What Makes Butlin Ladders The Best?
Butlin equipment is designed by experienced people with trade backgrounds. We know what it’s like running a contracting business. It’s tough and hard work. We understand the frustration when things that should work don’t. We have learnt over many years that cheap tools cost far too much. That’s why we created Butlin Maxi Equipment.

Ladder Risks and Injuries
If the ladder is not in good condition or is used unsafely, falls can occur. Causing fractured limbs, spinal cord damage, severe brain injury or death.Read More
On average, 4.5 Australians, mainly men, die each year after falling from a ladder. Most men injured or killed after falling from a ladder were at or nearing retirement age and were doing maintenance around the home.
The Australian National Coroners Information System indicates:
the average age of people who die in ladder-related accidents is 65 years old
32 per cent of deaths were in the 70–79 year age group
96 per cent of fatalities were male
over 85 per cent of deaths occur in non-occupational activities
Thirty-four per cent of these deaths occur during home maintenance activities.
Ladder injury occurs in an older age group than DIY injuries in general — the peak age for DIY injuries is 30–34 years.
Ladder Safe Use
Here are some safety precautions while using your ladders:Read More
- Read the safety warnings on the ladder and follow the manufacturer’s advice.
- Ensure the ladder is in good condition and fitted with non-slip safety feet.
Store it in a dry place to prevent warping or corrosion.
- Place the ladder on dry, firm and level ground that is clear of power lines and exposed electrical wiring, and engage all locks and braces.
- Secure the top of an extension ladder into position before starting work. The top of the ladder should extend at least one metre over the top of the surface it is resting against.
- Stay in the centre of the ladder as you climb. Never lean out too far from a ladder. Always work within arm’s reach and be careful when pulling items from shelves, gutters and roofs as this may cause you to lose your balance.
- Only climb to the second rung from the top of a step ladder or the third rung from the top of an extension ladder.
- Two people should never climb the ladder at the same time even if their combined weight is below the maximum weight capacity.
- Never use a ladder if you are alone and cannot get assistance if you have an accident.
