How to safely use a conservatory roof ladder

Do you need to clean the top of your conservatory? re-tile your roof? Or Access any glazed roofing?

If so you’ll need either a conservatory roof ladder or a standard roof ladder to help you complete your work!

Our conservatory roof ladders are easily adjustable for the height and slope of the roof on which they shall be used with the adjustable base helping to stabilise the unit on uneven or sloped ground. The conservatory roof ladder is simple, safe and strong whilst also being incredibly lightweight and very user friendly. The horizontal access beam should be supported by two glazing bars; this will help evenly distribute the weight of both the ladder and load into the solid structure of the roof and not the glass itself.

The ladder also incorporates a purpose built tool tray and bucket recess which allows the user a hands free operation.

The conservatory roof ladder is made up of 2 main components:

  • The footing ladder – this is the upright ladder from you will climb up in the usual fashion
  • The roof ladder – this is the secondary section which will be placed on the actual roof of your structure.

To use the conservatory roof ladder it first must be assembled. To do this we have a simple 12 step guide that will help you erect our conservatory roof ladder as quickly and safely as possible. With Hire Station the equipment will normally be provided in 2 separate parts but on some occasion the components maybe further broken down for safety and transport reasons. Just to cover all aspects this guide will take you through the longer version of assembly. If you're ladder is delivered in just 2 sections you can skip to step 8.

1. Once your item has been delivered lay the components out ready for assembly. Step 1
2. Push the stabiliser foot into the bottom of the footing ladder. Step 2
3. Remove the pins that are located in the eave batten. Step 3
4. Slide the eave batten over the stiles of the footing ladder. Locate the height adjustment holes of the stile using the captivated pins. Ensure the pins are firm and solid once you have inserted them. Step 4
5. Locate the black wheel screws. Step 5
6. Screw the two wheel screws into the sliding shoes of the ladder. Step 6
7. Ensuring the captivated pins are fully secure attach the top batten to the roof ladder section using the stile holes. Step 7
8. Next you need to move the footing ladder into position. If you are uneven ground firmly squeeze the lever at the base of the ladder and this will allow the levelling foot to be released and settle in a stable position. It is also worthy to note that the ladder should positioned at an angle of 75 degrees or a 4:1 ratio. Step 8
9. Keeping the tethering strap horizontal, attach the suction cup to a suitable glazed window. The image we have used is for demonstration purposes only, normally the suction will be attached directly to the glass. Step 9
10. Slide the roof ladder up and over the lower ladder and onto the glazing bars. Step 10
11. Locate the top hat pins on the roof ladder and make sure they are fully situated in the slots of the sliding shoes. You will need to adjust the shoe to make sure the roof ladder settles onto the eaves batten. Once is this done you and tighten the black wheel screws to secure the whole unit. Step 11
12. Slide the kneeler to your desired position on the roof ladder. Step 12

Your conservatory roof ladder is now safe and secure to use. To disassemble the unit simply follow these instructions in reverse.
