Ground Ladder Testing and Certification


Next to themselves, Firefighters make more severe demands upon their ground ladders than any other piece of equipment.

Because of emergency conditions in an uncontrollable environment, Firefighters cannot always observe recommended precautions.

Service Testing of Aluminum, Wood and Fiberglass Ground Ladders for Fire Departments follows the guidelines of the NFPA 1932 Standard "Use, Maintenance and Service Testing of Fire Department Ground Ladders."

These guidelines include:

  •     Visual Inspection
  •     Horizontal Bending Test
  •     Roof Hook Test
  •     Hardware Test
  •     Hardness Test
        (aluminum ladders)

Our inspection procedure is a reliable way of detecting the deterioration of mechanical properties which make a ladder much weaker.
