|Always store ladders in a covered, ventilated area, protected from the weather and away from too much dampness or heat. |
Ladders can fall if stored vertically, so take particular care. If possible, secure the top (with a bracket, for instance).
Never hang a ladder vertically from a rung.
Don’t store a ladder in any place where a child might be tempted to climb it.
For storing horizontally, a rack or wall brackets are ideal.Keep wooden ladders clear of the ground to avoid contact with damp.
For security reasons as well as good maintenance, don’t store a ladder on view outdoors where it could be stolen or used in a break-in.
