How far does the ladder set out from the wall? how much floor space does it take up?
Pam J on Jan 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Ladders project out at the floor from the wall 25% of their height.
Is everything needed to complete project included in the kit? How easily does it roll on carpet?
Lisa W on Oct 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Everything is included in regards to the ladder hardware. I purchased the rails and mounting brackets in addition to the kit. I installed on marble flooring but I don’t see any problem on carpet.
We are specing this specific product and would like to incorporate it into our submittal to the engineer. Is there a DWG or DXF that would make this easier?
