8' Vertical Rails for Rockler Vintage Library Ladder Steps

Our pre-machined wooden ladder rails, make building your own rolling library ladder is as easy as 1, 2, 3 — sand, finish, and assemble. Each kit includes two matching vertical rails, which are cut, shaped, bullnosed, and drilled to accept the corresponding cast metal Vintage Library Ladder Steps (#45514 and #49388, sold separately). The tops of the rails are drilled to accept our Classic Rolling Library Ladder hardware (#42285, sold separately). The vertical rails are available in three heights: 8', 9' and 10'; and in three wood species: oak, cherry and maple, all fully machined from clear lumber.


Features:

  • All parts are cut, shaped, bullnosed, and drilled
  • Just sand, finish and assemble
  • Hole for top dowel is an 1/8'' pilot hole, which accepts our metal Decorative Ladder Spindle (included with Item #45514, sold separately)
  • The carrier will need to know if delivery is to a residential address (we'll ask you about that during checkout). There is no charge for this.
  • Ladder hardware sold separately.
  • There is an additional $100.00 shipping charge for this item.

Love my ladder.
It was easy to assemble and install. I would have had a tough time manufacturing the wood ladder rails, so I was glad to be able to order them. The basic kit comes with rods that are not needed if you purchase the cast steps...seems like a waste.

These are NOT "kits!"
The ladder "kits" sold here are not kits but only one of the components of an actual kit. Very disappointed to find out that the ladder "kit" I had ordered consisted of two rails and nothing else. True kits should include all parts so that the consumer is able to assemble those parts to complete the project. Dictionary, anyone? EDITOR'S NOTE: We are working to clarify this offer so it is clear that the wooden components and hardware are sold separately.

Does this come with the hardware?? If not do you sell the kit and the price, please
Karren J on Aug 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: On the landing page for this product you will find a red banner titled "Ladder Design Wizard". If you click on the banner it will guide you through the selection process and provide a complete Bill of Material when you finish.
What is the width of the ladder?
Jenny G on Jan 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The "kit" (and I use that word lightly) only comes with the ladder side rails so the width is whatever size steps you buy or fabricate.
what are the rungs made of. plastic or metal?
d z on Oct 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Vintage ladder rungs are made of metal.
Trying to make a shorter ladder than 8 feet. Do you have a calculator tool for shorter ladders?
s s on Oct 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would guess that you would be fine to shorten it-- but you will need to shorten it by full steps-- i.e. take out one complete rung and distance between so the steps size remains the same. The rest of the hardware will work fine.
Can you detach the ladder and hang out of the way till needed?
Martha W on Jul 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can detach or you can move the bottom over so it is standing straight up and down from the bar. The hooks on the top move up or down to maintain contact with the rail
Can the track be cut down to 8 foot length ?
