9' 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.
- 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)
If you mount the top rail at the top edge of the loft, you surely could climb over the top. That my ladder is on rollers, and your choice might be that as well, give me concern about the ladder moving as you climb onto it to leave the loft. For a loft ladder, you might want the ladder to have side rails that extend above the top edge of the loft to have something to hold onto as you exit the ladder to the loft or mount the ladder to step down. I probably wouldn't use this ladder for that purpose. Hope this helps.
