When standing in front of the ladder the minimum desirable distance between the base of the ladder and any wall or obstruction behind the user is 0.8 meters and should not be less than 0.6 meters.
Pull out dimensions are given in the specifications below. For use in confined areas, check the available operating space and consult your dealer who can provide you with the exact pull out dimension for your installation.
