Library Ladders add beauty, style and functionality to any room. Alaco Library Ladders boast the strength and engineering of an industrial ladder with the look of a fine piece of furniture – the perfect blend of form and function.
Alaco Library Ladders are available in an impressive selection of natural hardwoods or in aluminum with powdercoat finishes – along with a variety of hardware finishes to complement any ladder style.
Design & Construction
Although every library ladder produced by Alaco is custom-crafted to specific needs and applications, the use of common features and components provides design flexibility and both cost savings and construction efficiency.
Wood library ladders are assembled with steel rods and plated steel braces for maximum comfort and strength. Each ladder incorporates a blind mounted grab bar on the top rung and a reinforced, oversize bottom step for additional strength and safety.
Straight: for use in most applications
Bent: when needed to clear bookshelves, desks, cabinets
Freestanding with platform: for shorter bookshelves and cabinets
Functional and contemporary aluminum library ladders are available in either a natural milled finish or in 7 attractive and durable powdercoat finishes. Custom colors may be available on request.
Wood library ladders are available in an impressive selection of natural hardwoods: Alder, Birch, Cherry, Mahogany, Maple, Red Oak, White Oak or Walnut (Other woods by request). Wood Ladders may be unfinished, have a clear gloss or satin finish or be colored with a Minwax stain.
A wide variety of metallic and enamel finishes are available for the ladder hardware. Hardware may be finished to blend in with the ladder or may contrast as a design element.
