Library Ladders

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.

The Perfect Selection

Alaco Library Ladders are ideal for any application because each one manufactured is the result of a custom mix of a wide range of options.

What They’re Saying…

Alaco Ladders’ ease of installation, appearance and function lead to positive results for our closet customers, which in turn leads to more referrals for JL Closets. I have no hesitation recommending Alaco to anyone needing a ladder system because they offer a very solid product produced by a very professional company and staff.

I just received our Alaco Ladder and I must say it is beautiful – great craftsmanship and nice design. It was easy to setup and install. It adds the perfect aesthetic and functionality to the loft above the kitchen in my Florida Keys-style bungalow.

I enjoyed working with the Alaco Team. They made the purchasing process easy and informative so I was able to plan my ladder project to perfection.

We have been ordering ladders from Alaco for over a decade. Alaco has the best variety of wood and stain options available to us that best coordinate with our full product line. We have been very pleased with their level of product quality, customer service, and consistent lead times.
