Irish International Trading Corporation PLC is one of Irelands leading wholesalers of Hardware, Steel, Wire, Salt, Plumbing materials and Bathrooms. With new Ladder Standards in 2019, IITC are offering an exclusive range of new compliant Youngman Ladders. EN131 is a European committee for standardisation (CEN) harmonised standard
for portable steps and ladders, manufactured from metal and certain other materials such as GRP. It covers minimum safety requirements.
The European Commission is dissatisfied with elements of the previous standard (BSEN131) and has issued an EC Mandate for the standard to now include requirements
for stability, slip, durability and strength in position of use which will help in preventing the main causes of ladder related accidents. The main changes to tests required by the new EN131 standard involve the ladders now being tested in position of use and the clarification of test methodology ensures consistency across manufacturers and test facilities.
This range will contain a selection of Stepladders, 2+3 Part Aluminium Ladders, Telescopic Extension Ladders, Platform Ladders and Roof Ladders along with an extensive range of Ladder Accessories.
From builders’ stepladders to shock-resistant fibreglass, work platforms and extension ladders, IITC have the full range, with special features to help your customers work safely and efficiently.
