Issue 49 – May 2013
Two Transforma ladders do not fully comply with the mandatory safety Standard AS/NZS 1892.1:1996 Portable ladders – Part 1: Metal for ladders rated at 180kg. The ladders did not pass one of the tests included in the Standard and received inconsistent results for another.
The following products are affected:
- Transforma TRL35 ladder (35 different sized ladders in one)
- Transforma TRL24 ladder (24 different sized ladders in one)
→ The company that produces the ladders has re-rated these models and issued a revised instruction manual for safe use. If you intend to use your ladder for weights of more than 120 kg, call 0800 008 666 for more information.
