The reason why telescopic ladders are desired more by DIY experts is that they have more to offer than the normal straight ladders. They have great features that make them offer better service and reliability to users. This could explain why they are selling more than the normal ladders today. Their main distinguishing feature is their ability to fold and extend when it is needed.
While an ordinary ladder will remain the same when in use and not in use, the telescopic ones can be folded for storage and be extended whenever in use. An enlarging ladder will feature anti-slip feet that keep the user stable and safe as they work. This is what makes them the safest ladder types to use for DIY.
You can always work without worrying about slips and falls that could lead to serious injuries especially if you are working higher from the ground. Telescopic ladders are strongly built from aluminum. Their strong construction makes them tough and sturdy, therefore able to carry even heavier persons.
Most of them have a load capacity of up to 150kg. These ladders are also light in weight and are therefore very easy to install, fold after use and transport from one place to the other. Their ability to extend makes them the best to use even in higher places because they can extend as far as one wants, with no limitations. Lastly, most of them are multipurpose kinds of ladders that can be used for more than one application.
