Life-safe Fiberglass ladders have many benefits like, Since man evaluated modern means of life centuries ago, he established tools of comfort to enjoy safe living on earth with the passage of time his desires and needs increased, thus resources expanded and every day activities jumped from land to the heights of sky. To raise himself from ground level to upwards one of the simplest tool since centuries is a Ladder. The oldest ladders may have been built from wooden members of something else. But at present there are countless materials used for its fabrication. Similarly type and designs of ladders are countless. For every new requirement or activity a new design or a new type of material is available to fabricate ladders catering to the ultimate safety requirements of its end user.
When electric power became an obedient servant for the comfort of human life; metallic ladders became life hazards. Wooden ladders do have good electrical insulation properties but in rainy season and high humidity areas, their ability to absorb moisture does not favor electrical insulation requirement.
Wood is very porous by nature, which is not true of fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP or GRP). Since there is a bond between the reinforcement and polymer system. FRP can absorb some moisture but it will never absorb as much as wood. That very small amount of moisture is absorbed by FRP by a wicking action at the surface through exposed fibers or at either of the end rails. This moisture will reduce its electrical insulation to some extent in case of micro measurement but not to the extent that is dangerous for human life. This moisture never reduces its mechanical properties. Moisture absorption is not visible in FRP and electrical insulation test DC voltage can confirm its presence.
In case of some confirmation or confusion that a FRP ladder has absorbed considerable moisture, it should be placed either in a re-circulating air heating chamber at 50º C- 75º C for 4 to 8 hours or left in sunshine for 3 to 4 days. Let it remain outdoors in sunny conditions. Following this the ladder should be recoated with some good quality polyurethane paint. Acrylic modified clear polyurethane lacquer has also very good compatibility with fiberglass. Either PU paint is applied or clear lacquer, it should be ultraviolet (UV) stabilized. There are numerous brands of polyurethane coatings available in the market.
