Have you ever had one of those days where you question yourself about something?? Well today that happened to me, I have left the extention ladders at home and only brought a 6ft. step ladder and 22 ft little giant. In doing my bid, I thought I could use the little giant as a 12 ft step ladder and do these windows. Long story short ( I am short). I can only reach the inner section of the arch Over the years and a few pounds heavier I started to second guess myself about leaning the ladder on the window sill just above the exit sign. So do you think this safe? Or use a wagtail, pro curve adapter Thanks for your feed back.
We regularly clean windows like that with a extension ladder. Obviously, we have either a stand off or mitts at the top of the ladder and our pivot tool at the bottom(for the tile). It’s not going anywhere. As for the frames, most of your weight should be on the ladder and those frames are extremely sturdy in most cases.
i would be very wary of that tile floor (after i had a ladder slip on tiles,when using a rubber laddermat ) . i would get my helper to foot the ladder,the toes of his feet would be touching the bottom of the ladder ends,his feet flat on the tiles.soft rubber sole shoes i insist he wears at all times . i asked around old-timers and thats the only safe way to foot a ladder
I’ve done jobs like this. I used a combination of A-frame ladder (10 ft works well) and pole. I made sure that the ladder was far enough away from the windows, used a 9 foot pole with an unger swivel lock. I don’t mind standing on an A-frame while using a pole. The swivel lock works great on the half circle windows.
