At Home With Ivan
Ivan is one of our amazing Australian customers who recently purchased Rolling Ladder Hardware from us here in NZ. Ivan's project is now complete and we are so excited to share his RHP story with you.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO ADD A ROLLING LADDER FEATURE TO YOUR HOME?
We haven’t been in this house long, but one of the changes we wanted to make was to redo the dividing wall between the dining room and the lounge in a large high ceiling room. We changed it from a 2m high wall to 3.5m and extended it. This created an ideal wall for a library (to house all my wife’s books accumulated since she was at school.) A rolling ladder was an obvious choice to reach the upper shelves. A google search brought us to your website and after some research on the product and your company, it gave us exactly what we were after.
WHY DID YOU DECIDED TO MOUNT THE WHEELS ON THE INSIDE OF THE LADDER?
I put the wheels on the inside so the ladder would fit next to the TV unit when in the storage position. It is not as stable when rolling but is fine when climbed on because of the braked wheels.
HOW DID YOU FIND THE INSTALLATION OF THE RHP HARDWARE?
I downloaded the install instructions before ordering and could see it was going to be “easy peasy” provided the parts were of a quality as displayed. They were and it went up without any problems. My son-in-law is a carpenter and he offered to build the ladder using the dimensions on your install sheet. (Thanks for that).
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO PAINT THE LADDER IN THE SAME FINISH AS YOUR WALLS AND BOOKSHELF?
We used a dressed pine thinking we would use a wood stain, but we couldn’t find a stain to match the different timbers in the lounge so we painted it the same colour as our walls and library shelves - we are really happy with the finished result.
