The rolling library ladder is so much more than its name these days. You’ll find people installing ladders in their homes, in their businesses, and more due to their aesthetic appeal and great function. Depending on the amount of space in your home, you could conceivably install a library ladder just about anywhere. Look at all the different ways our ladder hardware is being used below!
Contractors love our ladder hardware. It’s easy to install and we offer a variety of custom options. Best of all, our library ladders are manufactured in the USA, making it an attractive purchase for those looking to support domestic production. This rolling library ladder comes with our Quiet Glide technology, which ensures a smooth ride however you need to use it. We had the ladder on display at the International Builders’ Show and created a video to show the ladder in action.
Last fall CS Hardware answered the call for a rolling library ladder needed to help outfit rooms for a family and their daughter who is living with a chronic illness. The Room to Dream Foundation was getting started on a new project for a child in need, and they contacted CS Hardware to get involved. Sydni, a young girl tackling a chronic illness, and her family, received a great home makeover with three re-vamped bedrooms. The bedroom CS Hardware worked on is a room with bunk beds for two children, which needing a rolling library ladder for easy access. Kids love having bunk beds and sharing a room with their siblings when they’re growing up. (Then of course, we all reach that age where “space” becomes paramount.)
The term “rolling library ladder” may conjure up some antique visuals. Ladders rolling on long tracks throughout cavernous library rooms; an old mansion’s designated library with a propped ladder near the shelf. The truth is that rolling ladders have moved beyond the library. The term may still apply to the hardware, but the implementation can be just about whatever you can imagine. While less common in the US, in other countries building up instead of out is more logical. So if you’re thinking of a way to expand that only requires a ladder instead extra square footage, you can save time and money.
