Abstract: A scaffold for an A-frame ladder, including a platform for being positioned between two legs of the ladder, supported on a bottom side of the platform intermediate two opposing ends thereof by a rung of the ladder and extending outwardly from opposite sides of the ladder. The scaffold includes a first strut pivotally attached to the bottom side of the platform adjacent one end thereof and extending diagonally downward for engagement with a rung of the ladder below the rung supporting the bottom side of the platform, and a second strut pivotally attached to the bottom side of the platform adjacent the other end and extending diagonally downward for engagement with the rung of the ladder with which the first strut is engaged.
Abstract: The present invention discloses an emergency ladder equipment. Such an emergency ladder equimpment is mounted on the outside wall of the top floor of buildings. The emergency ladder equipment substantially comprises a number of ladder members which are stored in a storage case in a stacked or folded manner except for an emergency case, wherein the storage case is mounted on the outside wall of buildings. Each ladder member is connected by a connecting device to the subsequent ladder member. Furthermore, the bottom end of each ladder member is supported by a support stay disposed in the storage case. By releasing the support stay, each ladder member slides down one after another in series while being connected by a plurality of connecting devices to form a complete ladder which is installed along the outside wall of the building.
Abstract: A device for automatically locking the fly assembly of an extension trestle ladder in an extended or lowered adjustment position. The fly assembly is supported to prevent downward movement by a displaceable member which abuts a rung on the fly assembly along a portion of the length of the rung, which member is spring biased for automatic return to locking position.
