Get a ladder that’s as strong and versatile as you are.

Atom Telescopic Ladders are the best space saving alternative to traditional extension ladders. Compact and easy to get around indoors, they’re perfect for cleaning windows, clearing out the gutters, pruning, painting, and any of those other hard to reach indoor chores.

At only 11.3kg this ladder is made from tough anodised aluminium, so it’s not going to rust or corrode over time. From a closed height of only 94cm it can extend to a giddy 3.8m and unlike a traditional ladder you only need to extend to what you need. This makes it much easier to position the ladder at exactly the right height for what you working on.

To extend the ladder simply step on the bottom rung and lift it up. To secure the rungs simply lock in the latches on each leg at the height you wish to work at and you’re ready to go. When you’re done, simply release the latches, and the ladder shrinks back down to size. It’s that easy.

With a built in strap and handles, the ladder is super easy to get around and is the perfect size to throw in the back of the car or the corner of the garage. It’s the simple choice for smaller homes, townhouses, apartments, mobile homes or any house without a roomy empty garage.

Safe and easy to use, this Atom Telescopic Ladder is going to make light work of hard to reach chores. Don’t mess around with imitations - Get up an Atom today!

The Ladder is great. It takes up very little space in my van. As an option for a second ladder this fits the bill. A little heavy but I can live with that. Cape Palliser

Better than I expected

This ladder is super practical and easy to use. It is a lot heavier than I expected - which really helps to keep it stable. Having the ability to use it as a short ladder - then extend so I can easily get to the top of our 25k litre water tank - is a super good bonus. And it's easy to transport around in the car (try that with a normal huge ladder!) Only downside - store it upside down if it gets caught in the rain - this will let all the water drain out of the 'steps' - saving you from getting things wet when you next move it around. Definitely work the coin !

It is great we mainly got it as a fire escape ladder from the 2nd story. We did test it out with the grand kids and they wanted us to leave it up all the time. A great design for our requirements

We bought this ladder as an escape ladder from a low balcony. it's the perfect height for our purposes, it's heavy for what it is, but not so heavy that it's difficult to maneuver around. I was surprised it flexed as much, but overall happy with this purchase.

This is a great product and is extremely important to my business due to the compact nature and easy use. The only thing holding it back is a rubber cap for the top of the ladder to stop it marking walls.

Great ladder, appears to be well built, and takes up very little room to store, and no need for a roof rack if taking it somewhere. Add to that, that it is quick and easy to extend to whatever height you need, and you have a very handy item.

Having a ladder that can compact down to fit easily in the back of my hatchback is worth it's weight in gold. It takes seconds to deploy and although there's a bit of movement in the sections it's rock solid when there's weight on it. Minimal storage space also is very handy.

Just like a superhero this diminutive ladder packs a punch. It's small, fitting across the width of my car boot, but it's made like an All Black - tough, solid and not to be messed with. It's like an All Black in other ways too - it's versatile and not in the least bit cheap and nasty - quality all the way through. Just taking it out of the box I was impressed how solid it was. Highly recommended if you want a workhorse that's as cheap to keep and compact as a pony!

Great, especially indoors

I bought one of these because I needed a long but lightweight ladder that I could lay on my roof to get to the chimney flue (very steep pitch!). It worked great for that - the lightweight and adjustable length made it very easily to manoeuvre around at the top of the first ladder (to get me up to the roof). Since then I have used it a lot for reno and maintenance jobs: the light weight and adjustable length plus the ease with which the length can be adjusted make it excellent for those jobs where you are up and down and shifting about a lot, especially inside where it would be difficult to manoeuvre a traditional ladder of the same extended length. Collapsed it easily fits in the boot of any car. The only thing that I take a bit more care of with this ladder is that I keep the angle a little steeper than I might with a 'normal' ladder so that my weight rests more ont he feet and less on the joints.
