Product overview

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

The Atom Multi Ladder 17 combines the strengths of traditional A-frame, uneven A-frame and extension ladders, and trestle scaffolding, into one tidy package. With adjustable sections and a simple 'Click & Lock' hinge system, you’ll wonder why you didn’t get one sooner. When you’re done, it’s compact enough to fit into a cupboard or throw it in the back of the car. Just don’t lend it to your neighbour - you’ll never get it back.

Safety Atom Ladders are designed to be amongst the safest and most stable in the world. With flared ends and slip-resistant feet, you won’t have to worry about unnecessary movement. The double locking hinge is designed to ensure that no matter your setup, you can depend on an Atom Ladder.

Strength Atom Multi Ladders are made from heavy duty aluminium alloy. Each rung is double-riveted for rock solid strength and stability you can depend on. All of the Atom Multi Ladder range meet AS/NZS Ladder standards (AS/NZS 1892) and have a maximum load of 150kg, making them ideal for both home and professional use.

Positions - Classic A-Frame
With a simple click into position, the Atom Multi Ladder can be used as a traditional A-Frame ladder.
- Uneven A-Frame
As you can adjust the Atom into smaller increments, you’ll be able to extend one side of the ladder, making it safe to use on multi-level surfaces such as stairs or kerbs.
- Multiple Extensions
For the bigger jobs, you don’t need a bigger ladder. Simply flip it around, click into place and you’ve got an extension ladder perfect for reaching rooftops or trees.
- Scaffold Trestle
The Atom Multi Ladder can be separated, so you can easily turn it into a handy base for a scaffold system. Just add a plank and you’re ready to go.

Say goodbye to your old ladder and choose the one that’s above the rest. Get up an Atom today.

Originally had a Transforma Ladder and lost one section off the trailer. Not tied down properly. Purchased this ladder for less than replacing the lost part of my old ladder. This ladder is half the price of the brand I have and does exactly the same job. EXCELLENT.

So far this ladder has been awesome and works well, it appears strong enough and easy to adjust, unsure how it will hold up over the years but is so versatile - I needed a small inside ladder and an extension to get onto single story roof - Atom ladder works well for me and is small enough to store on my garage wall - Happy with quality & would say is great value for money

Mac Auckland

Every house should have one of these!

over 3 years ago


I really can't exaggerate what a great ladder this is. The extensions are a breeze to adjust, and it is by far THE most stable, rigid ladder I've ever used. Because of its features, there is obviously a bit of a weight penalty, but nothing that would worry any healthy person. On top of all this, it is only a fraction of the cost of similar things advertised on TV. Not many products impress me this much.

I have found the Atom ladder extremlely useful for all DIY jobs in and around the house. I recently moved into a new house which needed much work to be done. Gutter cleaning , cleaning roof to changing light bulbs. This ladder was useful for all the jobs and is extremely easy to use. I have yet to set to full length configuration but that must be easy as.
