How to Make A Safety Ladder for you Home
Each home should have safety equipment, including a window well ladder. You can build these ladders to attach permanently, or they can simply be a chain rope chain ladder. Ladders are especially important in homes with multiple stories. To build your own window well ladder, you will need the tools below.
Step 1 - Permanent Ladder Mounts
Take 2 2x4-inch boards, place them 18-inches apart, and screw them vertically on the building site. They should extend from the top story window to reach 3-feet from the ground.
Step 2 - Screwing the Rungs
The ladder rungs, which are made of 2x4-inch boards need to be screwed horizontally on the verticals. Place them every 16-inches from the top to the verticals’ bottom.
Step 3 - Testing the Ladder
Climb the ladder a few times to test it. If it does not feel comfortable, the rungs can be adjusted accordingly.
