    We use UL to do our ladder testing. They do a fine job.

    To see NFPA 1932, click the link. You just can't print it.

    NFPA 1932 for review

    Wink ladder testing

    Depends on the ladder. Wood, aluminum and manufacturer. A third party test service is the only way to go.

    Diversified Testing in Searcy, Arkansas. There is also a 2nd company in the same city. They both go nationwide for testing.
    Stay low and move it in.

    Be safe.

    The fire departments in Masachusetts Fire District 14 use Aerial Testing out of Lebanon PA to test their ground ladders and aerials.

    Here is their website...

    We have used National Testing for the past 5 or so years for all ground and areial ladders, Fire One is also another possible source(they are excellent for pump testing as well)
