These wooden ladders have become increasingly hard to come by as Departments across the country transitioned to light weight aluminum. As
the wooden ladders were decommissioned, most had been destroyed. This particulat ladder is a 14 foot wooden roof ladder, which has 2 hooks at
the top that can be rotated out so the ladder can be placed over the peak of a roof to provide firefighters a safer way to work on a steep roof.
This ladder was manufactured by Duo Safety Ladder Company of Oshkosh Wis. The ladder is only being sold as a decoration piece of memorabilia.
The ladders overall condition is excellent in excellent unrestored condition, with very unique character. The ladder has a burn to the rail, that is charred approx 3/8 of the overall thickness at its deepest point. Displays a humbling vision of the dangers firefighters face. The ladder hooks work as they should, the varnish has come off in many parts with other minor signs of wear. Ladder is straight, no signs of warping, all rungs are tight.
