    Since I am too vain to read a ladder website...

    Anyone know how to keep an old yellow fiberglass ladder from sheading fiberglass into your body?

    Any special treatments?

    I have one that is around 13 years old... great ladder, but everytime your arm or leg bumps it you get fiberglass in you.

    thanks

    I wonder if Varathane would work? Might lose it's non-conductive principles though.

    Throw it away and buy a new one. Read OSHA's requirements on what constitutes the need to repair or replace. Your ladder should have a label on it that tells you what to do with it. Good luck.

    thanks troy... the ladder labels are long gone.. good steady ladder though.

    Like I said in the first post... too vain to do a search, besides I am still working and ain't got time..

    just thought I would ask.

    thanks

    Better send it to me and go out and buy yourself a new one. You dont want to risk using it and by giving it to me you can be assured that you will no longer have fiberglass problems. You might want to try some of the other guys fixes before you send it to me.....you sure wouldnt want me sueing you, would you.
