- Set up the ladder as per the ‘HSE Safe use of Ladders and Stepladders’ guide & the ‘Working at Height Act’.
- Place the LadderM8rix onto the surface, ensuring that the product has gripped the surface.
- Place the feet of the ladder against the wall of the product.
- Make sure you have placed the LadderM8rix at a position which allows the ladder to be placed at an angle of 1 in 4.
Before using the LadderM8rix, ensure:
Individual / organisation risk assessments have been carried out and which identified that:
• A ladder / ladder safety device is the most appropriate solution for the situation.
• A ladderM8rix is the most suitable ladder safety device for the requirements.
• The chosen LadderM8rix meets the surface needs.
• The ladder operative is competent and trained, and is following the ‘HSE Safe Use of Ladders and Stepladders Guide’ and the ‘Working at Height Act’.
• The ladder operative is wearing appropriate ladder safety workwear – the LadderM8rix Industrial, Professional & Pro-Plus all have sharp edges. Therefore, work safe footwear, clothing and safety gloves should be worn at all times.
• Inspection of the LadderM8rix has been carried out by a competent / trained person
• The ladder is secured at the top and middle (where appropriate) (see diagram) and other safety tools/precautions are implemented as per risk assessment outcome.
- Regular inspection of the LadderM8rix is to be carried out by a competent/trained person.
- The LadderM8rix must be set up on an even, horizontal and stable surface.
- For a leaning ladder, you should always secure it (e.g. by tying the ladder to prevent it from slipping either outwards or sideways) and have a strong upper resting point.
- Care and appropriate safety clothing and gloves must be used at all times to avoid injury from the sharp edges.
- Keep away from children and animals
- Store in protective case when not in use.
The LadderM8rix range only helps to reduce ladder slippage.
We always recommend ladder safety straps/ties should be used in conjunction with this product. Caution sharp edges.

Brilliant gizmo!!!! Really does the job
It will make using the ladder on the lawn possible as the grips hold secure. Worth spending the money. Not the cheapest but may be the best.
Anyone who uses a ladder should be trained and have knowledge about ‘working at height’ to ensure they’re equipped about the range of risks involved and the precautions necessary to prevent injury.
TB Davies created the Working at Height Training Academy to share their expertise and to offer a wide range of Working at Height safety courses from PASMA and The Ladder Association at their approved training centre.
