  • Working at heights

    There seems to be lots of new houses with apex ceilings together with tall windows, being built in my area.
    In the past I've managed with stepladders or a single section of a full ladder.
    But just invested in a small staging ladder. It's lightweight and easy to assemble.
    Certainly made the fitting a lot easier, being able to walk along the full width.
    This was todays fitting. Curtains were 125" drop and the pelmet was 10" higher than that.

    What beautiful curtains John, and a very useful tip for fitting to such high windows.

    Best wishes

      It really does help to have the right tools for the right job. I could work from that, I hate working from a ladder as it feels so unsafe.
      Kind regards

        The first photo doesn't give too much idea of the height of the window......... the second one certainly did! Please can you tell us what make and model your platform is?

            This is the one that I got off Ebay
            http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2012531006...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
            Great price at under £60 and fast delivery. There are more expensive ones at Screwfix etc but for the amount of time that I will use it, I thought it was worth a try.
            The customer was well impressed!

              Thank you John that is really useful especially for someone as vertically challenged as myself! I always feel a bit wobbly on the steps.
              Gorgeous curtains too, very classy job.

              Kind Regards
