What Is EN131?
EN131 is a significant standard in the ladder industry, impacting the design and safety of portable ladders. This standard, adopted by the UK as BS EN 131, covers all types of portable ladders, including step, extending, and combination ladders. The standard has been substantially revised to make ladders wider, stronger, and sturdier, enhancing safety for users. The previous British Standards, BS 2037 and BS 1129, often referred to as Class 1 and Class 3 ladders, are no longer available, and all ladders should now be designed and manufactured to the current EN 131 standard.
Has the load changed on a new EN 131 ladder? To meet the revised EN 131 standard, ladders are designed and tested to take a maximum total load of 150 kg, including the user, their tools, equipment, and any materials.
What is the difference between EN131 Professional and Non-Professional Ladders? Although ladders approved to the revised EN 131 standard carry the same load rating, Professional ladders are subject to tougher durability requirements, as they are expected to be subjected to more onerous use.
When will the new EN131 take effect? The revised EN131 Ladder standards are already published. The parts of the British standards, BS1129 and BS 2037, which relate to ladders and stepladders have been withdrawn because we cannot have British Standards which conflict with European Standards.
Can I still use my current ladders? If you have ladders that were compliant with the obsolete and withdrawn standards you may continue to use them if they are still in good condition. But, when those ladders are worn out or damaged and need replacing, or if you need to purchase more ladders, you should only buy ladders which meet the latest EN131 standard.
What should I do now? For business users, it's recommended to update procurement policies to ensure all future new and replacement ladders comply with the revised EN 131 standard. For ladder users in the home, when purchasing new ladders or replacing existing ones, you could buy either EN 131 Non-Professional or Professional ladders.
What does this mean for trestles and stagings? The specifications for trestles and stagings in BS 1129 and BS 2037 remain current and valid while the Ladder Association continues to work with BSI and other parties on the revisions to those standards.
Do I need re-training? You don’t need re-training to use the new style ladders (compliant with the current EN 131 standard). If you haven’t had ladder training, Ladder Association training equips people to understand the essential points about safe use, handling, and storage of ladders, together with the potential hazards of their use.
