Putnam Rolling Ladder Company
Celebrates Its
100th YEAR!

The No.1 Rolling Ladder for a Library Wall Unit

The No.1 Rolling Ladder is a beautiful addition to any home or business: it endures the rigors of industry yet has the grace and beauty of fine furniture.

Our famous No. 1 Rolling Ladder is made of best grade red oak or choice of other hard wood. Steps are screwed to rails, not nailed, and rods are placed under each step, for greater strength.

In lieu of a clear finish, the ladder can be stained in various popular wood shades, as desired, You may choose from any of the Minwax interior wood finishes, or, if you prefer to finish the ladder yourself, unfinished is also available.

The top slide feature, available in either roll type (No. 210) or hook slide, (No. 230) permits the rolling ladder to be pulled out for use or pushed back against shelves to conserve space. The roll type top fixture (No. 210) is for a ladder permanently attached to the track. The hook slide top fixture (No. 230) is used when a ladder needs to be removed from one section of track to another.
