This super strong A-frame ladder provides a solid entry and exit from your pool. Built to last, this ladder is made from maintenance-free resin and uses only stainless steel hardware. Handrails extend below the platform to ease entry and exit from the pool, especially for kids. Extra-wide 18.5" treads and the top platform are non-skid for sure-footed traction. Base tread on both sides of the pool is pivotal and can be rotated to ensure a solid, level base for greater stability. Pivotal base tread is designed to prevent damage the pool liner, but a step pad may be used (sold separately). The ladder is fully adjustable, on both sides, to fit above-ground pools from 48" to 56" in depth. The outer ladder section slides up and locks so no uninvited swimmer may enter. Safety barrier under pool-side ladder protects young swimmers from becoming entangled behind the ladder. Our A-frame ladder meets all national and local codes for swimmer entrapment. Center adapters will accept coordinating pool fence (see NE1331-1333 and NE134L) for a completely enclosed pool area with no gaps. Can accommodate up to a 300 lb. swimmer. This season, invest in the finest A-frame ladder at this great price! Easy assembly. 5-Year Warranty.
