Ladder

A ladder is a piece of equipment made from rope, metal or wood. It has two lengths either side which are joined by rungs or bars in the middle.

A ladder is usually placed vertically against a wall or tall object to provide a method of climbing up and down. Painters, window cleaners and roofers often use ladders to reach higher positions safely.
