ALCO-LITE Supplies the Fire Service with the Original Aluminum Fire Ladder

In 1930, Sam Carbis invented the aluminum fire ladder and founded a new industry. Today, four generations later, his family continues to maintain the Aluminum Ladder Company (ALCO-LITE) as the leader in fire department ground ladder technology.

The ALCO-LITE name is synonymous with quality, dependability, and service. For these reasons, ALCO-LITE fire ladders are used by all types of departments -- paid and volunteer, large and small -- throughout the United States and the world. These departments have found, over the years, that ALCO-LITE is a name upon which you can stand.

All ALCO-LITE fire department ground ladders meet or exceed the applicable National Fire Protection Association (N.F.P.A.) standards for fire department ground ladders. These ladders are designed to be used in accordance with the practices established by both the National Fire Protection Association (N.F.P.A.) and the International Fire Service Training Association (IFSTA). For complete information on these practices, please contact the appropriate organization to obtain their most current documents relative to fire department ground ladders.

In addition to manufacturing aluminum ladders for over sixty-five years, we have manufactured fiberglass ladders for the industrial market for forty years. With that technology and experience behind us, we at Aluminum Ladder Company are pleased to offer fiberglass fire department ground ladders that provide an extra degree of safety when working around charged circuits.

Innovation, quality, dependability, and commitment to fire service have been the cornerstones of our business. That’s why “it only makes sense to buy your fire ladders from the people who invented them”.
