Are lightweight folding ladders safe?

I am thinking about buying one of the Gorillaladders.

It all depends on what you need the ladder to do. If you purchase this ladder I would follow the weight guidelines which are normally posted on the ladder in a form of a sticker. If these guidelines are followed then the ladder should be perfectly safe to use for whatever purpose you need.

Lightweight, folding ladders are usually made of aluminium, and are generally completely safe. They will usually have some kind of label on them to prove that they're safe.

Folding ladders are safe but you do not want one that is too light. It will tip easily when you are on top of it. Get a heavy duty one.

Yes. As long as you follow the safety instructions, it is very unlikely that you will have an injury or an accident.
