ladders (looking for a library ladder)

and with a rail. love it :D The imposing shelf unit in the history archive of an investment bank in London is a completely unique construction. It combines the flexibility of a Vario sliding ladder with a radiused rail and the space-saving technology of an Akzent telescopic ladder. On this ladder you will feel safe even when high up because it also has a railing for you to hold onto. And it is high: at almost 4.0 m you can reach the top shelves easily. by MWE // Available upon request!

this makes sense: Akzent telescopic sliding ladder

so...i have an old, tall, oak, drawerless, file cabinet. maybe i can do something like this?

Now this is something I could use for "the rest of my life, everywhere! It needs wheels with stoppers though. Then I could push it from room to room."

best design ever. I can see making this a little taller (8 steps vs. 3) and the rungs a little deeper for more sure stepping. it should be still foldable and lightweight for hanging on the wall when needed.

Cloister Library Steps

Central American Primitive Ladder =not my favorite, but keeping for ideas

Painted Country Ladder good design base is too wide

19th century oak library steps this one is just about perfect

Industrial Crank Scaffold Ladder like bringing a gun to a pencil fight

Folding Library Ladder i know i wanted a folding library ladder, but...

19th Century Metamorphic Table/Library Ladder i think i would not be comfortable stepping on this.
