About Us

Teletower founding Directors Jim and Richard Weston invented the world’s first telescopic ladder in 1989. Their invention was born from a simple idea of using a telescopic action in a ladder, to help people escape from a building in an emergency. Their new product, the Teletower, is based on the same proven concept but boasts far wider application, due to the global Working at Height Regulations 2005. This legislation cast some doubts over the use of ladders and steps in the workplace; hence the access market has already seen a significant shift towards mobile towers and fixed podiums.
