tendido is generally cable laying, but tendido superior is


Explanation:
overhead cable transport (of electrical energy or telephone signals). "Hoja" in structures having flaps (such as collapsible tables) refers to the flap. I don't know what you call that folding part of the ladder.

cables, ladder steps


Explanation:
"Cables" I'm sure of.

Oxford Sp.-Eng. Dict.:
tendido: 1 (elec) (a) (acción de tender un cable - sobre un superficie) laying; (-suspendido) hanging, running (b) cables (pl), wires, (pl) lines (pl)

So in this context, "cables" fits. If you need to translate the sentence "Tendidos se refiere al tendido aéreo de cables" I would use "cables" in the first instance and "running" (rather than "laying") in the second.

As for "se utilizarán escaleras de una o dos hojas", hojas must refer to the steps. You could render this either "single- or double-stepladders" or as simply (and I think more plainly and naturally "ladders of one or two steps".
