The Extension ladder is the lightest Type IA and IAA fiberglass extension ladder in the world. The extension ladder weighs up to 40 percent less than the leading competitorâ€™s standard fiberglass ladder without sacrificing strength and stability. The ladder’s wide rungs provide great comfort, reducing foot fatigue. It also features a unique side-mounted, dual-pulley system, which reduces the effort required to lift the fly section by 45% and removes a potential trip hazard caused by traditional center-pulley rope systems. The wide stance feet allows you to set the feet in either flat or spike positions and have them stay in place. The Extension Safety Ladders are OSHA, ANSI and CSA compliant.
ANSI Ladder Duty Rating (Load Capacity): â€” Type IA = 300 lbs. â€” Type IAA = 375 lbs.
CSA Ladder Duty Rating (Load Capacity): â€” Grade 1A = 136 kg. â€” Grade 1AA = 170 kg.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
The most catastrophic ladder accidents are caused by over reaching, working on uneven surfaces, and stepping from the ladder to the roof and back. People have attempted to solve the leveling problem with rocks and boards and are left to improvise, or do nothing.
The Extension Ladder is the only ladder in the world with a leveling outrigger system, which more than doubles the ladder’s base width and increases side-tip stability by up to 600 percent. The extension ladder’s intuitive safety features help ensure a safe, stable setup for any job on almost any surface and is lighter than any other manufacturer’s lightest ordinary extension ladders.
To be precise: the Extension Ladder, with the added safety of leveling outriggers, is still lighter than any other traditional extension ladder without sacrificing strength and stability.
The Extension Ladder also offers a side-to-side bubble level and front-to-back angle indicator, making it possible to set up the ladder safely.
It also features a unique side-mounted, dual-pulley system, which reduces the effort required to lift the fly section by 45% and removes the potential trip hazard caused by traditional center pulley rope systems.
LADDER BASE & FEET
Its wide rungs let you work comfortably without foot fatigue. The redesigned base allows you to set the feet in either flat or spike positions and have them stay in place.
The Extension Ladder’s exclusive hi-viz green rail has been scientifically proven to be the most visible hue of the color spectrum to the human eye. Why should a ladder need to be hi-viz? Some of the most catastrophic falls are caused by people who walk or drive into an extension ladder in use. People die simply because the ladder was not visible.
