Description

The Extension ladder is the lightest Type IA and Type IAA fiberglass extension ladder in the world. The extension ladder weighs up to 40 percent less than the leading competitor’s standard fiberglass ladder without sacrificing strength and stability. The ladder 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.

The Ground Cue is included only on Type IAA ladders, and is an audible and tactile signal to let you know you when you have reached the bottom step of the ladder. Missing the bottom rung causes close to 20 percent of all ladder-related falls, making it one of the two most common causes of ladder related injuries, according to a study published by the American Ladder Institute. The Ground Cue is designed to prevent these types of accidents.

ANSI Ladder Duty Rating (Load Capacity): — Type IA = 300 lbs. — Type IAA = 375 lbs.
CSA Ladder Duty Rating (Load Capacity): — Grade 1A = 136 kg. — Grade 1AA = 170 kg.



FEATURES & BENEFITS

CHALLENGE
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.

SOLUTION
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.

LIGHT WEIGHT
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.

VISUAL INDICATORS
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.

DUAL-PULLEY SYSTEM
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.

HI-VIZ GREEN
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.

!! CAUTION !! This is a fall protection system. The system must be used in strict conformance with the manufacturer's instructions. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death.

Extension Safety Ladder with Outriggers - Components

Extension Safety Ladder - Cable Hooks & Claw The Cable Hook and Claw allows an operator to securely fasten the top of the extension ladder to an overhead mount, to scaffolding, or to a utility pole stand before ascending the ladder. The Claw’s clamp mechanism is activated by the weight of the ladder and is more securely fastened when bearing the weight of the operator.
Extension Safety Ladder - V-Rung The V-rung is a steel rubber grip for slip-resistant performance for use on wood, metal or concrete poles.
 Extension Ladder - Ground Cue The Ground Cue is only included on Type IAA (load capacity 375 lbs.) ladders. This feature is not part of any upgrade. It is an audible and tactile signal to let you know you when you have reached the bottom step of the ladder.

Missing the bottom rung causes close to 20 percent of all ladder-related falls, making it one of the two most common causes of ladder related injuries, according to a study published by the American Ladder Institute. The Ground Cue is designed to prevent these types of accidents.
