Ladder manufacturer, Werner, has further strengthened its offering to the trade with two new products developed with the busy professional in mind.
With welcome reports that the construction industry is showing further signs of recovery, it’s never been more important for trade professionals to have the best tools for the job. Working at height equipment in particular needs to put usability and safety first, helping the trades work more efficiently, reducing time on site and increasing overall productivity.
The Werner Extension Plus and Master Trade Stepladder have been designed to maximise the amount of time users can work at height. The aluminum Extension Plus is, as its name suggests, more than an extension ladder — it’s a combination ladder that transforms from an extension ladder in three easy steps. A specially designed mechanism means the ladder converts with a quick and easy sliding action, transforming into a large stepladder, stairwell ladder and freestanding extension (x4 model only). In proof that the safety on site is a priority in the design of Werner products, the stiles automatically click and lock into place. Similarly, the slip resistant ‘D’ shaped rungs and feet provide a stable footing, keeping you comfortable for long periods of time.
This hardworking ladder features a newly designed locking bar which increases safety by holding the open ladder in place. Despite added functionality, the ladder remains easy to move around thanks to specially engineered stile profiles that keep it light but strong and the thumb operated locking catches prevent sections from separating when in use, or when being transported or stored.
Another product within the range, the Master Trade Stepladder, is the first in a new line of ladders from the company that sees the design of traditional models further refined. Durable enough to cope with the toughest jobs, the unit features solid rivet construction throughout and heavy gauge plastic edge caps for a smooth profile.
Heavy-duty spreaders make the ladder easy to open and close, while a fully braced bottom section, large slip resistant feet, and a raised first tread at natural stepping height result in a no-fuss ladder that will stand up to everyday wear and tear. Meanwhile, the lower hinge design offers a compact footprint that enables users to get closer to their work.
Both the Extension Plus and Master Trade Stepladder are supplied with the confidence of a 25 year guarantee, which comes free with all our products as standard.
