Different types of ladders are designed to keep you safe and productive when
climbing or standing. Using the wrong style of ladder or simply ignoring the
limitations of climbing equipment can result in a fall or serious injury.
Ladders are designed and constructed to safely hold up to a specific amount of weight. Werner ladders come in two different Duty Ratings
identified by their application in domestic or industrial settings.
Werner offers ladders made from fibreglass and aluminium. Each material has characteristics which make it best for certain applications,
or one material may simply fit the personal preferences of the user. For example, fiberglass is recommended when there is
potential contact with electrical wires or a hostile environment, such as exposure to certain chemicals.
