Werner Ladder In The Community

Werner has, for many years, been active in supporting charities in their respective areas and markets, and now under WernerCo together we have made several generous donations to charities and organisations as part of our corporate social responsibility. Here’s some of them:

Ladders donated to The Youth Construction Trust & Building Heroes

Werner Ladder Donated to Youth Construction Trust

Earlier this year we donated products to help young unemployed people looking to set out in a career in construction. The Youth Construction Trust in Bermondsey, London gratefully received a range of ladders to be used as part of their training of disadvantaged young people. The trust is wholly funded by charitable donations, mainly from construction companies.

Werner Ladder donated to Building Heors charity
Building Heroes charity was another organisation who benefitted. The donation to Building Heroes will help the charity run a range of courses for military veterans to support them into the building trade. Based at the Brinsbury Campus of Chichester College, the charity aims to tackle unemployment amongst those who have served in the armed forces.

Fundraising for the NDCS

Sandra from our International Dept. whose grandson Jamie was born profoundly deaf. Jamie started wearing hearing aids at the age of just 4 weeks. After a lot of testing Jamie was passed for cochlea implants and the NDCS has been a great support for him and her daughter. They have been raising money for the charity since day 1, and last year on two events Werner donated a prize for these events, in which over £1,000 was raised from both events which the NDCS was very pleased with.

Christmas Donation to Shelter

Instead of sending our customers Christmas cards, we donated £1000 to Shelter – The UK’s leading charity to help homeless people in the UK. Homelessness still affects many people in the UK and seems to be more poignant at Christmas, as we all headed off for a well- earned break to spend time with our friends and families.

Different types of ladders are designed to keep you safe and productive when climbing or standing. Always select a ladder that is right for the job and meets the required standards; if in doubt, select a strong product. Using the wrong style of ladder or simply ignoring the limitations of climbing equipment can result in a fall or serious injury.
Reach Height is the maximum reach calculated by adding the maximum standing height on a ladder plus the average height of a 1.75m (5'6") person.
The highest ladder standing point on an extension ladder is typically 4 rungs from the top and a stepladder without a platform is 3 steps from the top. On a platform stepladder, the highest standing point would be the platform itself.
Ladders are designed to safely hold up to a specific amount of weight. The load capacity is defined as the maximum safe load on the ladder. A person's fully clothed weight plus the weight of any tools and materials that are carried onto the ladder must be less than the load capacity.
Werner ladders are made from fibreglass, aluminium, steel & plastic. 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, if working around electricity users should select fibreglass products due to their non-conductive stiles.
