Maximum work height

With the ladder set up properly, how high can I expect the ladder to reach up a building vertically? If I were to draw a triangle, I'm assuming the 49' "reach height" would be the vertical leg not the hypotenuse, correct? Thanks!
Asked by: Anonymous
The reach height stated would be the maximum height the average user could expect to reach while working on the ladder.

Duty Rating Question

The duty rating on this ladder is 250lb. I weigh 255 so I'm already over the rating but adding paint or a 20lb tool belt only makes it worse. Is it safe for me to use this ladder? I've used many ladders with light duty ratings and never had an issue but want to make sure given the height of this ladder.
Asked by: Anonymous
The Werner never recommends exceeding the duty rating of any ladder. The ladders are designed, tested and rated to meet the specifications for a specific rating.

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.
Height is referring to the actual ladder height. Extension ladders should be 7 to 10 feet longer than the highest support or contact point, which may be the wall or roof line. The highest standing level is four rungs down from the top. The highest permitted standing level on a stepladder is two steps down from the top.

Reach height is the maximum reach assuming a 5’6” person with a vertical 12” reach.
Ladders are designed to safely hold up to a specific amount of weight. The Werner Performance System defines five different capacities using a color and star rating system. The Duty Rating is defined as the maximum safe load capacity of 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 offers ladder made from fiberglass and aluminum. 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 fiberglass products due to their non-conductive side rails.
