Do the rungs go all the way through the side rails?

Can you see through the rung if looked at from the side or are the side rails still solid as with the heavier ladders?
Asked by: W
The rungs attached to a plate, and the plate is riveted to the side rails. Therefore, you cannot see through the rungs.

Im need an extension ladder of 2-8 ft.. Do you have such and what is the part number?

Asked by: Domingo
We do not have a 2-8ft extension ladder. We have some stepladders that reach that height. We do manufacture extension ladders from 16ft-60ft.

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.
