Can Werner ladders be used as a ladder gin?

Asked by: TF
We do not suggest using our ladders as a ladder gin. This is not something that we have tested so we cannot suggest this for safety purposes.

how do you unlock to slide up

Asked by: boomer
The locking mechanisms on the extension ladder are made to hold the fly section of the ladder in the extended position. To extend the ladder, simply slide the fly section of the ladder in an upward direction. The ladder locks will engage on each rung, until the desired height is reached. When using the ladder for the first time, there may be some packaging, tape or even the rope tied to the ladder preventing the extension or locks from moving.

why on earth isn't there a pully rope?

Asked by: paint it
In general, the Werner Co does not manufacture 16 foot extension ladders with a rope and pulley. When the ladder is fully extended, the bottom rung of the fly section is only 5 feet off of the ground. This can easily be reached by hand to raise and lower the ladder. A rope and pulley are available to be put on a ladder, if desired.

what does a "200 lb" load rating mean? I weigh more than that. is your ladder that flimsy

I want to gain access to my roof now and then to check the gutters
Asked by: ladder query
The D1116-2 Type III Aluminum extension ladder is rated for a maximum load capacity of 200 pounds. The load capacity of the ladder includes the user plus all materials used while on the ladder. The ladder's maximum load capacity should never be exceeded. Ladders of a higher weight capacity are available in 225 pound, 250 pound, 300 pound and 375 pound duty ratings. The appropriate ladder should be used for the weight that will be on the ladder.

Can a damaged rung be replaced on a D1124-2 Werner Ladder?

Please explain the difference between the working length of 21' and the reach height of 23'. Is 21' the actual length in the fully extended position?

Asked by: Bill
The working length of the ladder is the overall length of the ladder when it is extended to maximum. When the ladder is at its maximum working length, the reach height is the height a user can safely reach when standing at the highest allowable rung.

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.
