D6232-3 32 ft Type IA Fiberglass D-Rung Extension Ladder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Two weight factors to keep in mind Because of the three-section design, you have to pull up 2/3 the weight of the ladder when you extend it standing (versus 1/2 for a two-section ladder). At 81 lbs for the 28' model D6228-3 type 1A, that means you have to hoist up 54 lbs on the extension rope (versus 40 lbs for the two-section). That's also more top-heavy weight making it more difficult to keep it stable as you set up. When I have room, I extend the first section while the ladder is on the ground, then stand it up and extend the top section as needed for reach.It does not slide easily making it rather tricky compared to my old two-sectional aluminum ladder. It's OK for occasional use, but consider carefully if this is a daily use item for your job, as it is for me.

What accessories are compatible?

I purchased this ladder and it is great. Is there a work tray like the AC24 that is compatible with this ladder? What other accessories are compatible with your extension ladders -- there should be a hyperlink on the product page that shows compatible accessories.

Why can't I seem to find your 3 section ladders anywhere in Canada? All I can find is the 2 section 32' ladder, but that's too long for my small car, but I need at least a 32' ladder, so the D6232-3 is really the only ladder I can use, but it's nowhere to be found where I live in Ontario.
Asked by: Phil
The D6232-3CA is a CSA approved ladder which means it is available for purchase in Canada. If a distributor does not have this ladder in stock they are able to special order. To find a listing of distributors in your area please visit www.wernerco.com and select Where to Buy.

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.
