What is the overall width?

I am looking to use this product in a loading ramp application and will need specific dimensions to allow the stage to interface with the current design. Could I possibly get the design specifications for the 8 foot long stage that is 28 inches wide?

what is the maximum permissable clear span of the 2724 28in W x 24 ft L stage? What s the minimum bearing area required? thanks Brad

Asked by: Anonymous
Per OSHA there must be a 12"-18" overhang when using the stages. The 2724 is 24ft long so that length will vary depending on how much overhang you use.

What is the spacing for the handrail brackets?

Asked by: Anonymous
The handrail brackets are spaced along the length of the plank, at different intervals based on the rung positions. The initial handrail is 19 inches from the end of the rail, and the rest are in intervals of 5 and 6 feet apart for the length of the stage.

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.
