The Official Ladder of Pros Everywhere Launches

Greenville, PA, September 7, 2016 – This football season, Werner Ladder is cheering on their favorite kind of Pro. The world leader in ladders and jobsite climbing products is showing appreciation to its pro customers by hosting a Pro Football All-Star Weekend Sweepstakes.


The company will give away a 3-night VIP experience for two during the 2017 Pro Football All-Star Weekend in sunny Orlando, Florida on January 27 – 30, 2017. Valued at $4,900, this trip of a lifetime will recognize the hard working professionals, the ones who are building America every day, and doing it safely.  


“Our professional end-users work hard every day to stay safe and get the job done, however, most of the time, their efforts often go unnoticed,” said Chris Filardi, Vice President of Marketing at WernerCo. “So, we have decided to celebrate Pro Appreciation Month to show how much their effort mean to Werner and all of our employees. During Pro Appreciation Month we want pros everywhere to know how much we value the work they do, and we are are excited to launch our first ever All-Star Weekend Sweepstakes.”

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.
