Answer: 
The Fiberglass Manhole Ladders should not be submerged in water for long periods of time. Fiberglass can wick moisture and may decrease the life of the product. Some fasteners on this ladder are made from steel and are not intended for storage in water.

It appears that the shortest one you have is 8'. Can I order one or can I cut it down and replace the top rail caps?

Answer: 
The shortest M7100-1 that we manufacture is 8ft. We cannot suggest cutting it down to a 6ft length for safety purposes. It will affect the duty rating of the ladder.

Manholes in our area are frequently filled water. We leave the ladders in the manholes for access at anytime by any of our crews. These ladders could be submerged for years. Will they hold up?

Thanks, Bill

Answer: 
The Werner Co does not offer a ladder that is designed to permanently mount inside of a manhole. All of the ladders are designed as portable ladders to be moved.

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.
