Climbing Equipment FAQS
WHAT SIZE LADDER DO I NEED?
Size refers to the ANSI definition of length. ANSI states that the size is defined by the combined length of all rail sections, with a tolerance of +/-3” on each section. Note, this does not take into account any overlap between sliding sections like those on an extension or multi-purpose ladder. This can cause a disparity in the size of the ladder versus the actual height. To determine which ladder you need, Werner recommends you reference maximum reach height instead of size.

(OSHA) code requirements, where applicable.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SIZE AND MAXIMUM REACH HEIGHT?
Ladder specifications can be confusing due to safety regulation requirements. According to ANSI (American National Standards Institute), the ladder size is defined as the total length of each section and does not account for overlap on extension ladders.
As a result, the overlapping sections reduce the total length of the ladder. When purchasing any ladder customers should pay particular attention to the maximum reach to ensure the correct product for the job.
CAN I PURCHASE A REPLACEMENT SECTION FOR MY EXTENSION LADDER?
For safety reasons, Werner Co. does not offer replacement of the individual sections of an extension ladder.
HOW CAN I REPAIR MY DAMAGED LADDER OR DOES WERNER OFFER A LADDER REPAIR SERVICE?
Werner Co. does not recommend repairing a damaged ladder and does not offer a repair service through the company.
DO YOU OFFER A WARRANTY ON YOUR LADDERS?
Werner Co. does not have a written warranty on their products. However, we do stand behind the quality of our products.
WHY ARE PAIL SHELVES NOT ON ALL FIBERGLASS LADDERS?
The unique design of our multifunctional top eliminates the need for pail shelves in most cases. However, there are a limited number of models available with pail shelves. Pail shelves are also available as an accessory. Refer to the Products page for more detail.
