Werner shortlisted for the Building Innovation Awards 2022

Oct 10, 2022

Werner, the leading manufacturer of ladders and access equipment, is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted for this year’s Building Innovation awards. The awards recognise and celebrate the pioneering individuals, organisations and partnerships that are embracing emerging technologies and digital transformation in order to take UK construction to the next level.

The company is a finalist in the Most Innovative New Product category with its flexible 3 in 1 combi-ladder, the Leansafe X3. Designed following user feedback, this professional ladder minimises the need for multiple ladders on a job.

Bushra Imtiaz, UK Marketing Manager for Werner, said: “The Building Innovation Awards recognises products that are helping to elevate the UK construction market and Werner is delighted that the Leansafe X3 ladder has been shortlisted for this award.

“We wanted to support the construction industry by addressing work at height challenges and listened to the feedback from users to design a ladder that would increase productivity. Feedback from users has shown that the ladder is making a real difference throughout the construction industry, and we couldn’t be prouder of that.”

Listening to feedback from professionals, Werner knew that users had a need for a professional, flexible 3 in 1 ladder solution. Often within the industry an incorrect ladder is used for a job as the user only has one in the van or is unable to transport multiple ladders – this is where the Leansafe X3 originated from. Using market research, Werner designed a product based on user demand that makes working at height easier and safer.

This professional ladder features a single-handed unlocking system that allows users to seamlessly change from a step to a straight ladder in one easy adjustment. It has also been uniquely designed with a multi-mode top, providing a solution for all leaning modes, enabling the ladder to be securely used against flat wall surfaces, external and internal corners, poles, and wall studs as well as having the ability to perform as a standard stepladder or extension ladder.
