Werner Introduces Multi-Position Fiberglass Pro Ladder

Oct 01, 2018 --    

 New Model Features Innovative Five-In-One Ladder Design for Versatility on the Jobsite; Provides Savings of $1,300 Based on Variety of Multi-Position Ladder Configurations


Greenville, PA, October 1, 2018
– Werner, the world leader in ladders and manufacturer of a complete line of climbing products and fall protection equipment, introduces the Multi-Position Fiberglass Pro Ladder. This new multi-position ladder offers professionals the use of five different ladder configurations in one compact design to easily conquer any task on the jobsite. At an affordable price point of $319-$519[1], the combination of multiple ladder configurations into one durable unit provides customers a potential savings of $1,300[2].

“At Werner, we know professionals need performance, durability and multi-position ladders, tools and equipment,” said Chris Filiardi, VP of Marketing at WernerCo. “Since no day is ever the same, we created the multi-position fiberglass pro ladder to suit a range of jobsite needs – from working in stairwells to hanging conduit to working on ceilings in open spaces. The bright orange color of the ladder also makes it visible and easy to locate on the work site.”


Five-in-One Ladder: For Every Jobsite Need

The ladder touts an innovative five-in-one design that provides stability for a diverse array of jobsite needs and reduces the need to bring and haul multiple ladders to the jobsite. Professionals can utilize the unit as an extension ladder, a wall ladder, a twin stepladder or stairway stepladder, and can employ its rungs as a stable scaffold base that requires no additional hinges. The multi-position ladder, whose extension reaches 11, 15 and 19 feet depending on model number, easily folds into a compact ladder that can be carried through tight corridors and placed into most vehicles without the need of a ladder rack. 

Additional features of the Fiberglass Multi-Position Ladder include:

  • Professional Performance Rating System signifies this product is ideal for professionals who require a specific load capacity and construction features.
  • Non-conductive side rails for working with or near electricity.
  • Impact-resistant push knobs and shatter-proof J-locks for extra durability.
  • Double riveted rungs for heavy-duty strength and load capacity.
  • Slip resistant feet for safety in all weather conditions.
  • Type 1A, 300 lb. rating for support in every jobsite task.

The twist-proof multi-position ladder is available in three different models based on the size and reach of the ladder. All 3 models have the same weight capacity, along with the ability to convert to a stepladder, stairway, wall, and extension ladders as well as two scaffold bases. The ladder is both OSHA and ANSI approved and is made of durable fiberglass, the preferred material of most jobsite employers due to its strength, resistance to high temperatures, anti-corrosive qualities, and non-conductive abilities.

The Multi-Position Fiberglass Ladder is available now. For more information, visit the Werner Ladder website

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 reach 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.

Performance system
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.
