Werner “Rolls-Out” New Heavy-Duty Podium Ladders with Casters

May 19, 2015

Innovative Ladder Style Now Available with Casters;
Enhanced Mobility Provides Improved Productivity and Comfort

Greenville, PA, May 19, 2015 – Werner, the trusted leader in the manufacturing of professional and consumer ladders, announces the introduction of Podium ladders with casters. The Podium is a new style of ladder that allows the user to work facing any direction and is now available with factory installed casters. With the addition of casters, the Podium ladder is easier to move around the jobsite to further improve productivity.

“With the successful launch of the new Podium style last year Werner has expanded on the product line by adding functionality that matters most to our professional contractor audience,” said John Werner, Senior Product Manager at WernerCo. “Mobility is important in the construction industry as increased productivity creates efficiencies on large-scale projects and ensures timely completion.”

The factory installed casters are spring loaded to deactivate automatically when the ladder is in use. Casters are now available on the 375 lb Type IAA and the 300 lb Type lA ladders and are a great solution for stocking and warehouse applications.

In addition to the convenient mobility, these Podium ladders still offer all of the benefits of the original products with an extra-large platform for all day comfort requiring fewer trips down the ladder for repositioning.  The 36” extended guardrail securely wraps around the work zone and the LOCKTOP secures an arsenal of tools where they are needed at the top of the ladder. It is also compatible with the Lock-in System, which expands the functionality when additional accessories are added. Furthermore, the Edge360 bracing provides improved durability with an integrated rail shield and over-sized foot pad that provides expanded stability once the casters are deactivated.

The new Podium ladders with casters are available in a variety of reach heights from 9’ – 16’. For more information on the entire family of Podium ladders, visit
