A good ladder can go a long way in helping you get to those difficult to reach spaces in your home. Over the years, ladders have become lighter, safer, and more functional. Furthermore, a quality ladder is designed to stand the test of time, providing stability and practicality for users climbing to the top. Ladders, of course, are not only limited to tasks around the home. Ladders, crafted in wood or other materials, can provide functional pieces of furniture for high standing bookcases, pantries, and other just out of reach places in the home.

Lightest Weight Multi-Position Ladder

The Multi-Position Pro Ladder is the lightest weight multi-position ladder developed by Werner with a 375-pound load rating per side. The new five-position ladder addresses professional users’ need for versatility by offering a lightweight product that provides stability and durability for multiple application needs.

 

“At Werner, we are committed to solving the challenges our end users face,” said Carla Ramalho Product Manager from Werner. “We developed the Multi-Position Pro Ladder to address the number one complaint from our end users – the weight of a multi-position ladder. This new design aids in the reduction of work fatigue, while providing five unique ladders in one.”

 

The Multi-Position Pro Ladder was designed with POWERLITE™ rails to decrease the weight of the ladder making it easier to load, unload and configure. End users can operate this unit as a twin stepladder, stairway stepladder, wall ladder or two scaffold bases, no additional hinges required. Be aware, plank and tie-downs are not included. The Multi-Position Pro addresses ladder weight concerns while providing stability and durability to ensure confidence under foot when climbing and descending.

The Multi-Position Pro Ladder was designed for versatility to both the professional worker and the home improvement enthusiast. The pro-grade ladder can be used on jobsites for facilities maintenance, roof inspections, painting stairways, drywall, insulation installation and more. Whereas the home improvement enthusiast can use the lightweight, five-in-one design to clean gutters, trim trees, paint and accomplish a variety of other projects. The Multi-Position Pro Ladder is OSHA and ANSI approved and available in 4 sizes: 14-feet, 18-feet, 22-feet and 26-feet.
