WernerCo Develops Lightweight Performance Extension Ladders for Commercial and Telecom Professionals

New Werner Ladder Designed to Improve Mobility and Worker Efficiency; Up to 12% Lighter Weight than Standard Extension Ladders

GREENVILLE, Pa. -- WernerCo, the trusted leader in the manufacturing of professional and consumer ladders, today introduced Lightweight Performance (LP) Extension Ladders, lighter-weight construction designed to minimize the risk of injury from lifting or transporting heavy ladders. Werner products are continually recognized for their durability, quality and safety as well as meeting or exceeding national safety standards. The new Lightweight Performance Extension Ladders are built to the same high quality Werner standards but improved to deliver lightweight performance without compromising strength and structural integrity.

"With our telecom professional tradesmen in mind, we have developed some of the lightest extension ladders on the market delivering top of the line performance," said Chris Filardi, Vice President of Marketing for WernerCo. "The LP ladders are up to 12% lighter weight to allow the professional to focus their energy on the job at hand and to reduce overall worker fatigue on the jobsite."

Reduced User Fatigue; Better Mobility Leads to Greater Efficiency

From accessing high-mount cables to running wiring through commercial buildings, extension ladders are a requirement for many professional and heavy-duty home improvement projects. When extended reach is needed--for rooftops or utility poles--the extension ladder handles a wide range of tasks and is available in a variety of heights and materials.

The new Werner Lightweight Performance Extension Ladders are designed to improve set-up, mobility and worker efficiency. These lightweight performance ladders minimize the risk of injury when a job requires working with or transporting fiberglass extension ladders. These new ladders are designed to have the benefits of less weight without compromising the performance that end users expect from Werner. The new Werner Lightweight Performance Extension Ladders offer ALFLO Twist-Proof(®) performance, features D-rungs on every step and more durable feet than other lightweight brands.  The new LP ladders provide superior performance and reliability versus the competition.

The LP ladders will be available through national retailers and distributors beginning in December. For more information, please visit http://us.wernerco.com/.
