Erie Industrial Products Co. Unveils Ladder Guard for Safety and Security
(Westchester, IL) May 15, 2002 -- Erie Industrial introduced a patented product called the "Erie Ladder Guard", a product designed to help prevent unauthorized use of unattended ladders. Unattended ladders are dangerous attractions for young children who cannot appreciate the dangers inherent in climbing unattended ladders. The Erie Ladder Guard is an alternative to breaking down ladders and scaffolding every single time a contractor leaves a job site. Compared with the cost of breaking down the ladder and scaffolding project, the ladder guard will pay for itself in one or two jobs. The ladder guard is a rugged self-contained unit that is easy to use and installs in seconds. It has a locking device that can be secured with a padlock (not provided) which prevents the lowering of the upper section of the extension ladder. The ladder guard, while promoting safety, is also anti-theft, in that a thief would have to steal the extension ladder in its extended form once the ladder guard is locked in place. Key Erie Ladder Guard features include: - Long lasting aluminum construction: measures 2" x 19" x 71.9"
- Fits 95% of all standard and extension ladders
- Louvered design provides strength and reduces effect of wind
- travels on the ladder
