Werner new products to work safely

Werner, the leader in ladders and manufacturer of climbing products and fall protection equipment, has introduced the new Podium+ Type 1A  ladder with a 300-lb load capacity. Designed for electricians, HVAC, general contractors and residential construction projects, the new Podium+ provides a large 360-degree platform and all the other benefits of the Werner Podium ladder in a lighter weight and compact size. Werner’s portfolio includes ladders, scaffolding, pump jacks, stages, planks, accessories and fall protection equipment including harnesses, lanyards, anchors and compliance kits.

Ideal for safely and comfortably working at a fixed height and in any direction, the lighter weight of the new Podium+ makes it easy to set up and manoeuvre in tight spots. The contoured guardrail provides an added layer of stability for the user by providing a wraparound cradle at waist-height. And the Podium+ features a newly redesigned top for maximum productivity and safety with ten unique design features to hold tools for multiple application needs.

"We've continued to expand the Podium product line because of the ease of use. While being lighter weight than other Podium ladders, it still has a large 15"x18.5" work platform and an upgraded wraparound LOCKTOP increases storage and workspace at the top of ladder," said Diana Arshin, Sr. Product Manager at WernerCo. "The introduction of the new Podium+ provides our users with the best balance of safety, size and cost for the most diverse application needs."

The Podium+ complements the existing family of Podium fiberglass ladders. For more information, visit www.wernerpodium.com.
