Werner adds Podium gate for ladders
Werner has begun shipping a gate accessory that surrounds those working from the top platform of its Podium ladders.
The AC63 Podium Gate is designed to provide users 360 degrees of contact when standing on the top platform of any Werner Podium Ladder. It fully surrounds the user and locks closed when standing on the top platform step keeping the user inside the ladder footprint.
The Podium gate easily swings open when ascending and descending the ladder. When not in use, the entire gate folds up for easy storage.
The Podium ladder is designed for working at fixed heights and easier to maneuver than scaffolds or lifts. The extra-large platform allows the user to feel like they are standing on the ground, with an increased work zone that encourages facing any direction.
“We’ve continued to expand our popular family of Podium Ladders, which were designed to increase the work zone allowing users to face any direction on a platform ladder,” said Brent Sedlacek, director of product management at WernerCo.
