Werner Podium Ladder to Provide End-User Safety and Increased Range of Motion

WernerCo Introduces New Podium Ladder to Provide End-User Safety and Increased Range of Motion
Innovative Werner Ladder Provides Four Times Greater Working Range; Designed To Provide Full Range of Motion 
Greenville, PA, November 12, 2013 – WernerCo, the trusted leader in the manufacturing of professional and consumer ladders, today announces the launch of the Podium Ladder, an entirely new category of ladders designed to provide a full range of working motion to safely and comfortably access the job at hand. The new Podium ladder offers a larger standing surface providing maximum comfort and four times greater work zone than a standard Ladder which enables the user to reach all directions from one ladder position. 
“We designed our new Podium Ladder to help prevent misuse and falls,” said Mark Peters, Director of Marketing at WernerCo. “While safety is the most important feature, we also know that comfort, mobility and access are important to our customers who have to stand on a ladder for extended periods of time. The new Podium Ladder includes an actual standing platform vs. a traditional ladder step that allows for increased reach and range of motion. The best part, it feels like the user is standing on the ground instead of on a ladder.”  
Comfort, Safety and Mobility Benefits 
Through continued focus on creating safety solutions at any height, Werner has developed this entirely new Podium Ladder. One of the most significant benefits of this design is how easily it allows the user to reach traditionally difficult areas by providing greater range of motion therefore maximizing productivity. The waist high guardrail and the larger platform surface also delivers more comfort for the professional user who is often required to stand on a ladder for prolonged periods of time. 
The new Podium guardrail uses the Locktop™ design that securely and conveniently organizes tools and accessories at the top of the ladder—where they are needed. The functional top is also transformed to serve as a wraparound guardrail for total freedom of movement. The Podium Ladder also features the newly designed Edge360™ bracing system that increases the size of the ladder foot pad, braces the first step and provides protection at every angle.
