This is an A-frame aluminum stepladder.
Werner has been manufacturing and distributing ladders for over 60 years. They are the leading provider of a complete line of climbing equipment in the United States.
Built with Werner’s patented EDGE (Energy Diffusing Geometry) braces this ladder provides strength and stability for weights up to 300 pounds. It also possesses slip resistant Traction- Tred Steps that are double riveted and heavy duty internal spreaders to add to its overall stability.
“The Werner fibreglass stepladder is the finest quality ladder I have ever seen or used. The construction is incredibly strong everywhere. When the ladder is folded in position, it is very secure and will not move. I feel very secure working off of my new ladder.”
Werner made this ladder with the user in mind. At its top is their patented Holster Top which is designed to save the user from having to take many trips up and down the ladder to retrieve tools or pick up ones that have fallen.
“Love the tool holding features on top — a place to hold screwdrivers, chisels, hammer, drill or anything round, small trays for nails, screws, nail punch, etc.; even a slot to hold the tape measure; saves me many trips up and down the ladder.”
This ladder is built to give those who work around electrical wiring some piece of mind. Its heavy duty fibreglass rails are made to be non conductive. Aluminum ladders are not to be used for electrical work as they are conductive.
“It shipped far more quickly than anticipated so I have no complaints there. Since its fibreglass with 300lb rating there is no need for us to worry about electrical or being too heavy for the ladder.”

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“This is especially a great ladder for use _inside_ the house. The sturdy high-impact plastic molded top is better (in my opinion) than a metal top, because if you bump walls or furniture while carrying the ladder, you’re a lot less likely to cause damage. In addition, the thing is well-built and extremely durable. By the way, I do recommend adding the Werner “pail shelf”, as that enhances the ladder’s usefulness.”
“The ladder works well and is all I had hoped for. My only disappointment was when I saw…”
