Extension Ladder

Werner announces an easy-operating extension ladder with a breakthrough innovation: a patent-pending lift assist technology that helps the end user comfortably raise and lower the ladder’s fly section. The Werner Glidesafe™ Extension Ladder is the only ladder on the market with Werner’s patent-pending Lift-Assist Technology, which provides up to 50% assistance to raise the ladder in addition to speed-controlled lowering. (Percentage of assist can vary by ladder size, friction between siderails and variation on lift assist technology, compared to Werner D6200 300lbs fiberglass extension ladder.)


This technology makes the Glidesafe the only extension ladder of its kind. The internal spring mechanism operates similar to a garage door system providing assistance to raise it. As the user pulls the internal lift cable, the spring releases tension and helps lift the extension ladder’s fly section with less effort required. When the fly section is lowered, it reloads tension on the spring, providing resistance that keeps the ladder’s fly section from slamming to the ground.


Multiple features help keep the ladder locked in place when it is not in use. A built-in auto-lock automatically engages when the extension ladder is fully collapsed. A yellow tab must be pressed to unlock the ladder and allow it to extend. Additional heavy-duty locks keep the Glidesafe secure and stable when it is extended during use.


Available in 6 sizes ranging from 20' to 40', each Glidesafe extension ladder is rated for a 300-lb load capacity.
