Werner has introduced the new Extension Ladder WalkThru a ladder accessory that allows users to make an ergonomic transition area from extension ladder to roof.
The Werner Extension Ladder WalkThru allows the user to step directly from the ladder onto a roof, without stepping out to the side, bracing the transition from the roof to ladder and vice versa.
Following the debut of Werner’s GlideSafe Extension Ladder, which uses an innovative and rugged system that makes it up to 50% easier to raise and lower the ladder, the new WalkThru accessory builds on the brand’s legacy of safety and ease of use for customers.
“Those who work on rooftops know the transition from the ladder to the raised surface can be a daunting task,” said Melissa Moss, product manager – fall protection. “This fall protection accessory improves access to the rooftop and provides an ergonomic transition area from a Werner ladder to the roof.”
The Werner Extension Ladder WalkThru is built by Werner, for Werner, and designed to work seamlessly with Type II, I, IA and IAA extension ladders.
Light, strong, and easy to install without any tools, Werner’s Extension Ladder WalkThru smooths the aspects of transitioning off a ladder onto a roof or transitioning from the roof onto a ladder – even for the most experienced professional users.
The WalkThru accessory is built to work seamlessly with Werner’s industry-leading ladders to ensure a proper product fit. The rock-solid connection secures the WalkThru to a Werner extension ladder using a dual-clamping system (with 4 points of contact) to the ladder that locks onto the side rails with no tools required.
When installed on an extension ladder, the Werner WalkThru serves as a 3-foot extension above the top support for access to an elevated surface.
