NEW GLIDESAFE™ Easy Operating Extension Ladder – Full Performance, Half the Effort. Werner announces the launch of the GLIDESAFE easy operating extension ladder, a breakthrough innovation that is revolutionizing the extension ladder category with its patent-pending lift assist technology that helps users comfortably raise and lower the ladder’s fly section.

The new Werner GLIDESAFE™ is the only extension ladder of its kind to feature Lift Assist Technology, which makes it up to 50% easier to extend versus a traditional extension ladder. This helps eliminate user back and arm strain, but the innovation doesn’t stop there! The new extension ladder also has built-in lowering assist to help ensure a smooth, easy descent while preventing slamming and rope burns. Available in six sizes ranging from 20 to 40 feet, GLIDESAFE is constructed with non-conductive rails and has a duty rating of 300 lbs.

Built with safety in mind, GLIDESAFE features a dual locking system to help mitigate ladder extension during transport and features exclusive Alflo™ rung joint for a Twist-Proof performance on the job. This new ladder was designed to make users’ lives easier.
