Werner Releases Full Line of Innovative Podium Ladders in Canada

Available for Both Professional Contractors and DIY Enthusiasts

RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, Sept. 21, 2015 /CNW/ -- Werner, the world leader in the manufacturing of professional and consumer ladders, announces the availability of a complete line of Podium Ladders for the Canadian market. The Podium is the newest style of ladders designed for greater comfort and mobility than standard stepladders. Werner has introduced five unique series of Werner Podium models with enough options to suit any contractor job or home project.

"Werner is continually innovating our product line to make projects easier for construction workers and homeowners alike. The greatest benefit of the Podium design is the ability to face any direction while working, making most jobs easier and more efficient," said John Werner, Senior Product Manager at Werner Co.

Increased Range of Motion and Improved Comfort

All Werner Podium Ladders feature an extra-large standing platform for added comfort when standing at a fixed height for an extended period of time. Furthermore, the guardrail provides an extra point of contact which, in combination with the platform, enables the user to face any direction while working. The Podium Ladders were developed with comfort and accessibility for the user in mind. The Podium guardrail also securely and conveniently organizes tools and accessories at the top of the ladder—where they are needed.

The entire family of Werner Podium Ladders offer the following features and benefits:

  • Waist-High Guard Rail: The extended guard rail wraps around the user for more security and freedom of movement, while providing the ability to work from any direction.
  • Podium Platform: Extra-large platform for all-day comfort, feels like you are standing on the ground.
  • Edge360™ Bracing System: The system provides improved stability and drop-protection with over-sized boots and footpads at the base of the ladder.
  • Customized Ladder Top: With the new ladder top functionality, users can secure an arsenal of tools and accessories that are compatible with the Lock-In Accessory System.

The full Podium Ladder product line includes:

  • Podium PD7300 CA: This Type 1AA heavy-duty ladder has a load capacity of 375 lbs and comes with optional factory installed casters for added mobility. For professional users, the increased duty rating allows for more industrial applications that require heavier tools or equipment.
