Lean, mean and hi-viz green ladders
08 February 2019
The new HyperLite SumoStance from Little Giant is claimed to be safer, stronger, and lighter than any comparable ladder on the market.
At the same time, it offers a no-quibble 5-year warranty against any manufacturing defect. TB Davies based in Cardiff is one of the first of Little Giant’s preferred global partners to make this available in Europe and is now accepting orders.
According to the company, Little Giant’s exclusive nonconductive ‘Hi-Viz’ green rail has been scientifically proven to be the most visible hue of the colour spectrum to the human eye. Some of the most catastrophic falls are caused by people who walk or drive into an extension ladder in use. People die simply because the ladder was not visible. The propriety construction delivers maximum torsional strength and is said to be lighter than most manufacturer’s lightest ordinary extension ladders.
The most common ladder accidents are caused by over-reaching, working on uneven surfaces, and stepping from the ladder to the roof and back.
The HyperLite SumoStance features Little Giant’s patented SumoStance levelling outrigger system, which more than doubles the ladder’s base width and increases side-tip stability. The SumoStance’s intuitive safety features help ensure a safe, stable set-up for any job on almost any surface and fold flat for easy transport and storage.
Ground Cue is a bottom rung signal (sensory & audible) that trains the operator to feel and hear an audible alert reminding him or her it is safe to step off the ladder.
