Ladders feature lift-assist

Werner Glidesafe Ladder Oct21 1111

Werner Co.’s GLIDESAFE extension ladder has lift-assist via an internal spring mechanism that operates similar to a garage door. As a user pulls an internal lift cable, a spring releases tension and helps lift the extension ladder’s fly section. 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.
