Little Giant Ladder Systems has unveiled the SafeFrame stepladder designed to address the three leading causes of ladder accidents: the user standing on the top run or top cap; the user missing the bottom step when descending from a ladder; and the user working on unlevelled surfaces. The SafeFrame eliminates the top rung, preventing the unsafe practices of standing on the top rung or accessing the top cap. The SafeFrame also features an extra deep standing rung and Little Giant’s new Face-Forward top cap to encourage operators to use the ladder correctly and to provide increased balance and stability. The Ground Cue bottom rung indicator provides an audible and tactile cue that signals to the operator it is safe to transition to the ground. It will train the user to feel and hear an audible alert reminding him that it is safe to dismount the ladder. An integrated quad leg levelling system easily adjusts the SafeFrame to nearly any unlevelled surface, which provides unmatched stability on unlevelled terrain. The levellers are extremely quick and easy to operate and adjust hands-free in seconds, providing security and stability on nearly any surface. The ladder is ANSI rated to hold 375 pounds.
