Introduction

Product Overview

The followings are the unique features for the Tripod Ladder System.

SAFETY:

The system is the safest ladder in its class. The wide support base provides stability that is unparalleled by any other stepladders.

The Safety belt would allow hand free operations and provides additional protection in case you are out of balanced positions.

CAPABILITY:

The system can provide higher elevations than any other stepladders available for general consumers. It is perfect for those who has a high ceiling house.

VERSATILITY:

The Fly Section of the system can be used independently without the extension members. It is lighter weight for low elevation applications.

The 3 independently adjustable LEGS can be used on uneven surfaces.

The feature is convenient for outdoor applications.

Also the system can be adjusted to use for against-wall applications. It is safer than using a traditional extension ladder.

CONVENIENCE:

Relatively small package size and light weight for ease of storage and transportation.

Since the system can perform as high/low stepladders and replace extension ladders, home owners would not need multiple ladders.

The system can be operated by one person without safety concerns.
