Projects requiring the use of a stepladder can be completed much more safely and quickly with Werner’s PDIA04 Type IA podium ladder. Its standing surface is four times greater than that of a typical stepladder, enabling you to face any direction so you can accomplish more without having to take time out to reposition the ladder.
This 4 ft. stepladder has the same reach as a 6 ft. stepladder and features a HolsterTop PRO extended guardrail, which securely wraps around the work zone and gives you an extra point of contact. As an added bonus, it has compartments for your accessories and holsters for your tools for organization and easy access.
The newly designed Edge360 bracing system increases the size of the ladder foot pad, braces the first step and provides protection. This ladder has a plethora of other safety features, as well. Double riveted, slip-resistant TRACTION TRED steps let you stand and climb with confidence. There is also a full set of rear horizontals spaced one per foot. All steps and two of the rear horizontals are knee braced, and backup plates reinforce all top connectors.
With a Type IA Duty Rating and a 300 lb. load capacity, this 4 ft. stepladder promises serious performance in addition to the comfort of its extra-large platform with toe guard. With this much security and roominess, you’ll feel like you’re standing on the ground.
