SPRINGVILLE, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Little Giant Ladder Systems® (www.littlegiantladders.com), maker of the original articulating ladder, is raising the industry bar for ladder safety standards with its innovative new Combo SXE™ combination and Lunar™ extension ladders.

“Little Giant continues to enhance its product line of fiberglass ladders with groundbreaking safety features to address the risks that working professionals often face,” said Ryan Moss, CEO, Little Giant Ladder Systems and Vice President of the American Ladder Institute. “The new Combo SXE and Lunar ladder designs feature a significant reduction in weight, as well as increased versatility features that not only make them easy to use, but also significantly minimizes the possibility for injuries, particularly debilitating shoulder and back injuries from handling much heavier traditional ladders.

We are pleased to partner with Little Giant Ladder Systems to provide our technicians these new fiberglass ladders that help prevent workplace injuries, and ensure more secure work environments across our service areas.”
The Little Giant Combo SXE™ combination ladder delivers safety to working professionals by combining the versatility and safety of the original Little Giant Ladder System with the ability to work as both a 13-foot extension ladder and a multi-height stepladder that works on uneven surfaces, even stairs. Additionally, the Combo SXE features:
- Easy-to-use, patented Rock Locks™ for easy telescopic adjustment.
- Smooth, strong Triple-Lock Hinge™ for adjustment from storage to stepladder to extension.
- Sturdy balance bar at the top of the ladder for an unmatched feeling of stability.
The Lunar extension ladder is the lightest industrial-grade fiberglass extension ladder in the world—up to 25% lighter than ordinary extension ladders. The Lunar includes Little Giant’s exclusive side-mounted double pulley system, which reduces the force needed to extend the fly section by half. The Lunar extension also features:
- Little Giant’s exclusive LiteWave™ fiberglass rail technology, which results in significant weight reduction with industrial strength and durability.
- Safe lean angle indicator to ensure safe setup every time.
- Red “Do Not Climb” rungs at the top and optional cable hooks and pole grips for safer operation.
