High Quality Unique Ladders Exceed Expectations
In Light Construction and Industrial Work
Springville, Utah, November 7, 2010 – Little Giant Ladder Systems®
(www.littlegiantladders.com), makers of the original multi-use ladder, is showcasing its
patent-pending MicroBurst™, Lunar™, and SumoStance™ ladder innovations at the
Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association (STAFDA) convention and trade
show, November 7-9 (booth 422-424). STAFDA houses receive high margins with new
high quality ladders built for light construction and industrial work.
“Innovation matters to the STAFDA customer,” said H. Arthur Wing, President, “and that
is exactly what we’re unveiling at this year’s STAFDA trade show. We’re bringing things
to STAFDA that no one has even seen in the big boxes. We understand some of the
challenges that STAFDA distributors face, and we believe our unmatched profit
margins, web-friendly drop-ship programs, and pro-centered innovations can turn those
challenges into opportunities.”
MicroBurst, the only stepladder in the world with Little Giant’s new Fold-Flat™ and
StableLock™ technologies, folds to a sleek 3 ! inches, nearly half the width of
traditional stepladders, making it more stable and easier to store and carry than ordinary
stepladders. The 4-, 6-, and 8-foot fiberglass MicroBurst ladders meet and exceed all
OSHA and ANSI standards. In addition:
• The StableLock™ spreader system constructed of a high-strength steel alloy
creates a solid A-frame structure that virtually eliminates unwanted shifting or
• The MicroBurst’s extra-wide stance offers increased lateral stability and security.
• The specially formulated and nonconductive black fiberglass resin composite
resists ultra-violet damage.
The Lunar extension ladder by Little Giant Ladder Systems is the lightest industrial
rated non-conductive fiberglass ladder in the world. The AirTruss rails are constructed
with a new, cutting-edge fiberglass resin composite that is lighter, stronger, and more
UV-resistant than any other material on the market. It’s not only easier and faster to
use, it lasts longer than ordinary fiberglass extension ladders.
SumoStance innovations deliver safety to working professionals. All construction and
industrial workers constantly deal with hazards like sloping sidewalks, uneven ground
and ungraded new construction sites. By tripling the base width of ordinary extension
ladders and increasing side-tip stability by over 500%, SumoStance has created a new
category of extension ladders that work on nearly any uneven surface. Patent-pending
• Adjustable outriggers: SumoStance outriggers extend the base width by more
than 18 inches on each side, resulting in a base that is three times wider than
ordinary extension ladders.
• Level and tilt indicators: A side-to-side level and front-to-back angle indicator
helps to ensure a safe ladder setup every time.
“Little Giant understands the value of our STAFDA partners and the unique needs of
their customers,” said Ryan Moss, CEO. “That is why we’re bringing these categorychanging
innovations to the STAFDA market first. These products will not only increase
speed and reduce fatigue for contractor professionals, they will also reduce the massive
cost of injuries common to using ordinary, traditional ladders. And we are ready to
support these exclusive innovations with marketing and fulfillment programs to make
sure they are a success. Little Giant Ladder Systems will continue to buck the trend of
commoditization in our industry.”
