“For years traditional stepladders have been bulky and awkward,” said H. Arthur Wing,
President. “The problems consumers have always had with ordinary stepladders are no
longer an issue with the new MicroBurst stepladder. MicroBurst’s safety, stability,
comfort and sleek size make any job easier for electricians, contractors, A/V installers
and any working professional or homeowner who uses a ladder.”
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 MicroBurst ladder has created an entirely new category of stepladders,” said Ryan
Moss, CEO. “It changes the landscape, and it again strengthens our position as the
innovation leader in the ladder industry. Not only is the MicroBurst bringing added
convenience and safety to our customers, it is extending Little Giant Ladder Systems
