Little Giant Ladder Systems 15776-001 Safeframe FG 6′
- Little giant’s unique face-forward top cap cradles the operators legs, encouraging the operator to face the front of the ladder while working rather than turning or twisting their body unsafely
- As many as 20 percent of injuries occur when the operator accidentally misses the bottom step while descending the ladder, which commonly results in severe ankle, knee, and back injuries
- The safe Frame features little giant’s patent-pending ground cue bottom rung signal. Ground cue trains the operator to feel and hear an audible alert reminding him or her it is safe to step off the ladder
- These features are designed to prevent the most common types of stepladder injuries. The safe Frame is constructed of high-strength nonconductive fiberglass and is ANSI rated to hold 375 lbs
Standing on the top rung or top cap of traditional stepladders is the leading cause of stepladder accidents and is also one of top three reasons for osha citations in construction. Operators have a tendency to select the closest and lightest option available. When they need a taller stepladder, they break osha and ANSI rules by climbing past the highest recommended step to the top rung or top cap, which is an extremely unsafe practice. We engineered the patent-pending little giant safe frame stepladder to deter operators from standing on either the top rung or top cap. The safe frame also features an extra wide standing rung to provide increased balance and stability.
