Duty Ratings

Featherlite Ladders are stringently tested to conform where applicable to the requirements of the Canadians Standards Association (CSA), and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The appropriate rating is achieved through an extensive series of test required by the various standards.

When selecting the duty rating adequate for your needs you MUST allow for the combined effect of: the weight of the user, equipment, and materials; and, any forces that may be imparted to the ladder while working from it.
