WernerCo has launched a new soft close telescopic extension ladder, the latest solution in its extensive telescopic range.  

With a maximum load capacity of 150kg and a new design that ensures a smooth retraction and prevents finger trapping, this telescopic ladder offers a safe solution that is ideal for users on the go. 

The 850 series is available in lengths of 2.6m and 2.9m, allowing a safe working from height of up to 3.15m and 3.42m. Safety features include colour-coded lock indicators which make it easy for users to see when the ladder is set up correctly, while the automatic locking mechanism provides extra security in use.  

For stability when working and to protect against damage, the telescopic ladder features slip-resistant rungs, safety grip wall bumpers and a moulded foot brace. Additionally, the non-marking feet protectors prevent floor damage when working indoors. 

Jamie Brassington, Product Manager at WernerCo, said: ‘The new soft close telescopic ladders really offer the smoothest retraction and are a great option for tradesmen and homeowners alike. Thanks to the intuitive safety features and compact design, those working in the trade are able to equip themselves with a solution that will not only prevent against accidents when working at height, but can also be conveniently transported with other tools and equipment."
