Little Giant Ladders made a special announcement today at the National Safety Council & Expo in Houston, and I wanted to make sure I shared it with you.

The King Kombo, the ladder set to kill the traditional stepladder, is constructed of nonconductive, high-strength, lightweight fiberglass and is a fully articulating combination ladder. It is a true 3-in-1 ladder—the only one of its kind. Even though it is cost-competitive with an ordinary stepladder, the King Kombo works as a 375 lb-rated stepladder, a wide-base extension ladder, and a lean-to ladder, that also serves as an attic-access ladder and a lightweight, versatile framing ladder.

Its straight side allows operators to access tight workspaces between wall studs or ceiling trusses and roof or attic access ports. The King Kombo meets or exceeds all OSHA and ANSI Type IAA 375-lbs standards for combination, extension and A-frame stepladders.

If you’re in Houston for NSC, stop by booth #1635 to see the ladder in person and to visit me and the rest of the Little Giant team. We’ll be here until the end of the show on Wednesday!
