The King Kombo Ladder is proving to be very popular with tradespeople and engineers, with hugely positive feedback on its innovation and design. Its 3-In-1 multi-use allows you to use this Ladder in a step ladder, leaning ladder and extended ladder, giving you the flexibility to work your way in absolute safety.
We’ve all seen people using step ladders in the closed position against a wall, however, they are rarely designed for this. Using a step in this way leads to the impromptu ladder being unstable, slipping easily against the wall with bare metal providing zero grip. This all too frequently leads to accidents which can range from minor injuries to tragic instances of people losing their lives at work; don’t forget that falls from at height still remain the biggest killer in the workplace today.
This is why the novel innovations engineered directly into the King Kombo stepladder are proving so popular. Rather than trying to change the way people use steps, we decided to build and engineer the leaning position into the King Kombo. Inclusion of the “Rotating Wall Pad’ provides a unique rubber grip that allows the user to safely lean the Ladder against any wall surface without leaving marks. Further, due to the ingenious rotating mechanism, the user is able safely and securely position the stepladder inside or outside wall corners, and also directly onto an upright such as a stud wall timber.
How many people do you know who have fallen from the bottom tread of a stepladder? Or more likely, from the second tread when mistakenly thinking they were at the bottom? A further feature designed into the King Kombo is called the “Ground Cue”, and gives the user tactile and auditory feedback that they are now on the bottom tread. This helps to cut down on those minor accidents that keep people away from work, and is just one more safety feature engineered into the step.
The key to product innovation is in listening to the end user, and identifying areas where safety and usability can be improved. This is the reason why the King Kombo is increasingly being recognised as a ground breaking new product, with a number of awards from safety and insurance organisations already in the bag. The below features of the King Kombo all combine to keep your team working at height, and getting them home safe and healthy at the end of a busy working week:
Step Ladder: The base of the stepladder features wide flared legs for sturdy climbing, whilst the rear section of the step is narrow enough to fit between stud walls. This will allow you to work closer and more securely to the job at hand. With the “Rotating Wall Pad” you can also work in and around corners more safely than ever before.
Leaning Ladder: The King Kombo is an EN131 Professional compliant leaning ladder. Safely lean your ladder so that you can get closer to your work, safe in the knowledge that the rubber grip pad has been designed and tested for maximum stability.
Extension Ladder: By pushing the two orange palm buttons on the side of the step, you can further extend the back section to form an extended ladder, giving you the flexibility for a far greater number of tasks than a traditional stepladder.
Rotating Wall Pad – This unique feature is truly the crown jewel of the King Kombo. You can now safely set up your Ladder on the inside or outside corners, walls and studs easily, and it is available in the unextended leaning position.
Incorporated V Bar: This feature issituated on the narrow rear section of the Extension Ladder and can be used in the raised position allowing the user to work from an extended ladder on walls, corners or poles safely.
Hi-Viz Green: One of the most visual features of the product is that the King Kombo is Hi-Viz Green, and for a good reason. The step is highly visible on the job site, reducing the chance of people inadvertently colliding with the equipment when in use.
Ground Cue: Situated on the first tread, we have incorporated a feature called the “Ground Cue’; this bright orange bar provides the user with auditory and tactile feedback, providing a loud “click” that tells the user that they are now on the bottom tread. This feature has been replicated across multiple Little Giant Ladder ranges because many so many ladder related injuries occur when the user steps down from the second tread in error. This frequently results in a fall of a few feet to the floor, with an all too common ankle sprain or broken bone at best.
Keep your team, safe, happy and in work with the King Kombo stepladder today.
