TB Davies welcomes the Little Giant Fortress to its extensive range of step ladders. This platform step isn’t just like any other step ladder; it’s built with the end user in mind who regularly uses platform steps to wire circuits within the ceiling of a private building or who predominately is on-site wiring commercial buildings.
The regular platform steps are fine for the occasional use, but when you’re using steps more often, you’ll know that platform step ladders are uncomfortable to work on. They usually have a small platform area where you struggle to place your feet/boots onto the platform area and don’t offer any room to adjust yourself to be more comfortable. Also, when climbing the steps/treads, which will most likely be narrow, they will dig into the sole of your boot; your feet will become numb by the end of the working day.
This is where the Little Giant Fortress comes into its own league for a platform step ladder.
Here are the main key features to make working on a platform step ladder more comfortable from Little Giant:
Unique Design: The Fortress wasn’t made to keep things out – it was designed to keep you in. Although this step has a big presence compared to the everyday platform step ladder, the 3-tread Fortresswill be similar to a 5- or 6-tread platform step ladder.
Compact for Transportation: Just like the Little Giant MightyLite Platform Step, the Fortress is made from the same narrow profile, which makes transporting the step ladder on the job site more manageable and doesn’t require as big of a storage depth due to its slimmer profile.
Simple Setup: One movement, one person, one second—that’s all you need to handle the Fortress like a pro. Just push the platform handle to deploy or pull it to fold.
The Fort of the Fortress, the Enclosed Platform: The extra-large standing platform features a gated, wraparound enclosure that shuts automatically when you step in. Wiring at height has become comfortable due to the Fortress’s large platform area, enabling you to move around confidently. Climb the step and push yourself into the gates, and once you’re all the way through, the gates will close behind you for additional safety. If you don’t want the gates to close behind you, open them into the platform area and lock them against the enclosure
Ground Cue: Show your ankles some love. 20% of ladder accidents come from missing the last step on the way down. With the Ground Cue®, putting weight on the bottom step makes an audible and tactile “click,” letting you know you’ve reached the final step of the ladder.
Innovative Tool Tray: Slots, holes, hooks, and a closable container. This versatile top cap is our best yet—plus, you can lean on it. The Fortress tool tray is one of the best tool trays ever fitted to a Little Giant step ladder. It will hold all the tools and fixings you need to get your job done
