In the 1970s, Harold “Hal” Wing, met a German painter who had an interesting idea and a primitive prototype of a new kind of ladder. Hal enhanced the ladder and engineered what is now known as the strongest, safest, most versatile ladder in the world® – the Little Giant Ladder System®. This professional-grade, multi-use ladder system can be set up in 24 different positions and is probably the most famous ladder in the world. Hal performed demonstrations of the ladder nationwide at state fairs and trade shows, building and packaging orders out of his garage. Working side-by-side with his wife Brigitte and their seven children, Hal built Little Giant Ladder Systems® on a foundation of quality and innovation. Gradually, both the do-it-yourselfers and professionals began to understand the Little Giant Ladder System was the best ladder in the world.
Innovation is at the heart of Little Giant Ladders
Little Giant engineers ladders that solve real problems. If there is something out of reach, Little Giant has a climbing solution that can help you get the job done in a fraction of the time.
“The guiding principle at the heart of all inovations developed by Little Giant Ladders, is that every rung, every rivet, and every weld matters because every person matters…”
Little Giant’s iconic non-conductive Hi-Viz Green Fiberglass is perfect for anyone working around electricity. It’s green for a reason. It’s for safety. A Hi-Viz green that’s most visible to the human eye. If you can prevent a ladder being driven or walked into…you make it safer.
Having several ladders takes up space and costs more, plus you’re more likely to use the wrong ladder. The Multi-purpose Ladders from Little Giant are designed to help you work quickly and effectively, since they can be used in multiple positions. Including stepladder, extension, staircase or 90-degree steps.
Built in response to the changes in national standards, a height adjustable, podium step that enables fast deployment, making jobs faster, safer, and less expensive than many scaffolding options.
