Little Giant Hyperlite Ladder Details
Offering an extremely lightweight design, the Little Giant Hyperlite ladder was designed to help reduce ladder-related injuries. With its patent-pending design, the ladder weighs up to 40% less than the leading competitor’s standard fiberglass ladder. Yet, despite the ladder’s lightweight, this model offers exceptional strength and stability.
Extension ladders have a reputation for being so heavy that they cause weight-related injuries to those who use them. Common injuries related to the use of heavy extension ladders include ankle sprains, torn rotator cuffs, herniated disks and torn knee ligaments. The lightweight design of this ladder helps to prevent these injuries, while the patent-pending Sure-Set foot system allows the feet of the ladder to be placed in either a flat or spiked position in order to ensure the ladder remains safely in place.

Lifting the fly section of an extension ladder can require a great deal of effort. This particular model, however, features a unique side-mounted, dual-pulley system that helps to reduce effort by 45 percent. As an added bonus, this system helps to remove the potential trip hazards that are caused by traditional center pulley rope systems.
With its wide rungs, this model helps to increase user comfort by reducing foot fatigue. The ladder also features the Little Giant exclusive nonconductive Hi-Viz green rail, which has been scientifically proven to be the most visible color in the world. Using this color on the ladder helps to ensure it is seen by passersby, which helps to reduce the risk of someone walking into the ladder or driving into it while it is in use.
The Little Giant Hyperlite is available in 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36 and 40-foot lengths with a heavy-duty Type 1A rating for up to 300 pounds and in 16, 20, 24, 28 and 32-foot lengths for the special duty Type 1AA rating for up to 375 pounds.
