Reach height is determined, where you safely stand on the ladder, assuming a 5'6" person with a 12" vertical reach.
The podium ladder is made of aluminum steps and fiberglass rails, with a hard plastic LOCK TOP.
This "12-ft reach height" podium ladder length is 9 feet long. To answer the question, the ladder length in the closed position laying flat on the ground is 9 feet long. I like the Werner podium style ladders. I have several of these in different heights. However, their specs are not clear. I had the same question as this person before purchasing, I could not figure out the total length of the ladder. Werner customer service was no help, as they were reading the info available online.
just a hammer - anything else that you need to do you can do with your teeth and claws
I was able to order mine online for store pickup with no problem. it came in sooner than projected by the website.
Your feet on the platform or at 10 feet. Is a good size platform. The additional reach come from your height and hand out reach over head.
Platform is 46” above floor. Works well for me 5’7” and 10ft ceilings
I found out it internet order only. But you can have it shipped to the store no charge. That's what I did.
It’s the length of the ladder - almost 9 feet.
My ladder is stored stored upright against shelving, perpendicular to the floor. It stands 85 inches tall, 20.125 inches wide, and 8.5 inches deep at the top (has a tool tray) and 6 inches deep at the bottom
