Little Giant Ladders Recognized by Liberty Mutual Insurance and the CPWR

Springville, Utah, June 25, 2020 –Little Giant Ladder Systems®, the leader in ladder safety and innovation, received a safety and innovation award from The Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR) and Liberty Mutual insurance for the King Kombo Industrial ladder, the most recent award for the top awarded ladder in the industry.

“We are grateful to Liberty Mutual and the CPWR to be recognized for our commitment to preventing injuries and saving lives,” said Ryan Moss, CEO. “It is our honor to have the King Kombo 3-in-1 ladder be recognized for safety and innovation.”

The King Kombo is helping tradespeople around the world, and it is receiving recognition for its versatility. In addition to this award from Liberty Mutual Insurance and the CPWR, the King Kombo has received a number of other awards, including the SAFE Award from the National Association of Home Builders and Builders Mutual Insurance, New Product of the Year from Occupational Health & Safety Magazine and the Pro Tool Innovation Award from Pro Tool Reviews. The awards for the King Kombo make this ladder the most awarded ladder on the market.

“It is truly a great innovation,” said George Brogmus, Technical Director at Liberty Mutual Insurance and one of the members of the awards committee. “It impacts the number one cause of injuries in the construction industry – falls from elevation, while being an innovation that is accessible even to the smallest contractor.”

Little Giant and the CPWR plan to use the reward money to further research on ladder safety and to develop better ladder testing. The improved ladder testing will ultimately determine which ladder design features make a ladder safer than other ladders. The CPWR also plans to work with an engineering college to determine the test parameters. The test and results will then be submitted to NIOSH for further research.

The King Kombo is the pinnacle of ladder technology and its features help you work safer and easier.

The King Kombo is a 3-in-1 multi-position ladder that converts to A-frame, extension and leaning configurations. The Rotating Wall Pad allows you to safely set up your ladder on inside and outside corners, on walls, poles and studs. Additionally, the wide-flared legs allow for increased side-tip stability and the functional rear section fits between studs to allow you to access tight workspaces like wall studs, ceiling trusses, roof or attic access ports. The King Kombo is made from lightweight, durable fiberglass in the iconic Hi-Viz Green to increase visibility. The Ground Cue® bottom rung alert system lets you know when you’ve reached the bottom rung. The V-Bar grips outside corners, walls, poles and studs when the ladder is in the extension position. The King Kombo has a Type IAA rating for 375 lbs., so it can hold all the equipment for any task.
