Safety Cage 2.0
It’s not a ladder, it’s the Little Giant® Safety Cage®. With the Cage, you can access workspaces that would typically require tying-off, scaffolding or lifts, all with less time and labor than other climbing solutions. The Cage has a comfortable standing surface with a fully enclosed toe kick and wraparound enclosure, making it faster, safer and less expensive than many scaffolding or lift options. Plus, because you can work hands-free, the Safety Cage is perfect for jobs like maintaining large HVAC equipment or installing stage lighting.
Stable, Fully Enclosed Climbing Solution
Many industries require professionals to tie off at an anchor point when working at certain heights. This standard helps keep people safe, but it can be a difficult standard to maintain.
The OSHA-compliant Safety Cage eliminates the need to tie-off, helping you get your work done quickly. With adjustable outriggers*, the Cage has increased side-tip stability, making it the ideal climbing alternative for the job site.
With Ground Cue®, you can descend the ladder with confidence. Ground Cue is Little Giant’s integrated bottom rung alert system. Upon stepping on the bottom rung, Ground Cue makes an audible “click” that you can hear and feel, letting you know that you have safely reached the bottom of the Cage.
Easy to Use, Store and Carry
The Safety Cage can be set up and taken down with just one person, and with its compact folding capabilities, storage is easy. The Cage features Tip & Glide™ Wheels, which lighten the load as you transport the Cage. With the Cage’s caster wheel lift, you can roll the ladder from place to place, even while the Cage is fully deployed.
Non-Conductive, Hi-Viz Green Fiberglass
You need climbing equipment you can count on. Little Giant’s fiberglass is lightweight and durable, allowing you to work around electricity without fear of conductivity. The Cage is made with Little Giant’s iconic Hi-Viz green fiberglass, which promotes increased visibility and serves to decrease accidental bumping.
The Safety Cage meets or exceeds all OSHA and ANSI standards and is rated Type IAA to hold 375 lbs. and the 10’ Safety Cage is rated Type IA to hold 300 lbs.

What’s the difference between model size and extension height?
You may have noticed that our model sizing is taller than the actual extension height of any telescoping Little Giant ladder. This is due to the requirements of US ladder standards, published by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI): A14.2 for aluminum ladders and A14.5 for fiberglass ladders. These standards dictate that ladder model size should be displayed as the total rail length of each section of a ladder. All US manufacturers use the same sizing system in order to comply with ANSI. Extension ladders, articulating ladders and other multipurpose ladders often have multiple sections, so the ANSI-compliant size is the sum of the lengths of each section, not the actual maximum extended height. Please refer to the individual ladder’s instruction manual for details on maximum working length, highest standing level and maximum reach. We’ve described a few of these measurements in detail below.
What is maximum working length?
The final locks on any telescoping ladder sections will adhere to ANSI requirements, meaning there will be an appropriately sized overlap between inner and outer railing when fully extended. The maximum working length is the length of the ladder at its final locked extension length.
What is highest standing level?
Depending on the ladder and configuration, ANSI standards dictate that certain rungs (such as the ladder top cap or top step of an A-frame ladder) should not be used as a step. The highest standing level takes those standards into consideration and measures the highest ANSI-approved standing rung when the ladder is extended to maximum working length.
What is maximum reach?
Maximum reach (or “max reach”) is the combination of the ladder’s highest standing level and a common user’s reach height. The reach height addition is based on a 5'6" [1.68 m] person with a 12" [30 cm] vertical reach. The term is used in ladder merchandising throughout the climbing solutions industry to help users quickly comprehend which projects are compatible with which ladders.
