The Werner 16’ Compact Extension Ladder has three 6’ sections, rather than two, to make for easy transport and use indoors or at lower heights that standard extension ladders.

The Werner Compact Extension ladder has a 225 pound load capacity and is available at The Home Depot. Watch this video to find out more.

Jodi Marks: You know, I can’t think of too many home-improvement projects where I didn’t need one ladder or sometimes two. And, you know, having that many ladders around the house can be a little cumbersome and can also take up a lot of storage. Well, Shea and I are over here in the ladder section now and we think we’ve solved that problem, haven’t we?

Shea Pettaway: Yes, Jodi. We have a new compact extension ladder by Werner. It gives you a good carry handle.

Jodi Marks: Which is really important for an extension ladder.

Shea Pettaway: Yes, it is. It also gives you an easy transport and easy storage.

Jodi Marks: See, that’s great. Now, take a look at this. This is a 16-foot ladder. And this one is a 16-foot ladder. But look how long it is. Each piece is eight feet here. So to use it indoors, I mean, it pretty much has rendered itself useless ’cause you’re going to strike your ceiling. However, see this one right here, it is so compact that it shrinks down to six feet.

This is perfect if you’re going to be just installing crown molding or if you have to get cut in for your paint trim. It is very easy to extend, when you need it. It’s very easy to knock it back down into place when you don’t. And like you say, it’s very light weight and easy to transport.
