The vast majority of ladder accidents are caused by two things: using the wrong ladder for the job and overreaching. Little Giant Ladders designed theLittle Giant Ladders Type IA Model 22 to help you avoid these common problems. The Dark Horse is the only fiberglass multi-use ladder on the market. Its wide-flared base provides much more lateral stability than straight-sided step or extension ladders, preventing many accidents caused by overreaching. And, because it is constructed with super-lightweight, super-strong fiberglass composite, the Little Giant Ladders Type IA Model 22 is a versatile tool for any jobsite. You can use the Little Giant Dark Horse Model 22 in 33 unique configurations, including A-frame, extension and 90-degree ladders. It literally replaces several sizes of stepladders and extension ladders, and unlike any other ladder, allows you to work safely on stairs.
