Werner Co., Greenville, Pa., recently announced the launch of the FiberGraphix Technology Series for use across a variety of duty ratings. To inaugurate the series, the company is rolling out a new USA-themed red, white and blue ladder. Surface-veil technology allows for permanent graphics to be seamlessly manufactured into the ladder, while maintaining the safety, durability and dependability of the equipment. The surface-veil technology combines chemical, visual design and pultrusion technologies that are used to provide improved appearance, durability and weather-resistant resin-rich surfaces. The pultrusion process — drawing fibers through a resin bath and thermosetting the material — results in a high-strength, lightweight product, which is electrically insulated and corrosion-resistant.
