Little Giant Ladder Systems, the industry leader in ladder safety innovation, has developed two ladders especially for firefighters. Firefighters work in the most hazardous environments. Little Giant’s fire service ladders improve firefighter safety by providing a stable work platform with features that are specifically aimed at hazards that firefighters face every day.
OverhaulThe Little Giant Overhaul™ ladder system was designed by firefighters for firefighters. The Overhaul ladder extends to 17 feet but is small enough to carry into an elevator, up a flight of stairs, or around tight corners. The ladder is just 4 foot 7 inches tall when retracted.The Overhaul has been engineered to combat all the unique challenges that firefighters have to face every day.
DefenderThe Little Giant Defender™ was specifically engineered for firefighters who need speed and strength in a rapid-response portable ladder system. The Defender is designed to fit existing storage spaces in most fire engines and is constructed of a special alloy that makes it lighter than any comparable industrial-rated ladder. The Defender also includes several innovative new features such as the Quad-Lock™ hinge and the Rock Locks™ for quick, easy adjustment with heavy firefighter gloves. The Defender can be used in dozens of unique configurations as an A-frame, extension, staircase and 90-degree ladder, and as a trestle-and-plank scaffolding system. The Defender’s wide-flared legs and aerospace-grade aluminum construction provide an unmatched feeling of safety and stability.
