Safety is a key factor that we take into consideration when introducing new products to the market. Whether you’re climbing up and down to add a fresh coat of paint to your staircase or removing and replacing wallcovering, ladder safety should matter. It’s not just about choosing the correct ladder and following the basic safety protocol. Like any job, you need to have the tools on hand to get projects done more smoothly and quickly.
Nothing impacts job productivity more than accidents and injuries. Every year, there are more than 300 ladder-related deaths and over 164,000 emergency room-treated injuries. Falls from ladders are a leading cause of injury when doing DIY work. The most frequent ladder injuries include broken bones, backs, pelvises, and severe head-related injuries. Regardless of whether you’re a homeowner or professional, it’s time to get serious about safety.
According to a 2016 study conducted by the American Ladder Institute (ALI), the main reasons for ladder-related accidents are:
1) Missing last step when climbing down
2) Not maintaining three points of contact
4) Poor ladder positioning
5) Not securing the ladder
The ALLWAY® Telescopic Bucket System will makes the difference between productivity and preventable accidents and falls. This painting tool allows for hassle-free painting and wallcovering. This unique and innovative tripod and roller bucket system is extendable up to 9.2 feet in safe working height and can be made moveable. The quick release tripod attachment allows convenient removal of bucket for filling and low-level work. The detachable bucket features a tool tray, roller grid and magnetic brush attachment. Less climbing up and down ladders as everything you need can be stored and raised to the desired height.
This allows for both hands to remain free when climbing up and down the ladder. This will maximize your three-point contact on the ladder and increases safety while working on one, especially in hard to areas. The Telescopic Bucket System will make DIYers and professionals safer when doing painting or wallcovering on a ladder. This painting tool comes with two lightweight, disposable roller bucket liners that make clean-up quick and easy. A three-pack is also sold separately. For those who live in the Chicago metropolitan area, the Telescopic Bucket System and its liners are available in JC Licht. You can also find them on Amazon.
