Safety in Every Step

Wibe Ladders - Global

Wibe Ladders is the leading Nordic manufacturer of tradesmen’s ladders, trestle steps and scaffolding for professional users. For more than 90 years we have led the development of reliable ladders that meet the very highest market standards.

Everything we do is based on quality and safety, from product development and production to delivery and our work on enhancing ladder safety in the workplace. So you can rely on us to put safety first in each and every step.

Wibe Ladders is part of Hultafors Group, which offers a wide range of premium products for professionals who need to be one step ahead. This backing gives us the power we need to expand our horizons and go for our next goal: to be the leading brand when it comes to Safety in Every Step.

“Everything we do is based on safety and quality”

Commercial Manager Robert Agerskog talks about our philosophy and our promise: to put safety first in every step.

“When you buy a ladder from Wibe Ladders, there’s one thing you can be sure of: every fitting, every material and every solution has been examined down to the finest detail, and has been meticulously designed to guarantee your safety. This is true of our entire comprehensive range, from our sturdy trestle steps and scaffolding, to our fire and rescue ladders. The solution we offer is safe on every level.”

What is ‘safe work’?

“Safe work is fundamentally about choosing the right solution for the right job. Will you be working at low heights, or a bit higher? Or is your safety when ascending and descending from great heights the most important thing? We’ve considered every single scenario for working at height when developing our products.”

How do you assure the quality of Wibe Ladders’ products?

“All our products undergo regular testing by RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden, for type approval in line with prevailing norms. We also conduct our own regular tests, overseen by RISE, to make sure that all our products meet the high standards we promise. For us it all comes down to one thing: you should always be able to rest assured that we put your safety first, in every step.”
