CROSS STEP Ranging in load capacity from 250 to 375 lbs., Louisville Ladder’s new two-in-one Cross Step combines a step-ladder and leaning shelf ladder in one. The V-shaped Pro Tops with slip- resistant grips, allow the Cross Step to lean on buildings, in cor- ners, on corners, and fit on poles when in the shelf position. To keep the job moving and your tools close, Cross Step ladders have a magnetic strip and slots
for tools. The locking latch sits on both sides of the rear section and locks the ladder into place, pre- venting the rear from moving. When set up in step-ladder position, the unique design of the Cross Step allows you to get 6 inches closer to your work area to reduce overreaching and strain- ing. Each model is equipped with the SHOX impact-absorption sys- tem and Raptor Boot that delivers longer ladder life and slip-resistant footing. Visit louisvilleladder.com.
