Werner definitely designed this ladder with professional job sites in mind. The shatterproof J-locks are made of high-grade aluminum, and the oversized rubberized hinge locks are impact resistant for added durability.

Aluminum J-lock

The MT-22IAA is constructed of lightweight aluminum that truly cuts down on the total weight. They managed to shave off a little of that weight by introducing their Powerlite rail system, making it easier to transport and set up than previous models. All in, this ladder weighs an even 40 pounds—Werner’s lightest IAA rated multi-position ladder.

Quick Reference Guide

Most of the ladder configurations are pretty straight forward, but the scaffolding setup can be a little tricky.

Start by unlocking all four J-locks and removing the outer Powerlite rails. Next, place the inner section into the stepladder position—this is the first of two trestles required for the scaffold. Using the remaining sections, turn one section 180° and insert the J-locks of one section into the adjacent holes of the other section. Lastly, spread the two sections apart to create the second trestle.

square rungs

For maximum stability, make sure your plank is long enough to cross all four rungs and always secure the plank to each trestle to prevent it from moving. Additionally, you should never place the plank on the top rung of either trestle.

Additional Features

  • Slip resistant feet
  • Flared bottom for additional support
