Years ago, U-TECK combined a longtime, craft-accepted wooden ladder wedge design with polyethylene material to produce a rugged ladder wedge that can be warranted for up to five years. Using this material prevented paint scrapes and gouges by doing away with wood, and painting, all together; the color is molded throughout the polyethylene wedge. In reviewing this popular standard in ladder leveling, we found that the ladders most often used today by OSP personnel have transitioned to ladders with wider feet. Because of this research, we’ve increased the footprint size to each ladder wedge tier to accept up to 6-1/2” wide ladder feet. The “Universal” ladder wedge has all the same great features and load capacity as the original, but has now become much more versatile.

The Ladder Wedge is used when a ladder must be put against a building, cable, or pole, and one leg does not touch the ground firmly, thus creating an unsafe climbing condition. The Ladder Wedge is placed under the unlevel foot to make the ladder steady.

The U-TECK Ladder Wedge is also needed on soft ground to prevent earth movement, which can cause the ladder foot to move while the user is climbing.

The Ladder Wedge was put through rigorous testing by an outside testing facility. Their material analysis report concluded that no visible evidence of any deformation or failure of the wedge was noted at our specified 375 lb. minimum load or at their standard 396 lb. load test stop point.

The U-TECK Ladder Wedge is used by technicians, carpenters, electricians, painters, construction workers, laborers, roofers, etc.
