Working on the ladder,
an often underestimated danger!!

According to the statistics of the German institution for statutory accident insurance and prevention, 180,000 ladder accidents occur in Germany every year. About 50,000 of that in the private sector.

Ladders are among the most commonly used work equipment and used millions of times a day in Germany. However, an appropriate ladder head securing is far too rarely used.

About every 3 minutes a ladder accident happens in Germany!! How do you secure your ladder?


Extract of an accident report:

When cleaning a gutter at a height of about 5.00 m (16.4 feet), the insurant leaned to one side. The ladder slide aside and fell with the insurant.
A lumbar vertebra fracture and other fractures were the result.

Cause of the accident: Unsecured ladder head!!


Extract of an accident report:

An insurant cutting the branches of a climbing plant on a pergola. He leaned a ladder to the struts at a height of about 2.70 m (8.8 feet). Then he stepped on the pergola and continued to cut the plant. When climbing back onto the ladder, the ladder slipped backwards, the insured fell and hit his head on the cobblestones below. He suffered severe head injuries.

Cause of the accident: Unsecured ladder head!!

The ladder head safety system or "LeiKoSi"

The ladder head safety system or LeiKoSi in short, is used to secure leaning ladders, sliding and cable ladders as well as corresponding multi-purpose ladders that can be used in the leaning position. The application is very simple and unique in its handling. The LeiKoSi is designed in a way that it can be mounted to the ladder from the ground and that just with a few simple steps.

When you now lean on the ladder to gutters, flat roofs, etc., it is already reliably secured against slipping. If the ladder needs to be moved, you can simply push it from the ground without loosening the anchoring. These features make our product unique.

LeiKoSi - stands for safety!

That's how it's done right!

See how fast and easy the LeiKoSi can be handled in this short video clip. Our ladder head safety system is designed so that it can be attached to the ladder and disassembled on the ground in just a few steps (within approx. 10 seconds). When applying e.g. at the gutter or flat roof, the ladder is reliably secured against slipping from the first ascent.
