At A Glance

This Alert Affects
Those who were injured after their Werner Co. "Easy Access Attic Ladders" broke.
What's the Problem?
It has been alleged that the S2200 series of Werner's attic ladders have defective hinges that are made from low-grade zinc aluminum, also known as "pot metal." This makes the steel ladders less sturdy and more susceptible to bending, breaking or shearing. Property owners have complained that they suffered serious injuries after their attic ladders broke during use.
Affected Ladders
"Easy Access Attic Ladders" with model numbers S2208 and S2210 AND with marks 1, 2, 3 or 4. They were sold exclusively through Lowe's between 2003 and 2008.
