MagBuddy is a patented ladder safety device to help prevent ladder fall injuries in the steel tank and steel construction workplace.
MagBuddy is a ladder attachment device with a magnet seated at the end of a pivoting offset. MagBuddy is sold as a matched pair with a left and right attachment for each ladder rail. When used properly with an ANSI-compliant ladder, the MagBuddy will adhere the ladder to a ferromagnetic surface and maintain the OSHA recommended 75.5 degree angle.
MagBuddy has been successfully tested by a certified engineering testing service using ANSI equivalent standards. When properly placed against a ferromagnetic surface, MagBuddy's magnetic force dramatically increases the stability and greatly reduces slippage of a straight or extension ladder.
*All surfaces must be ferromagnetic such as iron and most steel in order for MagBuddy's magnets to attach to the material.
NOTE: MagBuddy is not a substitute for the placement and use of ANSI compliant ladders in accordance with OSHA regulations for portable ladder safety. For more information and recommendations regarding portable ladder safety, go to www.osha.gov.
