Traction-Tred D-rungs are slip-resistant for a safe climb and descent.
The ladder's Shu-Lok slip-resistant feet feature a spur end for use on soft ground.
All Werner D1200-2 Aluminum D-rung extension ladders have a Type II duty rating, which means the load capacity is 225 pounds. This duty rating includes the combined weight of the user and materials. Each ladder features 1-3/4-inch slip-resistant D-rungs that provide a flat, comfortable standing surface.
Twist-Proof Performance and Shu-Lok Feature
D1200-2 Series ladders feature the patented ALFLO rung joint that is designed to keep the ladder from twisting while in use. Additionally, each ladder's foot design includes a spur for use on soft ground. The Shu-Lok feature holds the foot in position.
Durable and Easy to Use
Werner D1200-2 Series ladders are easy to extend thanks to interlocking side rails, spring loaded locks, and smooth-operating pulleys (model D1216-2 is not equipped with rope and pulley).
For durability, the I-beam rail architecture strengthens the aluminum rail. Each ladder also has mar-resistant end caps that help preserve the ladder and the surface the ladder leans against.

I have found this ladder, the 1228 yellow tip to be the best choice for about 95 percent of my work. It doesent break my back, the rails are far enough apart for a good secure feel when I am on the ladder and it is very well made. I am replacing a blue tip 250# 28 footer with this one because the blue is a back breaker. I hate to admit it but I am near 250# and the yellow tip does not deflect with me on it even when it is fully extended

This is an excellent all around ladder that will serve you for many years. One change you should make if you leave it outside like I do is to change the rope with a good 1/2 inch marine grade rope that dosent degrade from UV. I guess the rope it comes with is OK if the ladder is kept inside most of the time. Mine stays on my truck.
At the risk of preaching to the choir, I am passing on the following advice and tips:
1. Be extremely careful around power lines. If you are absent minded or just live around a lot of power, buy fiberglass. But beware, they weigh a ton, and really slip on aluminum gutters, and metal edges.
2. Stick some peel and stick rubber on the back rails where the ladder will contact metal. metal to metal slips nearly as bad as fiberglass to metal.
3. Always keep your load perpendicular to the rungs. In other words, never side load the ladder when stepping onto the roof, or onto the ladder from the roof.
4. ALways extend the ladder at least 3 rungs above the eaves.
5. do not reach, move the ladder.
6. Tie the ladder off.Read more ›
I know this ladder costs ($) more than the comparable off brand version, but it is entirely worth it. Just imagine yourself bouncing all over creation and holding on for dear life at the top of your cheap ladder. Or even better, imagine me doing that while you are happily perched on your Werner. (Actually I'll be on a Werner too from now on.)
So cool, way to go Amazon with this product diversification!
