The Scottish people are responsible for some of the most ground-breaking, world-changing inventions and discoveries in the entire world. The telephone, tarmac, the saline drip, the hypodermic syringe, penicillin, the television, the fridge, the flushing toilet, and, of course, the absolute pièce de résistance of modern cuisine, deep-fried chocolate bars.
“But… where are you going with this?”, I hear you ask? “We’re here for warehouse equipment, not to listen to you going on about how great Scottish people are.”
I’ll tell you, shall I? It was a Scottish zoologist who first used the name Green Mamba to describe a particular type of venomous snake he discovered in Natal.
“I still don’t get it!”, I hear you cry. “You’ve gone mad! You’re insane!”
Wait. Hear me out. I’m telling you all this because our new range of commercial fiberglass ladders, the FGCE, and the FGCSE, are nicknamed – you got it – the Green Mamba!
“Ah”, I hear you say. “Now I understand your literary genius.” And I say thank you. Thank you very much.
But just how exactly did our new commercial ladders earn the monicker, the Green Mambas?
Are they snakes? Well… no.
Are they poisonous? Don’t be ridiculous.
But they are sleek, long, lightweight and strong. They’re like Formula 1 racing cars, but in ladder form. (Sorry, that’s mixing metaphors.)
So here’s the lowdown. The FGCE is a commercial fibreglass push-up extension ladder that has a load capacity of 115KG, (that’s slightly more than Pumba from the Lion King. And as we all know, he’s a pretty hefty warthog.)
