The Historic Putnam Classic No. 1 Rolling Ladder

Since its first design in 1905, the Putnam Classic No. 1 hasn’t changed. Simply put, it’s a perfect rolling ladder design, which is why it’s been the wooden rolling ladder of choice for more than a century. Our Classic No. 1 can be found in the personal homes of former presidents, in esteemed businesses like Brooks Brothers, and as the historic, all-American wooden rolling ladder of phone companies, dry goods mercantiles, and university libraries.
