Brand Developers Limited—Transforma Multi-Purpose Ladder TR 24, TR 33, and TR 35
What are the defects?
The ladders do not comply with the Australia / New Zealand standard for portable ladders, AS/NZS 1982.1:1996, for the rated loading capacity of 180kg as claimed.
What are the hazards?
The load rating on the ladders is marked as 180kg instead of 120kg, which is their maximum safe loading. Using the ladders to support loads greater than 120kg may result in fall injuries.
What should consumers do?
The ladder must not be used to support loads greater than 120kg. Consumers will be contacted by Brand Developers Limited to arrange for them to receive one of the following:
(a) a new rating label marked with the correct loading capacity (120kg), or
(b) a full refund of the purchase price, or
(c) a replacement ladder
For further information, contact the customer service centre on 1 800 075 437 during business hours.
The ladders were sold directly by Brand Developers Limited to end users via tele-advertising promotion.
