The Safest Ladder Rack for the Job
Two important business investments that most tradesman make is their vehicle and a ladder rack to go with it. They need to ensure their choice of equipment performs well, is durable and will save them both time and money.
Today more tradesmen are turning to high roof cargo vans as the smart choice for their business. With increased standing headroom and more cargo space, a high roof makes sense. The challenge then becomes how to load a ladder onto the roof without damaging the ladder, the van or getting injured in the process.
With this in mind, here are some reasons tradesmen consider drop-down racks for their high roof vans:
Reduced Risk of Injury: By lowering to a level that is easy to load and secure a ladder, the risk of injury to the back, shoulders or neck of the operator is greatly reduced.
Reduced Damage: Ladders are expensive. However this style of ladder rack protects your investment by ensuring the ladders are loaded and unloaded without damage.
Increased Cargo Capacity: Stowing the ladder on top of the van frees up valuable interior space. More room is gained for cargo and equipment.
Greater Productivity: Loading and unloading a drop-down ladder rack is a fast process. Tradesmen do not have to fumble around to get the ladder on and off their van numerous times a day. Instead, they spend more time on the job, increasing billable hours.
Introducing the Ranger Design Max Rack
At Ranger Design we listened to tradesmen with high roof vans and we learned their ladder rack needs. With this information, we were able to develop the industry leading Max Rack drop-down ladder rack. It offers all of the benefits that are highlighted above, while leading the competition with these advanced features:
