You asked and we responded with the Max Rack
We have received many requests over the years for a drop down ladder rack for cargo vans. Tradesmen, Upfitters and Fleet Managers were coming to Ranger Design with the same messages. “We need a safer drop down system”. “They take a lot of abuse so you need to design a tough one”. “People tend to run them into things. If you ever create one, make sure it is low profile”. “If it ships as quick as the rest of your products that would be amazing”. With these comments in mind, we gave our team of engineers a clear set of objectives:
- Design a rack that will drop the ladder in one easy motion
- Make sure that the operator does not have to perform a secondary motion to drop it down and it is always out of the path of the descending assembly.
- We want a mechanism that brings the ladder exceptionally low.
- Sliding door must be able to open when the mechanism is down.
- The ladder must only touch plastic to prevent unnecessary wear.
The New Benchmark Drop Down Ladder Rack for Cargo Vans
After thousands of hours of innovation, testing, cost analysis, redesigning and client canvassing our engineers finally had a design that was worthy of our standards. Based on feedback from pre-launch prototypes, our clients felt that the system our engineers created surpassed industry expectations and functioned better than models already on the market in the following areas:
SAFER: Lowering up to 50 inches in one single motion, with the operator out of the path of the descending assembly.
TOUGHER: We subjected this product to harsh testing (5 year life cycle tests and military spec 108 degree Fahrenheit thermo cycling and freezing rain tests) and it passed with flying colors. We also field tested it for real-life feedback from tradesmen.
FASTER: The standout feature was the ease of operation. No secondary motion was required to drop it down. Its gas shock assisted descent made operation a quick and easy task.
Be sure to drop by the Ranger Design booth during the upcoming NTEA Work Truck Show to see this revolutionary new drop down ladder rack system in action and try it for yourself.
The system is be available for these cargo vans: Ford Transit, the Mercedes Sprinter, the Nissan NV and the Ram ProMaster by early 2015.
