When we first thought about making a ladder racks, we sought contractors and roofers. We asked them what they wanted in a rack.
We found 3 things to be at the top of their list.
With their feedback and top 3 most important attributes, we launched production of the perfect ladder rack.
Every ladder rack on the marker uses 1/8” or thinner aluminum. This simply would not work for what our customers wanted and what we wanted to make. We thought about using ¼” but due to the thickness this would just not work without being clumsy and just too big. We found that 1/6” thick aluminum would be perfect, but the problem is that you cannot find this anywhere in the US. However, we were not going to let the lack of what we wanted keep us from making the perfect ladder rack. So, we went a step further and bought a 1/6” aluminum mold for our extrusion machine. Now with this new mold we can build a rack to meet the needs of any contractor, roofer, or home user. These newly designed racks can be adjusted to fit any size trailer from 2’ to 8.5’ wide. Our racks support 285lbs each! This is almost double the next best rack. Our racks do not just work for ladders, but we designed these to be able to carry scaffolding, canoes, kayaks, ladders, lumber, pipe, conduit, and much more.
We make two different models; the first model is designed for flat topped trailers. These racks have a piece of 90-degree angle aluminum on the bottom. This makes the rack fit snug against the top of the trailer. Then we make our round top models. These have a piece ¼” thick flat aluminum on the bottom. This allows you to attach the rack to the top of your trailer. We added 6 inches to these racks to make sure that they clear the bow of the roof.
Every rack comes with two side pieces and one 1”x2”x8’6” aluminum tube. The center tube can then be cut to any width trailer. Each set comes with 4 stainless steel bolts, 16 stainless steel washers, 4 stainless steel nylon nuts, and 8 stainless steel self-tapping screws.
Our racks are all TIG welded making them not only stronger than any MIG welded rack but also better looking.
We designed out racks to install quickly and easily. Each rack will only take about 15 minutes to install.
