Ranger Design has reimagined their Ladder Rack line to provide a tough, safe, and simple design to meet customers’ every need, the company reports.
The new line includes the Low Roof Max Rack and the Cargo Rack, both which launch April 12, and a new Clamp Rack and Combination Rack which will be available this summer. Already on the market is the rearing loading Access Stow Rack.
The new Clamp Rack features inside hooks that guide the ladder during loading and unloading. Its throttle latch secures the ladder from the outside to avoid rungs, brackets, and gussets, and is designed to prevent metal-to-metal contact and avoid splinters from fiberglass ladders.
Also, all ladder racks have a compatible modular design, the company notes. One platform is used to build the entire line. This means customers can purchase a base rack, like the Cargo Rack, and then upgrade it to any other one in the lineup, simply by purchasing an extra part—eliminating the need to replace the entire rack.
This is also meant to be easier and more cost-effective for Ranger Design distributors. Install time for upgrading a rack is faster, as there is no need to remove the base rack. The modular design also means less boxes are required to build complete lineup, going from 105 down to 33. This is designed to be much easier to stock and will drastically reduce amount of space needed to store the parts.
