Van Guard’s new ladder loader helps an operator safely load and unload ladders from the roof of a van

Manufacturer and supplier of roof bars, roof racks, internal racking and accessories for the commercial vehicle market, Van Guard have launched their own mechanically aided ladder loading system.

Unveiled at the CV Show 2019, the Van Guard Ladder Loader allows for a safe and effective way of loading and unloading ladders from the roof of your van from ground level, minimising health and safety issues. Its ergonomic design with gas strut assistance provides the ideal stowage and deployment system for operators looking to equip their light commercial vehicles with a quick and risk-free solution.

Three Ladder Loader lengths are available depending on the vehicle size, with Van Guard’s MAXI Ladder Loader options allowing for the carrying and safe transportation of two ladders.

Designed to utilise Van Guard’s aluminium van roof bars, the Ladder Loader is TÜV GS certified and crash tested to industry standards.

Andy Woodward, Sales & Marketing Director at Van Guard, said: “The introduction of the Ladder Loader to our product portfolio, alongside the recently launched range of aftermarket van locks, allows Van Guard to be your one-stop shop for the safe transporting & security of tools and equipment both internally and externally.”
