ErgoRack reduces efforts by 70%

With our ergonomic patented ladder carrier, workers can safely and quickly load and unload ladders from the ground, independently from the height of the vehicle.
The ladder does not touch the vehicle’s bodywork, preserving it from eventual damage and the lateral deployment movement makes it ideal for parking slots between other vehicles or on a hill.

1. Load from the ground

Ladder is loaded from the ground to the front hook to counterbalance more than half of the ladder weight when swinging its bottom part to the rear hook.

2. High roof slide

Extra slide automatically delivered for high roof vehicles to lower the ladder further and assist its lifting.

3. Steadyness & noise reduction

Padded adjustable auto-clamp and support posts locks ladder in place during transport and reduce vibration. 

4. Operating handle

Removable ergonomic handle for easy deployment operations while user remains on the ground.

Three ErgoRack Models

The PDE lateral deployment ladder rack best for your needs depends on the ladder weight and van roof height.
All high roof versions include an extra slide extension on the rear part of the ErgoRack.

ErgoRack loading procedure

ErgoRack: Ergonomic, safe, easy

The ease, convenience and safety delivered by this hyper-capable system saves valuable time daily, costly repairs to vehicles and injury to workers.

The ergonomic advantage of ErgoRack

Engineered with medical specialists

Developed and tested with orthopedic surgeons to reduce the impact on arms, shoulders and lower back.

prevents physical stress

Unlike many ladder deployment methods, ErgoRack causes minimal stress to the operator’s body and reduces back strains by two thirds.

Force comparison

For an average pulled force of 4.5 kg,

Traditional ladder rack solutions:

Upper arm force: 4.9 kg
Lower back force: 134.3 kg

ErgoRack ergonomic system:

Upper arm force: 1.4 kg
Lower back force: 44.5 kg

Smooth operation

A hydraulic cylinder controls the movement of the ladder for smooth operations by controlling the glide speed. 


The patented Auto-Clamp prevents the ladder from tackling against the system and drastically enhances noise reduction.

Paired with the L-post and Z-post, the energy is absorbed, and the ladder is safely secured during transport

Flexible positioning and upgrade

Right - Left - Double

ErgoRack can be installed on the left side, on the right side or on both sides of commercial vehicles’ roof.
