Weather Guard® announces the release of the next generation EZGlide2™ Drop-Down Ladder Racks for contractors and remodelers who need to secure and transport their ladders and electrical conduit on top of a van. This product is designed to be the easiest, lightest and most versatile model on the market.
The EZGlide2™ drop-down ladder racks improve user safety when handling heavy ladder loads, especially with many of the new high-roof van models. It is also 50% easier to operate than competitor drop-down racks. The heavy-duty design is built with long-lasting powder coated aluminum for continual use and because it is the lightest weight drop-down ladder rack, it maximizes the roof weight capacity of the van and improves vehicle gas mileage.
Weather Guard® offers a complete line of van ladder racks to choose from based on vehicle styles and applications, including models for compact, full size, mid-roof and high-roof vans. The EZGlide2™ is the latest addition to the portfolio and offers a solution that maximizes roof weight capacity to safely hold the most equipment and supplies possible. Not only is the EZGlide2™ lighter in weight but it is also lighter in cost and will be more affordable than the first generation EZGlide™ models.
The ladder racks fit extension ladders up to 40' and step or podium ladders from 3' to 12' and easily operates with up to 100 lbs of ladders per side. The optional third cross-member accommodates a conduit carrier for secure storage.
A variety of mounting kits are offered to allow OEM integration with various van models.
