Lightweight, Safe and Easy

Prime Design has been the industry’s ergonomic leader since 1992, when we first introduced the concept of an ergonomic ladder rack.

Our design philosophy starts with the worker – how can we make the job safer, easier and more comfortable for the human body? That is because we firmly believe that a product’s design and how it impacts the user is every bit as important as the quality of materials and construction.

The ErgoRack was designed to reduce muscle stress, eliminate risk of injury and speed the job of loading and unloading ladders from a work van.


Easy to use

Deploys with only 2 fingers

Reduce Injuries

Eliminates slip and fall hazards from climbing on bumper or tire

Improve Productivity

Deploy or stow in less than 20 seconds

Safe Operation

Feet stay safely on the ground.

Reduce Back Strain

Reduce back and muscle strain from improper loading.

Smooth Operation

Hydraulic cylinder provides smoothest, controlled descent of any rack in the industry.

Easy Access

Removable handle – easy access for operators of any height.

Maintenance

Maintain vehicle warranty and resale value with no holes to drill.

Ergonomic

Winner of ergonomic awards in USA, France, Germany, and Australia.

*Three crossbar rack
Notes: Ship thru configurations are available. Crossbar spacing and the vehicle’s wheelbase length will dictate the ladders that can be carried. Crossbars can be spaced at six, seven, or eight feet. If carrying a long extension ladder and a short step ladder, a three crossbar rack is suggested. Contact Prime Design customer service for application specific questions. Check the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation for roof capacity weight limits.  A wide range of accessories are available including conduit carriers, light holders, and more.

*Three crossbar rack

**One 5′ connecting bar (FEA-0022) is required per rotation feature for 8′ crossbar spacing. FEA-0022 is ordered separately.

Notes: Crossbar spacing and the vehicle’s wheelbase length will dictate the ladders that can be carried. Crossbars can be spaced at five, six, seven, or eight feet. A 3rd crossbar can be spaced four, five, six, or seven feet. If carrying a long extension ladder and a short step ladder, a three crossbar rack is suggested. Contact Prime Design customer service for application specific questions. Check the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation for roof capacity weight limits. A wide range of accessories are available including conduit carriers, light holders, and more.
