What are ladder racks?

Posted By 4wd accessoriesdirect     October 7, 2022    


Electricians, landscapers or contractors often keep looking for ways to maximise the functionality of their work vehicles. Tradies who frequently haul odd shaped items to their job sites often face storage challenges.


Thanks to innovation and technology, these days ute trays are customised in the most efficient way to thoughtfully utilise every inch of space on the back of the ute. Ute trays, storage boxes and canopies are great for small size work tools, but what if you need to carry longer equipment? This is when ladder racks come in handy.


As the name suggests, a ladder rack is used to transport ladders. Installing a rack reduces the risk of damaging the car and avoids the hassle of fitting a long ladder inside the vehicle.


To put it simply, hauling heavy, long and odd shaped items without the risk of damaging the interior or exterior of a ute or 4WD can be done efficiently with the help of ladder racks.

You can use your ladder rack for:

  1. Improved functionality

Ladder racks are robustly built and can be used to safely haul long length tools, equipment, building materials, and camping or fishing gear.


  1. Improved aesthetics

Ladder racks feature tradesmen and styled configurations in polished, satin or powder-coating finish to match the aesthetics of your vehicle are popular.


What are ladder racks made  of?

A wide range of ladder racks are available in the market. The premium range of ladder racks that are most suitable for 4WD and utes are made from Australian aluminium tubing.


Custom made ladder racks can be ordered in either steel or alloy fabrication.


How much do ladder racks cost?

The cost of a ladder rack varies depending on certain characteristics. The first and most important point that determines the price of a ladder rack is the wall thickness. If you go for a broader and thicker option, it might cost a bit more than the ladder racks with thinner wall dimensions.


Secondly, the cost is determined between mandrel bends and crush bends.


Certain other things like the fabrication material, the design and the finish also play a crucial role in the final cost. For a complete price breakdown, it is best to talk to a manufacturer.


What to look for when investing in a ladder rack?

Always invest in high quality material and well coated racks. Quality ensures durability and superior load bearing performance, while the quality of coating and finish offers superior protection against rust for a longer period of time.


Safety is another important aspect that you should not compromise onwhen investing in ladder racks. There are various products designed, such as grip locks that prevent slipping of ladders during transit. So make sure the design you are customising is compatible with such accessories.


Are ladder racks worth it?

A ladder rack is a great way to safely increase the load bearing capacity of your ute.
