Why use a Ladder Loading System?

Ladder Loading Systems lead the way as a safe and convenient way of loading ladders on to vans. Favoured by roofers, councils and housings associations, these systems make loading ladders easier and much safer. Available in either side or rear loading configurations, these systems present ladders to a safe working height, minimizing the need to access the van roof or lift excessive weight above shoulder height.  

As specialists in van roof systems, we are able to supply a range of ladder loading systems from OptiLift and Van Guard, both high quality products offering the best in functionality and reliability with a UK support network.



Offering a unique side loading platform to accommodate and pair of ladders, the OptiLift is the UK's only system to present ladders to the side of the vehicle. Kerb side loading keeps operators away from the road and means loads are always accessible in urban environments.

The system is capable of carrying loads of up to 50kg, whilst being easy to operate in all conditions. The OptiLift boasts the largest effective load area of any side loading system, with a T-Track slotted base allowing for easy positioning of loads into their optimum position. Additional attachments cater for storing different types of ladder or a variety of loads and our team can even create a secure system built specifically around your needs.


Where vehicle access isn't an issue, the rear ladder loader from Van Guard offers an easy and safe way of loading ladders on the roof of your van. Mounting to a set of roof bars, the system can be configured for up to 2 ladders with a range of weight ratings.
