Ladder Loading Systems

Ladder loading systems take the strain out of loading ladders onto high roof vans. Favoured by roofers, councils and housings associations, these systems make loading ladders easier and much safer.

As specialists in van roof systems, we are able to supply a range of ladder loading systems from OptiLift and Van Guard. These cover both rear and side loading requirements, with premium products offering the best in functionality and reliability.


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 a variety of different loads and our team can create a secure system built specifically around your needs if required.
