    Prime Design is the industry-leading ergonomic ladder rack manufacturer. Their racks are designed around the worker – to make the job safer, easier, and more comfortable by reducing stress on the body. How their products impact day to day work is as important as the quality of materials and construction.

    ErgoRack

    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.

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

    Configuration Types

    Horizontal Rotation

    Prime Design ErgoRack Horizontal-Rotation

    Easily rotate a ladder from the stowed position to the deployed position

    • Ergonomic design for improved safety and ease of use
    • Designed to move ladders up to 75 lbs.
    • Hydraulic cylinder provides controlled ladder movement
    • Deployed ladders are at a comfortable height and distance from the vehicle
    • Durable padded and powder-coated surfaces protect ladders for long service life

    High Roof

    Prime Design ErgoRack High-Roof

    Slide provides easy access for operators of any height.

    Accessing a ladder on a high roof can prove a challenge. We have answered the challenge with two unique features:

    • On racks equipped with a side extension, the ladder can be lowered an additional 22 inches.
    • A removable handle provides easy access for operators of any height.

    Inclined Rotation

    Prime Design ErgoRack Inclined-Rotation

    Reduce the amount of force it takes to move a ladder by 50%

    • Ergonomic design for improved safety and ease of use
    • Design provides force reduction to move ladders up to 120 lbs. easier
    • Hydraulic cylinder provides controlled ladder movement
    • Deployed ladders are at a comfortable height and distance from the vehicle
    • Durable padded and powder-coated surfaces protect ladders for long service life

    Prime Design ErgoRack Clamp-Down

    AluRack

    Aerodynamic and Lightweight

    Work hard, look stylish and stay safe. The AluRack features the industry’s original rolling bar, which makes it safe and easy to load bulky sheets of plywood, drywall, pipe and even weekend toys from the back of the truck. The lightweight, yet rugged design can carry all of your cargo and withstand challenging weather conditions.

    Plus, the aerodynamic design looks modern, reduces fuel consumption and ensures almost silent travel.

    Conduit Carrier

    Aerodynamic and durable storage

    Confidently secure long material for transportation on your work vehicle. The 5″ square carrier offers greater storage capacity or volume than the standard 6″ PVC pipe solution. The aerodynamic design minimizes wind noise at high speeds. Aluminum construction is durable, lasting for the duration of your work vehicle. Carriers are available for installation on most ErgoRack or AluRack in various lengths.

    Spliced Design

    Prime Design’s Conduit Carriers ship in two parts and are joined together with a padded aluminum coupler (splice) to form a full size carrier comparable to the retired one piece design. Compact packaging for the spliced conduit carrier components minimizes shipping and handling expenses or challenges.
