The Ladder Transit is the smartest, safest way to transport your ladder.

Ladder accidents aren’t restricted to times people are actually using their ladders... they can also occur during transport, when a loose ladder falls from a vehicle and becomes hazardous road debris.

And the cause of loose ladders? Human error...

Traditional ladder rails rely on the user MANUALLY securing their ladder to the rails, in at least 2 places. This takes time and effort, and often involves the user climbing and leaning across the vehicle roof, and fiddling with straps or tie-downs.

And unfortunately, ladders are NOT always properly secured to the ladder rails, and can become loose during transport.

Consequences for loose ladders can be severe -

“Transport regulations set out the rules for carrying loads on vehicles,
so if you run a business which carries ladders on vehicles,
or manage a fleet which does,
then it makes sense to ensure your process for securing ladders to your vehicles
is beyond reproach.”

The answer?  The Ladder Transit.
Designed and made here in Australia,  the Ladder Transit is the safest, smartest way to transport ladders. It AUTOMATICALLY locks your ladder in place the moment it's loaded into the unit, so there's no room for human error, and no chance of your ladder ever coming loose during transit.

That's it, done. No second step or fiddling with tie-downs required.
Loaded IS Locked. And your ladder is secure and safe for travel.

The Ladder Transit is quick to install on your vehicle's roof racks, and is fast and easy to use.

The patented Ladder Transit unit is designed to automatically collapse to the closed and locked position once a ladder is inserted. Once closed, the rung locks and front striker bar on the Ladder Transit, hold the ladder in place. There's also a safety catch at the rear of the Ladder Transit which ensures the unit remains in the closed position, making doubly sure that your ladder isn't going anywhere!

There is no need for any straps or tie downs...

...saving you time and headspace, and you can be confident your ladder stays safe and secure until you're ready to remove it from the vehicle.

Loading and unloading your ladder is a quick and easy process with the Ladder Transit.

One Step to Load, Three Steps to Unload.


Step 1. Slide your ladder firmly and fully into the Ladder Transit, maintaining momentum as the top rung (or chain) of your ladder hits the front striker bar, causing the unit to collapse forward and shut. 

That's it. Done. Ready to drive away.

Step 1. Pull and hold the safety catch open.

Step 2. Pull down on the handle. This will 'open' the Ladder Transit, and the front striker bar will push the rear of the ladder out towards you.

Step 3. Take hold of your ladder, and slide out until it's fully removed from the Ladder Transit.
