When posed with the problem of providing a secure, safe and ergonomic solution to ladder storage in a Utilities service vehicle, Osborne Motor Bodies designed and built an electric winch operated ladder rack. Stowing into the roof space when not in use it leaves the box floor area clear to work in.
When lowered a hinged "H" Frame forward leg positions the rack at optimum height to deploy the ladder out of the rear of the vehicle over the threshold.
This solution helps responsible operators meet their Manual Handling
obligations to their staff.
