Zico improves ladder access on narrow streets

Ziamatic Corp. (Zico), an international leader in ladder storage solutions, is making it safer and easier to deploy ladders in space-restricted areas with their new Slide-Out Ladder Gantry System, Model SLG-M.

Traditional side-mounted ladder storage can be difficult to safely access when operating in a confined environment like a narrow, car-lined street. So the Ladder Gantry System stores ladders horizontally over the roof of the apparatus and when needed, smoothly lowers them from the rear of the truck for quick, easy, and comfortable retrieval.

“Two-section and roof, three-section and roof, we can accommodate most common ladder configurations,” said Keith Creely, Ziamatic Vice President. “And by storing these ladders on top of the truck you’ll find you’ve suddenly freed up all this extra square footage in your apparatus design. You no longer need that midsize compartment to hang your ladders over—you can go full size. You don’t have to slide ladders in the back and sacrifice compartment depth. All of that space can go toward storing more gear, because everybody always needs more room for equipment.”

The lightweight aluminum tray slides smoothly under load and a powerful spring lock secures the tray safely in both the stored and fully-deployed positions. A built-in dampener minimizes bounce and allows for easier operation on hills and other inclines.
