We have been making ladder racks and cargo carriers for over 35 years. All of our racks are constructed of high strength steel and hot dip galvanized after fabrication for a rust free abrasive resistant finish that is unmatched in the industry. In fact our racks will out last the vehicles they are mounted on.
Galvanized coatings have a proven performance under numerous environmental conditions. "Because of the long life of the hot dip galvanized coating and its virtually maintenance-free performance, galvanizing is consistently a better value than paint over a structure's life." (American Galvanizers Association)
