So you have finally decided to invest in that extension ladder that you have had your eye on for some time. You can now get to high places in your home that you would never have been able to reach only a few days ago. Unfortunately, once you bring that ladder to your home, you may be completely surprised that you have no place in your house or garage to store such a monstrous piece of hardware. If you are like most people in America, chances are you have filled up both your house and your garage with any variety of items, making it impossible to store your ladder on the floor. In a last-ditch effort to stash your ladder away when you are not using it, you may want to check out a ladder rack which can easily hold your newest investment. Ladder racks are great accessories that can easily help people conserve space in their homes or garages by mounting their ladders on the wall instead of simply propping them up on the floor.
A ladder rack is at its most useful when you have a full-sized ladder such as an extension ladder. While a ladder rack is able to hold all sorts of ladders, from traditional A-frame style to articulated ladders, longer ladders will generally benefit more since they take up far more space than other types of ladders. Even your step stools and indoor ladders can benefit from a ladder rack, as it will also allow you to conserve space in even the smallest of broom closets. Simply mount the rack on the closet wall and hang the step stool from its that easy. When it comes to a collapsible ladder, a ladder rack may not even be necessary, as the ladder can collapse down far enough that you could simply store it in a closet or a small nook or cranny in your garage.
