The Trucker® Series of ladders are safety engineered to reduce fall injuries when accessing truck trailer decks.

The ladders meet and exceed the general requirements provided by OSHA for ladder safety.
The Trucker® Series of ladders was recently tested and passed ANSI Type IAA Special Duty performance requirements. Type IAA is the maximum 375 lb. duty rating, described as Extra Heavy Duty load capacity. The Trucker® ladders underwent tests far exceeding the duty rating, passing test loads in excess of 1200 lbs. to meet the requirements of the Special Duty rating.

The Trucker® ladders are designed to mount to a variety of flatbed trailers including drop deck, roll tarp, curtain side, and more. The Trucker Series of ladders feature plank steps and a pivoting bottom step, and fold up compactly for storage and mobility. Additional ANSI rated Trucker ladders include a shorter two step ladder and longer four step ladder, originally designed for crane trucks.
Mounting options include the ‘unbreakable’ CNC mounting hooks for positioning in the stake rack or rub rails, steel brackets when stake pockets are unavailable, and permanent deck mounting. Featuring a compact fold together design, The Trucker® ladders can be equipped with lockable storage racks, and flatbed work platforms are available to provide additional fall protection safety.
