What Smart Ladder Rest Users Say
“My job includes inspecting our contractors’ roofing work, so I’ve personally used a contractor-installed [Smart Ladder Rest] many times. [Smart Ladder Rest] eliminates the possibility of the top of the ladder slipping sideways. The contractors I work with are very concerned with job safety and are always trying to improve safety procedures. Not having a solid anchor point for the top of the ladder has always been a safety concern without a foolproof solution. [Smart Ladder Rest] is the solution.”
– Jon Stafford, Duro-Last Roofing, Inc.
“I’m the maintenance supervisor for 26 convenience stores and our corporate buildings. It’s my responsibility to see that our guys do things in ways that are OSHA approved. We’ve had [Smart Ladder Rest] installed with several roofing jobs. Our guys and the HVAC contractors who have to go up on our roofs really like [Smart Ladder Rest], because they don’t have to climb the ladder before securing it to the roof. The ladder is secure before you leave the ground. It can’t slip sideways or downward. It’s simple and easy. I’m looking forward to seeing [Smart Ladder Rest] installed on all our stores.”
– Dan Walton, Schmuckal Oil Co.
“We decided to install a good ladder-safety system after one of our custodians was injured when a ladder slid out from under him. We looked at other ways, but [Smart Ladder Rest] made the most sense. We installed 26 of them on our buildings, so easy installation was important. It works with different ladder sizes. It’s visually unobtrusive, and since we have kids who try to find ways to get on top of our buildings, we can’t have permanent ladders on our walls. Our maintenance staff really likes [Smart Ladder Rest]. It’s a solid, simple, easy solution for ladder safety.”
– Paul Thwing, Director of Capital Projects and Maintenance, Traverse City Area Public Schools
A portion of the profits from Smart Ladder Rest sales will be donated to The Rock Youth Center in Kingsley, MI.
