A drop down ladder rack is a device that is specifically designed for use on vans and other types of vehicles. It is mounted on the roof of the van and consists of a frame with a pair of arms that can be raised and lowered as needed. The ladder rack is used to hold and transport ladders, pipes, or other long items on the roof of the van, freeing up space inside the vehicle for other equipment and materials. The arms of the ladder rack are typically adjusted to fit the length of the ladder and may have rubber or foam padding to protect the ladder from damage. Drop down ladder racks are useful for contractors, painters, and other professionals who need to transport ladders and other long items on a regular basis.
