Even The Toughest of Us Dread "The Black Hole"

Is there anyone that says, “I can’t wait to climb through the roof hatch?”  Time and time again, our customers call it the “dreaded black hole.”  It is especially dangerous in rain, wind, and snow. There are many horror stories about smashed hands, broken knees, and horrific falls all because the roof hatch did not have proper safety protection.

In the past, the main product for providing some type of hand hold was a ladder up type post.  Although still in use, safety products have advanced substantially.  While the ladder post provided a hand hold, our customers have often complained that it takes up foot space on the ladder, requires two hands to put it up and down and has mechanical parts to fail. Many admit to never using it because it is just too “cumbersome.”  Additionally, in many cases it does not meet the often-enforced OSHA Walking-Working surface rule.

There are better solutions.
OSHA Compliant LadderPort Roof Hatch Grab Bars may be the best.

LadderPort offers two types of Roof Hatch Grab Bars – Caged and no Cage both meeting OSHA requirements.
