Monkeyrack Ladder Stabilizer Earns Best of Bradenton Safety Equipment Award
BRADENTON, Fla., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Monkeyrack Products LLC, (MONKEYRACK) announced today they have been recognized with a Best of Bradenton Award in the Safety Category for the development of the Monkeyrack Ladder Stabilizer System (LSS). With almost a decade of exhaustive testing and field deployments, the Monkeyrack ladder stabilizer has been designed to enhance ladder safety by securing an extension ladder to a vehicle receiver hitch and leverage over 2-tons of vehicle weight as a stabilizing force. The Monkeyrack ladder stabilizer provides unparalleled stability that cannot be matched in the marketplace.
"The use of extension ladders continues to be the most commonly used tool at worksites and commercial facilities, yet it remains the most misused piece of equipment and the leading cause of workplace accidents. Statistics clearly validate that of the 4,690 work-related fatalities in 2010, 14% (697) were directly attributable to falls; and in many cases, a 'shift', 'slip' or kick-out of the ladder can easily result in a fall, injury or death," states Julie Spicer, President of Monkeyrack Products LLC. She adds, "We've designed an industrial strength ladder stabilization system that creates a bond between the ladder and the vehicle; and a 4,000 pound vehicle provides an impressive amount of stabilization for an extension ladder."
Initially developed in 2006 and awarded a utility patent in 2011, the Monkeyrack ladder stabilizer has undergone extensive field testing and implementation with a number of safety focused organizations. The Monkeyrack LSS efficiently provides mobility and uniquely attaches at the ground level to achieve a vital safety bond during installation. The Monkeyrack LSS is OSHA and ANSI compliant for commercial worksite applications when used within the manufacturer's guidelines. The American-Made Monkeyrack LSS satisfies and exceeds regulatory compliance, addresses predictive maintenance necessities, addresses preventative maintenance requirements, and complements emergency response needs.
The Monkeyrack has been identified as a viable safety solution for communications and electrical utility companies that often encounter rotting and damaged poles during routine maintenance. The Monkeyrack ladder stabilizer will be exhibited to industrial professionals at the Central Florida Building & Facility Maintenance Show, on Oct 30, 2013, from 9:00am to 2:00pm at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, FL; and at the South Florida Building & Facility Maintenance Show, on Nov 13, 2013, from 9:00am to 3:00pm in Ft Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, Ft Lauderdale, FL.
