Weather Guard announced the new 1175-52-02 Heavy Duty Steel Truck Rack designed for contractors, tradesmen, and remodelers
“We know that professionals are carrying more materials to improve their productivity and saw an opportunity to add an evenly distributed, 1,700 lbs. capacity heavy-duty steel truck rack to the market,” said Mike Bykowski, Director of Product Management at Weather Guard. “The new Heavy Duty Steel Truck Rack offers the industry’s first Rear Rolling Cross Member, which allows for easier loading from the tailgate position.”
The Heavy Duty Steel Truck Rack is ideal for demanding users, including general contractors, tradesmen, and electricians.
Rated to hold up to 1,700 pounds (when evenly distributed), the 1175-52-02 is designed to accommodate three ladders side by side, maximizing space and capacity. Weather Guard backs up the build quality with a best-in-class limited lifetime warranty.
Manufactured from steel and weighing in at 220 pounds, the Weather Guard Heavy Duty Steel Truck Rack is built for a heavy workload. The steel rack is powder coated in a durable matte black finish, and the rack itself is made from two-inch swaged steel tubing welded with overlapping joints to provide extra strength.
Built to be “one size fits all,” the singular model comes equipped with adjustable front mounting legs and mounting feet.
The Weather Guard Heavy Duty Steel Truck Rack is the only model in its class to include welded airfoil to reduce wind noise. This rack also comes equipped with rear handlebars to aid users as they climb into the truck bed and oversized hooks at the eight tie-down points.
Available accessories include: ratchet straps for securing cargo, a bolt-on accessory cross member for carrying shorter items, cab protectors, and the industry’s first Rear Rolling Cross Member to provide easier loading from the tailgate.
The Heavy Duty Steel Truck Rack is made to fit any truck bed length from 78 to 96 inches and can be installed with a true no-drill process. The truck rack can be assembled on the ground prior to being lifted onto the truck for mounting.
The Weather Guard Heavy Duty Steel Truck Rack is now available nationally. The universal design is compatible with most heavy-duty, North American truck models.
