LadderTech Announces Sheetz, Inc. Has Added Installation of LadderPort(TM) Ladder Receivers & Cranky Portable Winch Systems as Part of Their Ongoing Commitment to Safety

Brighton, MI - LadderTech announces Sheetz, Inc. of Altoona, PA has selected the LadderPort Ladder Receiver (Patent Pending) and Cranky Portable Winch (Patent Pending) system for installation on their convenience store locations. The LadderPort Ladder Receiver will help keep their maintenance technicians and outside contractor's safe and injury free when roof access is required.

Michele Oras, LadderTech Operations Manager said, "Sheetz is repeatedly ranked as one of the "Best Places to Work", which is not surprising given their commitment to safety. LadderTech is proud to be associated with them."

LadderPort(TM) Ladder Receiver, a less expensive, safer alternative to permanently mounted vertical ladders, permanently mounts to the building and holds an extension ladder firmly in place, keeping the ladder from falling, even on icy surfaces. Since the extension ladder is removed when the LadderPort(TM) Ladder Receiver is not in use, vandals and thieves lose the easy roof access available when a permanent mount ladder is installed.

The Cranky Portable winch system lifts items weighing up to 300 lbs. on and off the roof, reducing back and other types of employee injuries often associated with lifting. "Cranky" Portable Winch slips on and off the building's permanently mounted support post, allowing service technicians to carry it from job to job or attach it to the "Cranky" Truck Mount Assembly.

Founded in 2004, LadderTech's mission to fill the void in roof access safety. LadderTech's LadderPort Ladder Receiver and Cranky Portable Winch system was invented by a mechanical contractor after realizing the need to fill the void in roof access and extension ladder safety. LadderTech manufactures a full line of Ladder Safety Products including Roof Hatch Safety Grab Bars, LadderPort(TM) Ladder Receiver, Parapet Back Ladder System and Cranky Portable Winch system. All LadderTech, LLC products are designed and manufactured in Brighton, MI.
