    Default Alaco Wooden Roof Ladder

    I am having a hard time finding the rating in lbs. on the roof hooks for an Alaco 14' roof ladder. If anyone knows what the roof hooks are rated at I would greatly appreciate it. Alaco makes wooden ladders for alot of departments in california and used to make all wooden fire ladders for u.s. back in the day. LA City/LA County are the biggest dept's using alaco.

    Have you tried contacting the manufacturer directly?

    unfortunately I got my research done for my drill and then just realized that I do not know the actual rating for the hooks. Alaco is closed on weekends. I was able to find out that roof hooks are tested at 2000 lbs after 1984.
