Our company-wide mission

is to dramatically reduce the number of injuries and fatalities in steep-slope roofing applications. We've done three years of field testing and market research with professionals from many industries to bring to you the premium, all-in-one safety device of the residential, steep-slope roofing market. Compared to our competitors, no other steep-assist tool has integrated rope-and-harness utilization, adjustable pitch-specific customization (covering the vast majority of residential roof surfaces encountered), conversion ability to become an anchorage point, and a simplified assembly that makes it convenient to use on every job. We work diligently to satisfy each of our customers and to adapt to their ever-changing needs. The RIDGEPRO™ offers unmatched versatility and durability and will save your life for years to come.


 

Our campaign is "Ladder-to-Ladder Safety"

Every year around the world, hundreds of people are injured or killed from improper safety devices, from improper safety training, or from lack of implementing a safety plan.

The RIDGEPRO™ is a premium, professional-grade tool which acts as a one-time insurance premium, paying for itself many times over in its lifetime by preventing accidental falls. Similar devices from competitors require extensive assembly or are very heavy and cumbersome alternatives. The RIDGEPRO™ was engineered to be simplistic in design and maneuverable over varying surfaces that a roofing professional is likely to encounter.

It's innovation is in its simplicity. First, the arch of The RIDGEPRO™ clears the ridge vent at the peak. Similar devices don't take this into account. Second, you can connect to the peak from the ladder, by attaching an extension pole and pushing The RIDGEPRO™ up the roof surface. Until now, installing any safety device at the peak meant dragging up a large roof ladder or stepping onto the roof surface unassisted and making a run for top. Third, a rope-and-harness connect directly to The RIDGEPRO™ prior to installation, offering you a connected lanyard to hold onto when dismounting the ladder. Fourth, The RIDGEPRO™ can be installed to do either a quick inspection or can be bolted down to act an anchorage point. Finally, we added sponge-rubber pads to the cross members so that existing surface material would not be damaged.


 

Professionals don't use fall protection every single time - until now

It doesn't take a lot of research to find that the majority of falls happen because professionals were not tied off at the moment of the occurrence. We wanted to design a device simple enough that encouraged users to install it every single time they were on a steep-slope surface.


 

Compare us to the competition

We took a hard look at all the competitors out there, and there are a lot. Similar devices require extensive assembly or are very heavy and cumbersome alternatives. The RIDGEPRO™ was engineered to be simplistic in design and maneuverable over varying surfaces that a roofing professional may encounter. In fact, some users like The RIDGEPRO™ to simply get to the peak where they can then install their favorite permanent anchoring device to do their work.
