We’re an Australian owned and run company that wants every ladder user to have a safe experience when working at heights.
The Lacket Company was formed in 2015, when two mates (a Paramedic and an Engineer) discovered that there were no simple, practical ways to secure an extension ladder in order to prevent the ladder from slipping or falling.
As they witnessed an increase in the number of hospitalisations due to falls from ladders, the developers wanted to look at the problem from another perspective. After researching products currently available in the market, they quickly realised that all the options were impractical, dangerous and didn’t actually secure the ladder to a stable structure. The biggest problem they found was the need to secure the ladder prior to climbing it, as many of the currently available options require the operator to climb an unsecured ladder in order to secure it.
After almost three years of research, design, development and testing, what evolved was the most innovative ladder safety attachment that met the shortcomings of anything else on the market. Because this safety attachment caused the ladder to be as stable as though it was bolted to the building with a bracket, it was named The Lacket.
We hope that you get to experience the confidence that The Lacket will give you as you climb your extension ladder.
The Lacket Company is proudly based in the Illawarra, and intends to remain a local business for many years to come.
In October 2017, The Lacket Company was proud to receive the SafeWork NSW Award for Best Solution To An Identified Workplace Health And Safety Issue for small business!
