Roof-Loading With Ease

Material hoists, also known as laddervators, are used to lift materials and tools up to heights. Made so workers don't need to climb up ladders with materials--violating OSHA laws--they are a safe alternative to roof loading. Safety Hoist Company have been leaders in laddervators for over 55 years. Our gas and electric units are easy to use without any training.

4 Reasons to Use a Hoist:


Material hoists require very little room to operate and fit right in your truck easily. They also are not super heavy and can easily be moved around by just one or two workers.


Material hoists are meant to speed up the job process. They take under 10 minutes to set up and require just one professional to operate (and they don't require special training either).


Unlike boom trucks, material hoists allow you to book jobs on your own schedule without relying on another company's availability, especially during busy season.


When crews can't get roof-loaded, they'll sometimes opt to carry materials up themselves, violating OSHA. Material hoists protect against this and keep your team safe.

What Sets Safety Hoist Apart?

Constant Innovation

Our patented electric hoist was the first of its kind. Not only is it the only one that can lift 500 lbs, but it's also the safest one, too. Safety Hoists have more add-ons than any other laddervator, allowing workers to do more. As your crew runs into problems on the job, we'll be there to find the solutions.

Highest Quality

Our hoists are made in the USA using only high quality parts. Our competitors cannot say the same. In fact, most of their parts are from outside the country and don’t come close to Safety Hoist quality. Laddervators are an investment, so why not invest in the best?

Ready to Ship

Other material hoists manufacturers are often not helpful after the sale. And to make matters worse, they take up to 90 days to build and ship their hoists. When you buy your hoist, you want it ASAP. That's why we keep inventory in stock and offer same-day shipping on all laddervator orders and parts.
