A headache rack helps keep passengers in a truck cab safe from the cargo in the bed of the truck as well as protecting the load itself. Custom built headache racks can also help you avoid numerous problems by making it easier to transport specific types of freight. Here are some benefits of a rack you should know about.
Of course, a major reason people install custom made headache racks is to make it easier to transport cargo safely. With a custom rack, you can easily secure awkward items like ladders, tool boxes, or other heavy cargo without worrying about it sliding into your back window and breaking it.
When you choose a custom rack, you can have your company logo added to boost advertising potential with your company truck. This advertisement is more than a simple sticker added to the rack; you can actually get the logo cut out of metal and powder coated in specific colors to make it look clean and professional.
You can customize your headache rack to fit your personal tastes and needs by adding other accessories at the time it’s ordered. Most are fully integrated and permanent additions ready for use when you are. You can choose auxiliary lighting, grab handles, lumber stops, and other accessories to make your rack more functional and better looking.
Another important thing to consider is how practical a headache rack is, especially compared to other full-size equipment racks. A rack tailored to fit behind the cab protects the bed and body of your track from dents and dings if your load shifts around. It's also easier to maneuver your truck with this type of rack, because you don't have to worry about clearance when going in garages or parking structures. There are different styles you can choose from to ensure the practicality you need without reducing visibility out the back window.
