SLATOR Roof Bracket
Our patented Slator roof bracket gives you quick easy and safer access to many difficult locations on a roof.
The Slator bracket is extremely popular with slate roofers and installers of steep pitch standing seam roofs. Metal roof installers use the (2) Slators to hold a (2) adjacent ladders on the roof next to the panel being installed. This allows them to work their way along the roof simply by moving the Slators and the roof ladders. This method is preferred to using ridge hooks because ridge hooks dent/scratch the metal roof on the opposite side.
Similar to air conditioning. once you've used Slators, you'll never want to go back to the way things were before.
Each SLATOR bracket comes with enough fasteners for 1 installation and a 5/16" hex driver.
The SLATOR conforms with OSHA 1926, 1910 requirements for fall protection when installed and used according to the instructions. It fastens to a steep slate, asphalt shingle or cedar shake roof and firmly clamps a ladder into position, allowing tradesman easier and safer access to perform their work. Used properly, the SLATOR will help protect the roof from wear and tear, save you time, energy, and perhaps, your life. Watch the tutorials and gain easier and safer access to do your best work safely.

With the low profile copper and bronze flashing kit and cap, it's an attractive long term solution for roof safety.
Working smart right? Yes and no. Sure, that's smart and ridge hooks and ladders have been used for decades, however . . . as soon as you've used the ladder in a manner not intended or designed by the manufacturer, then you've just violated OSHA's 1910 rules on ladders. Everyone who can read and takes the time to examine any extension ladder, also knows that they were not originally intended to be used separately, or . . . on a roof. Are 50,000 roofers and painters wrong in doing so? No, of course not. Just be prepared, have a plan and train your team. Labeling and training are extremely important for worker safety. OSHA cares about worker safety and will ask for documentation of that training as well as proper labeling. We have decals and training programs that can help your team.
I am writing you about our recent purchase of your ingenious product The Slator. Our foreman was ecstatic after using it for the first time. His comments were “I wish I had a set 25 years ago”. It has definitely made his job easier and safer. Roofing is a by nature a hazardous profession. I have been in the roofing business for 35 years and it is not too often that a safety product comes along that truly makes the job safer, is easy to work with and the roofers actually like using it. The Slator does all this. Thank you for this product; we will be ordering more for our shingle crews as well.
