Weather Guard Ladder Racks and Accessories
Established in 1960, Knaack LLC was the first to offer national distribution of job site storage boxes in Chicago, Detroit, Hammond, Cleveland, Hammond, Denver and Washington D.C. In 1968, Knaack LLC acquired the WEATHER GUARD® Truck Equipment brand from a small sheet metal company in St. Louis.
In the early 80s, major additions were made to the WEATHER GUARD Truck and Van Storage Equipment lines. In truck equipment, saddle boxes, super lo-side boxes, and super side boxes were added to the truck equipment line along with an expanded line of underbed boxes and truck ladder racks. In van equipment, the line was expanded to include knockdown shelving, small and medium-size parts bins, expanded ladder rack offerings and also an expanded bulkhead offering. This product expansion enabled the company to expand its base of users to include municipalities, utilities, fleets, etc.
Major additions were made to the WEATHER GUARD Truck and Van Storage Equipment lines through the years as business grew dramatically. More recently, WEATHER GUARD launched an entirely redesigned van solutions line, made for the way today's trade professionals work. Truck Boxes were also recently redesigned to increase security, safety, and durability for its end users, setting the brand aside from its competitors.
In September 2012, Knaack LLC was acquired by Werner Co. Werner is well known as the number one choice of professionals for its wide variety of high-quality ladders and fall protection equipment.
