The type of construction you should choose depends on how you intend to use your ladder rack. If you plan to buy a rack system that can be dismantled when you don't need it, and you anticipate setting up and taking down the rack frequently, you will probably benefit most from a lightweight rack that is easier to handle. However, if you intend to set your rack up once and never take it down, and you plan on carrying heavy loads, you will want to ignore the rack's weight altogether and focus your attention instead at the load capacity for each rack you are considering.
Ladder racks now offer a variety of choices for setup. Racks were traditionally bolted down, so once they were installed they were left there permanently. However, more temporary -- yet still secure -- methods of installation are now used.
