Storing the ladder on a ceiling rack is a perfect idea, so long as you have a step ladder to get it down. You can hang the step ladder on a wall hook, and put the bigger ladder away and out of sight in the ceiling rack.
My favorite ceiling rack for this job is the Store Your Board Hi-Port Ceiling Rack. It’s easy to install, it’s a simple design. You can use the Hi-Port to store two ladders up to 30 inches and 75 lb. per each.
For instance, a Louisville 32 ft. compacts down to 29 ft. when in storage mode. The ladder weighs 59 lb., and is only 18 inches wide. The 18 inch width easily fits in the 30 inch rack. The storage rack’s 75 lb. capacity easily handles the 59 lb. ladder.
DOUBLE YOUR CEILING STORAGE: 2 sided rack gives you twice the storage capacity; HEAVY DUTY STEEL: built to hold up to 150lbs (75 lbs per side) total for multiple ladders
