WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES OF WAREHOUSE STEPS?

In addition their unique design ensures steps can be to the desired location with ease. Also in our mobile safety steps range, there are different mobility options with individual steps. From push & tilt steps to the classic castor option. Each industrial mobile safety step can be configured to suit personal requirements.
Safety Working at Height
As previously mentioned, our warehouse steps can reach heights of 5m. Accidents can happen. Our first concern is to ensure our mobile steps include key features to prevent these. You will see double handrails, handles and break handles which provide protection as well as regulation to HSE guidelines.
Steel Mesh or Anti-Slip Rubber Treads?
Which is the better option, Mesh or Rubber treads? The influencing factor comes down to the environment your working in and footwear. A mesh tread offers some anti-slip properties. As the soles of work boots grip the mesh, creating a stable footing. However if required our anti-slip treads offer an excellent slip resistant surface.
IMPORTANT WAREHOUSE STEPS REGULATIONS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT!
When purchasing mobile warehouse steps, there are a set of regulations that you need to be aware of. EN131 is the updated European (Including the UK) safety classification for warehouse steps. This classification applies to commercial and trade ladders operating weights of 150kg. It's important to note that this includes the weight of the person and package they're picking. Many of our safety steps meet the requirements for EN131 or Class 1 certification. So your mind will be at rest whilst using them at height. British Standard HSE recommend if purchasing warehouse steps to look for these standards.
A example of EN131 classified steps are our Classic Warehouse Steps BS Range. They've been awarded the British Standard Kitemark when tested to certify EN Standards. This is for the quality of rungs, stile and connection strength, and stability. They are an easy to use and reliable warehouse ladder solution, complete with a handrail.
