Our Warehouse Steps comprise of quality mobile safety steps that will help your workplace to run smoothly and effectively.

Within our range of Mobile Warehouse Steps, we’ve got something for every warehouse or stockroom size. No matter what height you need to reach, we can help you get there. Mobile steps are ideal for safely carrying out maintenance, picking stock and getting to those hard to reach spots all around the workplace.

We have a variety of different mobile warehouse ladders to choose from. You’ll find we offer a few tread options, heights of just two treads all the way up to eighteen and much more.

What are the most important features of Warehouse Steps?

Mobile Steps

Consider the quality and safety capabilities of the castors attached to mobile safety steps. Fixed castors are cost effective but are also more likely to move on some gradients and shiny floors. A effective solution to this is using heavy duty, spring loaded castors. These are designed to safely lower when a weight is applied and rise again to make the steps mobile again. This retractable mechanism also prevents “surfing” as the steps will not glide once any weight is applied. The pressed steel guard dome turns into a stabilising foot when retracted and also protects the castors from damage.

Safety Working at Height

When working at height, safety is the main concern. Handrails and handles are often used on warehouse steps to form an effective barrier. The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) have guidelines on mobile step regulations and working at height - handrails help mobile steps to meet these guidelines. Handrails allow the user to maintain the recommended three points of contact with the mobile steps at all times. Mobile platform steps with a large work platform use the rail to ensure safety when working at height. With extra platform space these are ideal for unloading directly from a lorry without its own lowering platform and safely performing maintenance work. The platform gives steps a big advantage over traditional ladder for carrying out work at height for extended periods of time.

Steel Mesh or Anti-Slip Rubber Treads?

This largely comes down to the environment you work in, the footwear you use each day and what products you have to ‘pick’. A mesh tread has some anti-slip properties as the soles of work boots can grip the mesh creating a stable footing. Steps with rubber treads are the most stable and reliable as the anti-slip surface is uninterrupted across the whole of the step allowing the most grip.

EN131 and Class 1 Certified Mobile Warehouse Steps

EN131 is the updated European (including the UK) safety classification. It is a ladder classification that applies to commercial and trade work up to a maximum operating weight of 150kg, including the weight of the person and the package they are picking.

Many of our Mobile Warehouse Steps meet the requirements for EN or Class 1 certification, which the British Standards HSE recommend when purchasing mobile steps for a industrial and trade use. These certifications ensure that the maximum load allowance and overall quality is thoroughly tested and more than adequate. Look out for these classifications if you need a trade quality set of steps.

Our UK manufactured Classic Warehouse Steps BS Range is an example of safety steps which have been rigorously tested and certified to EN 131. They have also been awarded the British Standard Kitemark. 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.
