Our industrial warehouse steps are ideal for reaching heights of up to 5m in a selection of working environments. Included within our range are a selection of warehouse steps that comply to BS and EN 131 standards to ensure safety requirements are met. With a range of warehouse steps to decipher from, we have created an easy guide to help you pick the right steps!
WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES OF WAREHOUSE STEPS?
Warehouse steps are configured to a range of requirements, one being mobility. Ideal for fast paced environments such as warehouses, factories or offices, their unique design ensures steps can be to the desired location with ease. Included in our range of mobile warehouse steps, there are different mobility options with individual steps. From push & tilt steps to the classic castor option, each 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. With the possibility of potential accidents, our main concern is ensuring all of our mobile steps include key features to prevent accidents. You will notice handrails, handles and break handles to provide users with much needed 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 largely comes down to the environment your working in and footwear employee's wear. A mesh tread offers some anti-slip properties as the soles of work boots grip the mesh, creating a stable footing. However if you require further anti-slip properties, our anti-slip treads offer an excellent slip resistant surface.
IMPORTANT WAREHOUSE STEPS REGULATIONS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT!
When purchasing mobile warehouse steps, they 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, which puts your mind at rest whilst using them whilst at height. The British Standard HSE recommend when purchasing warehouse steps to look out for these set of standards.
A perfect example of EN131 classified warehouse steps are our Classic Warehouse Steps BS Range. Whilst going through rigours tests to certify to EN standards, they were 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.
