Our range includes foot lock functions, easy slopes plus many are suitable for narrow aisles and portable and plastic solutions too. The stainless steel steps are made with a fully steel welded framework and are built with anti-slip tread surfaces resistant to water, oil and most chemicals. These products are easy to clean and hygienic and are built with spring loaded castors. The foot lock feature has a simple foot lock operation to mobilise and immobilise the steps. Most of our mobile range is fitted with handrails on either side of the steps to make it the optimum unit in comparison to a traditional ladder.

Interesting facts about safety steps
Aircraft safety steps are more elaborate versions of their commercial and industrial cousins, but essentially have the same features. However, safety features on aircraft steps are usually enhanced to a level that makes them usable by anyone – just like ordinary stairs. This is done because users of aircraft steps may not be trained in safety practices, as industrial workers invariably are. But, it is still dangerous to treat these like regular stairs, which is why airlines always have one person standing at the top and one at the bottom of the steps at all times when the steps are in use by passengers.
