There are numerous ways in which we can now enhance the stability of ladders.
Adding a bracket to the top or bottom of a ladder will increase the overall stability greatly. The Working at Height regulations requests that we use stability devices where practicable to do so. SCHEDULE 6 REQUIREMENTS FOR LADDERS 5. A portable ladder shall be prevented from slipping during use by - a) securing the stiles at or near their upper or lower ends; b) an effective anti-slip or other effective stability device; or c) any other arrangement of equivalent effectiveness.
SPECIFICATIONS Ladders Ladders manufactured from hollow seamless Aluminium extrusions with radiused corners for extra strength. Sizes vary in depth and width according to size of ladder.

For a ladder to fully comply and be kitemarked to BS EN 131 the ladder must have a base width greater than the standard width of its stiles (to a max of 1.2mtr) if it is over three metres in extended length. This means the addition of a base bar on our products. due to demand we do not fit base bars as standard so if require a fully Kitemarked product please request this when ordering.

SPECIFICATIONS Materials Used Steps are manufactured from ERW tube to BS6323 PARTS-ERW1-KM.The materials used in this range are recyclable. Together with our environmentally-friendly processes and practices we are consciously working towards a greener future for our customers, our community and ourselves. Unique Safety Barrier The Klime-Ezee 5 - 15 and E-Series 5 - 15 Tread steps are immobilised by a patented central fail-safe retractor mechanism which, when operated, performs the dual function of both acting as a braking system and at the same time forming a 'NO ACCESS' barrier across the steps, thus protecting the safety and welfare of your operative when using the equipment. The retractor gate is designed to lock the handle in position and is extremely light and easy to operate. The KE5 & KE6 have 2 x 100mm dia. rear wheels and a single front retractable castor. The KE7-KE15 steps have 2 x 120mm dia. rear wheels and 2 retractable front castors which are lifted from the floor by use of a centrally mounted 'Access Barrier' retractor handle, thus allowing the two large steel feet to impact with the floor to give maximum stability to your operator. The amply sized top platform with kicking flat makes order picking, shelf access or maintenance both comfortable and safe. Tread Types We offer two types of tread for our standard range of steps. They are manufactured from steel to BS1449 PART 1 1983 CR4. All treads give maximum grip in any environment. 'M' Tread - Multi-Pattern pierced and raised metal tread. 'P' Tread - PVC Anti-Slip covered metal tread. Paint Finish The finishing processes employed are universally applied in strict accordance with the manufacturers' guidelines. Our standard paint finish is applied using a reliable and efficient Electrostatic Paint Process. All products will be painted Pacific Blue as standard or Signal Red if requested. Other colours can be supplied at extra cost. Step Mobility All our steps are fitted with rubber-tyred wheels and castors, providing easy control and mobility. Indeed, a force of only 5-10Kg is required to move our steps. Customers will note that this is well below the 25Kg force determined by Health & Safety Executive.
