In the trades, stepladders are versatile climbing aids for working at low heights. They are also used in the warehouse. You can set up these useful helpers wherever you need them. Whether it’s a wooden stepladder or an aluminium folding ladder you need, KAISER+KRAFT is bound to have the design you’re looking for and exactly the right model – for more stability and safety in everyday work.
Stepladders – for a safe footing
Stepladders make working at heights of up to 4 metres safe to do. Whether for occasional use in the office, at warehouse shelving units, or for construction and assembly: choose between models that you can step onto from one side or both sides according to your needs. From small folding ladders that can be used as a stable set of steps to stepladders with 8 steps or more – the range of products in the KAISER+KRAFT webshop is wide ranging.
Properties of stepladders
The stability of a folding ladder is a crucial point for employee safety in both the trades and in warehouses. The triangular shape prevents a stepladder that has been set up properly from tipping over. When getting it ready for use, make sure that the metal or fabric strap is tensioned when the ladder is folded apart. Plastic ladder shoes provide additional grip for the climbing aid – ensuring it won’t slip on the floor.
Practical features of folding ladders
Along with the stability of a stepladder, textured step surfaces ensure users aren’t at risk of slipping. Padded front edges on the steps protect knees and shins when leaning in. The practical climbing aids also have a high load bearing capacity – heavy duty models even have a max. load of up to 250 kg. At the same time, they are light in weight, allowing a stepladder made of aluminium or GRP to be set up and moved around by one person.
Depending on the model, the range of different of types in our product range offer specific, additional benefits due to their special properties: stepladders with castors and ergonomically shaped handrails increase safety when working in the warehouse. Other models have a fold-out storage tray for tools or buckets – particularly practical when doing odd jobs or painting work.
