Anyone who has to work at a particular height in the warehouse for a long time and may also need additional staff, aids or tools close at hand will be well advised to use a platform ladder, work platform or assembly step. Thanks to the large platform, which serves completely as a working surface, it is also possible to work comfortably at the desired height for longer periods of time. However, the aluminium platform ladders shown here offer much more than just compliance with the applicable standard for ladders EN 131: integrated handrails and guardrails ensure particularly safe working. What’s more: work platforms or platform ladders with castors are also super easy to be moved to a new place of work.
All of our ladders comply with the applicable statutory provisions (e.g. EN 131).
Safe and relaxed working on the platform ladder
Mobile platform ladders made of light aluminium with three to eight steps and a working height between 2.70m and 3.90m, which can be accessed from one side, complete our range of ladders. Handrails, as stipulated by DIN EN 131-7 from a platform height of one metre, can also be ordered as accessories. This ensures that a wide range of applications which require the use of both hands over a longer period of time can be carried out in a safe working environment.
Advantages of the platform ladder at a glance
Where stepladders, single ladders or rack ladders aren’t fit for purpose and an assembly step does not reach the required working height, platform ladders come into their own: the platform ladder combines the characteristics of a ladder and a scaffold. It far surpasses stepladders, single ladders and rack ladders in terms of stability. This is ensured by sufficiently wide steps or stairs, special guardrails and a second handrail. The work platform of the platform ladder is a great work surface or ideal to store required material or equipment. Even activities that last longer can be carried out comfortably on platform ladders. Due to the low weight and the four swivel castors (two lockable), the lightweight aluminium platform ladder can be transported quickly and effortlessly to the next place of use.
Virtually unlimited applications
Platform ladders are ideal in warehouses or storerooms as well as in construction and when using heavy-duty racking, pallet racks and storage racks, for example during maintenance work or stock-taking, for decorating or varnishing work or for cleaning purposes. The only prerequisite for the use of a platform ladder is the suitable condition of the ground: the floor must not be uneven, slippery or flexible.
