Swabian Chamber of Commerce and Industry

Innovator of the Year 2017

The product innovation: With the "clip-step R13" step padding for step ladders, the highest level of slip resistance (slip class R13) can be achieved as standard on step ladders for the first time. With a certified R13 covering. The innovation was designed especially so that the product is available as an original feature on the ladder ex works, but can also be retrofitted to existing ladders. Easy and without tools. Clip-step R13 makes using a step ladder significantly safer, while accidents at work are reduced or avoided altogether. Clip-step R13: a product feature that does not redefine the ladder, but rather safety when working with ladders.

Industry Prize 2017 - Best of

FlexxStep platform ladder - the stable aluminium design in industrial quality Made in Germany and with a 15-year quality guarantee - offers edged rungs, providing a safe ascent to the spacious standing platform and significantly increases safety at work. FlexxStep allows comfortable and safe working on the spacious platform, which also has space for tools and equipment. With its railing on 4 sides, it also offers secure "all-round protection", similar to a "working cage". It was important to develop a practicable and flexible solution for working at height, which offers all the advantages of a flexible, mobile and quickly ready to use ladder, but meets the requirements of the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health which prescribes the use of work equipment with platforms for longer periods of work.  FlexxStep is equipped with a handrail, railing and knee rail for safe walking and standing. The self-closing safety doors are this platform ladder's safety highlight. With integrated transport rollers, the FlexxStep platform stairs can be easily moved to the next place of work or simply stowed compactly, thanks to its handy folding mechanism. With the flexible telescopic part, FlexxStep can be extended, height-adjusted and climbed in just a few actions without any need for tools. Available with 4, 5 or 6 rungs.
