There are many occasions in the house and outside where you may need a ladder. On the wide steps of this safety ladder, you will stand in as stable and comfortable a position as on a brick staircase. The steps consist of deep-drawn, overturned checker plates with checkers consisting of five conically tapered grooves that are pressed in under high pressure by forming rolls in the so-called quintet pattern. The solid foldable retaining rail is exclusively made for Manufactum out of one single piece of aluminum. It ensures a safe hold when standing on the upper step. The rail is stable enough to lean against it with the whole body weight. Plastic non-slip safety shoes beneath the side rails prevent the ladder from sliding and protect the underground. All load-bearing parts are reinforced to have adequate tensile and compressive strength. For decades, the very durable ladder has successfully proven itself in daily strenuous permanent use in industry, business and trade. Due to its solid construction and the exceptional material thickness – although made of aluminum – it weighs no less than 8.3 kg, which is significantly more than other ladders of this type. Thanks to its low depth of only 11.5 cm, the handy ladder can be stored in a cupboard or be leaned against a wall (in a storeroom, cellar or garage).
