Businesses who keep their goods or products in storage or warehouse facilities need to have safe and ready access to stock when the orders come in. Depending on the height of shelves or their layout, there are a range of steps that will be just right for the job. Here are the five main types of steps to consider:SUPER 123 BOLTLESS SHELVING
Kick steps are ideal for reaching stock that is at shoulder height or above and are often a good choice for a small retailer who keeps supplies on site, where space may be limited. Made from steel or plastic and mounted on castors, kick stools are broad based and stable and can be easily stored when not in use.
If space is tight and you’ve put up shelving to make the most of the room you’ve got, handy steps are a good choice for accessing stock. The range includes sturdy steel step ups, with a rubber platform that can support up to 150kg, and they are nestable for handy storage. Handy steps also come in tough plastic, and in a choice of bright colours.
Ladders and steps
When it comes to more frequent use and reaching up higher, there’s a wide range of ladders and steps to choose from, including smaller, folding steps, double side picking steps, telescopic ladders and ladders that come with integrated tool trays and bucket hooks. Made from lightweight aluminium, tubular steel, or glass fibre, these steps and ladders are designed for regular use.
One of the main benefits of mobile steps is that they have wheels and are easy to get them to where they’re needed most. This style of step is suited to larger storage facilities where staff may be doing regular retrieval of goods that is located at varying heights. Available in numerous sizes, mobile steps are sturdy and provide excellent safety.
Work platforms come in wide range of shapes and sizes, including modular designs so that several platforms can be used together to create a solid, extended base to work from. Work platforms, made from steel or aluminium, are also a great choice for professional builders, painters and decorators, or the amateur home builder.RETAIL SHELVING
