Mobile stairs, portable stairs and stainless steel ladders – access solutions for industry and construction

Article by Tim Bridges

Mobile stairs, rolling ladders, portable stairs or mobile steps, whatever your preferred terminology are pretty much the same thing all rolled (pardon the pun) into one; for industrial sites, manufacturing plants and construction sites there are hundreds of variations on a theme, and indeed there are also many times where a customized set of stairs is required as a solution to a singular yet ongoing access issue. Every set of mobile stair ways and ladders are manufactured to strict safety guidelines, the castors or wheels which it will be rolled along on will be of the lockable variety, with most having a two way locking mechanism.

The first safety locking device will be a manually operated switch brake, operated by a small lever which is an integral element of the wheel and/or castor design; secondly, as any weight is applied to the mobile stair or rolling ladder unit the wheel will be locked firmly into place by the action of a brake bed depressing onto the wheel as the weight is applied via a spring mechanism. A solid and stable work platform is essential, if any movement occurs at the working platform level there is no possibility of inertial energy being transmitted which can cause movement of the entire unit.

mobile stairs are just one of many different solutions for access at height which have evolved from the early ladders which mankind has used for thousands of years; indeed, the earliest known examples of a ladder of sorts appears in a cave painting in Spain, dating back to the Neolithic era some ten thousand years ago. While it is true to say it is an extremely primitive version of the ladders one is able to see today, in terms of engineering development it was a huge step forward in the civilizing of the human species.

Most portable and rolling ladders are made either from a construction of aluminum or stainless steel; both materials are robust, resist the corrosive effects of many chemicals and processes found in differing industries and are uniquely non porous and will not absorb contamination, essential in areas where cross contamination is a big issue. Rendering themselves highly adaptable and able to be cleaned down rapidly with pressure cleaners and/or steam cleaners, their versatility in industry is highly regarded.
