Following the introduction of part 7 to the EN131
standard there is growing interest in certified
warehouse steps. Heavy duty warehouse steps
were previously covered within the European
BGI637 standard and this standard was
effectively incorporated into the scope of
EN131-7 in September 2013. This, together with
the previous levels of parts 1 to 3 of the EN131
standard, has defined criteria for design, test and
certification across a wide spectrum of step units.
We have a vast range of UK manufactured steps
which are certified to the EN131 standard and the
EN14183 standard and users are becoming
increasingly interested in using products that have
the benefit of conformance and certification.
No longer can manufacturers & suppliers
say that there is no British standard.
We have been the only UK manufacturer of Safety
Steps which are accredited to the European GS
Standard for many years and elements of these
relevant standards have been incorporated into
our design and test criteria for all of our UK
manufactured steps. This is so we can ensure
that the necessary levels of product strength,
durability and stability are achieved. Our
manufacturing processes all take place under
controlled conditions conforming to ISO:9001
ensuring product conformity is verified.
