Secure & Safe Step
Hackney drop-down step platforms permit safe and simple access to equipment stored high up in the back of each compartment. They are full width of the compartment and provide a very safe 11.5” step surface. The surface is open-grate aluminum with traction ribs that provide anti-slip characteristics in muddy and snow conditions.
The steps drop from the stored position just inside the door opening. For quick deployment no latches are used. They are held in the stowed position by pneumatic springs located inside the compartment walls. Raise the door, pull the step down and step on platform. The steps are rated for 600 lbs.
