Ladderstore sells a huge range of ladders, both big and small. In this case we were contacted by Sue at Ermine Court for a simple solution to help retirement home residents get on a minibus.
"I was looking for a small set of easily collapsible steps, without any form of handrail, to enable the home owners to get into and out of a mini bus. The steps needed to be sturdy and ‘non slip’ as they would be used by elderly people who’s mobility, in many cases, is restricted. The steps travel in the mini bus for use at the ‘other end’, hence the need for easily collapsible" says Sue, House Manager at McCarthy and Stone's Ermine Court.
"The Hailo Mini Folding 2 Steps from Ladderstore fitted the criteria at a good price".
The Hailo Mini Folding 2 Step is easy to store and folds down to just 4 cm in width. Features include 2 large steps with non-slip mats, hinged lock with release button, practical carry handle and non-slip plastic feet. Maximum load capacity of 150 kg. 5 Year Guarantee.
"Since receiving the steps they have been used many times. Much laughter and joviality takes place when everyone ‘lines up’ to board the bus!"
"I think you can tell from the photos’ that it was a good purchase that is getting a lot of use."
