Penlan Farm provides the ingredients to Burns Pet Nutrition. They also operate regular farm tours using a tractor and agricultural trailer. To provide safe access onto the trailer, Ladderstore have provided the ideal vehicle access solution.
"We bought the Loadstep Vehicle Access Ladder to use with our passenger trailer. This is a standard, flat agricultural trailer for which we have created a Health & Safety compliant conversion set to turn it into an open passenger transport.
It was originally developed for use at our Open Farm Sunday event in June, but it has been used several times since for local carnivals and other farm events.
Although we have a set of timber steps so people can board safely, I was concerned that we had no safe way of disembarking passengers when we were out on the farm. After searching the web for a suitable solution I found the Loadstep at Ladderstore.com" said Mrs Rowan Flindall-Shayle from Burns Pet Nutrition Ltd.
The Loadstep Vehicle Access Ladder enables easy access to the bed of any goods vehicle. Supplied with easily installed brackets and locks for secure storage on vehicle, single handrail for safe step through on to and off the trailer bed, and integral tie to allow ladder to be secured to vehicle. The platform provides stability. This is an industrial strength ladder, can be used all around a vehicle, accommodating a variety of ground and load levels.
Penlan Farm produces free-range eggs and seasonal vegetables for Burns Penlan Farm range of moist pet food. In 2012 the farm won the RSPB Telegraph Nature of Farming Award for Wales.
