Advantages of the new StufiKlapp

Comparison between StufiKlapp and rung ladder

The ladder StufiKlapp is a switch-monitored foldable step ladder, which is suitable for shaft pits.
As opposed to other pit ladders, the StufiKlapp offers the following advantages: It is much shorter, as it is not required for step ladders of this type that they jut out 1.10m above the access point. As the StufiKlapp juts out very little, it is not necessary to fix the lower end of the ladder to prevent it from tilting. Also the StufiKlapp occupies very little space with 115x125mm in the folded position. Thus there is more space in the pit. The two handles on the side avoid the danger of squeezing fingers at folding and unfolding the ladder and they provide a simple handling.
The new, improved version of the StufiKlapp corresponds to the EN 81-20 and has a Type Examination Certificate from the Liftinstituut.
The ladder is available in four different sizes.

The differnce between

rung ladders and step ladders

Rungs have a general width of 30mm. Descending safely is only possible when the ladder exceeds at least 1.10m above the exit point.

Steps have a minimum width of 80mm and are almost horizontal. They assure a safe descending. According to the state-of-the-art it is not necessary that the ladder exceeds above the exit point, if the door frame can be used as support. If the door frame is not suitable as a handle, e.g. in the case of hinged doors, a separate handhold needs to be mounted at the shaft wall.

Safety when descending into the pit

The ladder StufiKlapp is simply leaning against the lowest shaft access point with the fixation sheet.

Non-skip rubber coating on the fixation sheet and on the ladder feet inhibits lateral shifting. In the ladder stiles there are pre-drilled holes, so that the fixation sheet can be adjusted according to the local pit depth.

A strong magnet closure mechanism secures the folded ladder state.
