Q. What IS the main standard covering Mobile Warehouse Steps?
A. The British Standard BS EN 131-7:2013. Testing to this standard is covered in related parts of the same standard.
Q. Do I have to have a British Standard certified product, is it a health & safety legal requirement?
A. No, it is NOT a legal requirement, it is only recommended that you purchase products that meet this standard.
Q. Can products meet this standard without paying an extortionate cost of having it stamped with a kite mark?
A. Yes! Our products are built to the same design and specifications as the British Standards specifications, where we can exceed their recommendations we have done so.
Q. Are some products unable to be kite marked?
A. Yes, only mobile steps with platform lengths between 400 & 1000mm are covered under BS EN 131-7:2013. Longer platform lengths fall outside of the scope of the standard.
