The Stairway/Platform System – on the up with item


item Industrietechnik GmbH is constantly expanding its comprehensive MB Building Kit System with new, innovative products. The best example is the attractive and versatile Stairway/Platform System. Whether a single large platform, an all-round assembly platform or a simple maintenance platform, the Stairway/Platform System can be used to build working areas at any height.

Quality at the highest level

By developing just a few new products, item has produced a whole new, innovative aluminium building kit system that ensures optimum access to machines, thanks to its stable and sturdy design. The intelligent concept supports a broad range of designs and variants. "The Stairway/Platform System is our response to rising customer demand for secure and reliable stairway and platform structures. Due to its custom design options, it can be tailored precisely to the specific requirements and spaces in a company," explains product manager Stephan Koch.

Always an optimum connection – the versatile concept

One advantage of the Stairway/Platform System lies in the item fastening technology it uses. All components are screwed to aluminium profiles, and the use of fasteners means that companies don’t need to worry about complex mitre cuts for guard-rails, or welding work. As a result, customised stairway systems can be built with exceptional flexibility for virtually any purpose. Extending or modifying the system at a later point in time doesn’t pose a problem either. Whether bridges, elevated maintenance platforms, all-round working platforms or anything else – all requirements can be met easily and quickly.

Wide range of custom configurations

item supplies the Stairway/Platform System in four different pitches for ergonomic (38°), standard (45°), space-saving (60°) and load-carrying (30°) stairways.

Stable intermediate platforms can also be integrated to form additional working levels. The platforms feature a ridged surface and can be used to construct floorspaces up to 36 m2.

Because the Stairway/Platform System is compatible with the MB Building Kit System, users can also choose from a comprehensive range of accessories such as partitions, safety doors and floor elements. An online Query Assistant helps customers find the stairway system that best suits their requirements (catalog.item24.de/tps).

Safety you can rely on – above and beyond the required standards

Safety is the absolute top priority for the Stairway/Platform System. A whole range of integrated safety functions satisfy all requirements for reliable occupational health and safety measures and thus actively help prevent accidents in the workplace. The closed surfaces minimise the risk of injury and also prevent soiling. Each of the numerous guard-rail variants is not only stable, but also seamless and designed with flush transitions. All this, in combination with knee and foot-rails, ensures that the stringent regulations set down by the institutions for statutory accident insurance and prevention in Germany are not only met but also surpassed.

Functionality with style – design awards for the Stairway/Platform System

The Stairway/Platform System from item is not just an example of outstanding functionality that is tailored perfectly to practical needs. It also boasts a design that – like so many more from item – has won critical acclaim. In 2014, item won the "product design award" for the clear and appealing form of the Stairway/Platform System. Furthermore, the system has also recently been conferred with the German Design Award 2015 "Special Mention".
