Folding stair

Folding stairs are used to gain comfortable and safe access to the top of tank trucks and railcars. The folding stair can be equipped with a safety cage to create a safe work zone. Folding stairs with a larger step width not only increase the access to the working area, but they are also suitable for carrying and positioning of the loading arms or other equipment.
