Branach Workmaster Mobile Fibreglass Step-Platform
Castors provide an efficient means of moving step-platforms. Workmaster Mobile Step-Platforms have two methods to provide mobility with castors.
Platform heights up to 1.8 meters use castors with springs. The default position of these castors allows the ladder to move easily. Under the weight of the user the castors retract therefore making the ladder stationary. Castors with springs are practical if you need to frequently re-position your ladder. For example around a factory floor or large flat areas.
Platform heights over 1.8 meters use castors with levers. Moving the lever allows the ladder to roll freely. Reversing the action retracts the castors and therefore makes the ladder stationary. Castors with levers are great if you are having mobility issues with your ladder. Or if you just want to increase efficiency and safety when moving your ladder.
An alternative to castors is wheels. The Outdoor Wheel Kit allows the user to tip the ladder and pull or push it around uneven ground with ease. The Outdoor Wheel Kit is particularly useful if the ladder frequently needs to be moved around a large work site.ladder.
