Folding Step

Folding Step

27th April 2016

We’ve recently manufactured a step unit for a client which has a folding handrail / guardrail. The step unit is for the Gonville & Caius College Cambridge, part of the University of Cambridge – the Fourth oldest college at the University.

The building where the step unit is to be installed is of Historic interest & of Architectural Merit and as a result the step unit will have to be as visually unobtrusive as possible – hence the folding handrail, which would be lowered when the step was not in use.

We’ve produced a video of the step in action which shows how easily the handrail can be raised & lowered by one man.
