Powered stair climbers (or stair walkers) have been around for a while now, however, it still seems that industry awareness around them and usage is much lower than it arguably should be in this era of heightened health & safety awareness.
What is a powered stair climber (stair walker) and what are they used for?
Stair walkers are typically used to transport heavy goods up and down stairs with a single operator, saving the need for multiple persons to shift heavy loads manually. They are essentially stair climbing sack trucks, whereby a load is strapped securely to the lifting platform and then – at the touch of a button – the load can be easily moved across multiple levels of almost any building. Whether it’s a stadium, a hotel, an office, even a block of flats, there’s a use for a powered stair climber in almost any workplace environment.
