"I was looking for a reasonably small step ladder for my wife. She has mobility issues and is very independent and needed a step ladder with a grabrail at the top. So I did the usual thing and turned to my Screwfix catalogue.
Found just the ticket and went straight away to my local Screwfix depot. The result, one happy wife and lots of brownie points for me.
"Purchased these for general us around the house. No big footprint when closed, not too heavy and easy to set up. This will cover most of my needs for both inside and out. Good wide treads which make them comfortable on the feet when in use for long periods. The handle is a good safety feature when painting ceilings or if you are at at unsteady. So overall excellent value for money."
"my last set of steps finally gave up after many years service and brought this set as replacement. these are a bit heavier but very solid and feel very safe when using them and would recommend them to any one as great steps for a very good price."
"Needed some steps that would not only enable me to reach the ceiling to remove polystyrene tiles, but also be able to hold onto the bar for stability. I had looked at some from ALDI but they were far too heavy. These are just the ticket! Very pleased with them, they fold away neatly too!"
"Bought a pair of steps 3 months ago for nearly same price from a High St. catalogue shop. They were useless. Size 8 shoes, 2 feet on a step and can't move. Bought these, and it's amazing the difference when a little thought goes into the design. Safe, sturdy plenty of room for your feet."
"As soon as these steps came into the house they were used. Person using them stated that they wished they had them years ago. Made things so safe and easy. Light enough to carry and a firm foot hold when deployed."
"These steps are just right for my needs, easy to stow out of the way when not needed, light enough to carry to and fro from the shed at the bottom of the garden, high enough to paint the ceiling, clean the windows, change a light bulb and clean out my gutters (I live in a bungalow). In fact provide all the access I need around the home all in one piece of kit. They are also very sturdy and the frame extending above the top step offers not only somewhere to hang your bucket or paint kettle but also some reassurance when you're getting on in years like me and need something to hold onto. In the words of Pa Larkin "perfick"."
"This is a really good lightweight ladder that suits my needs. I'm a women in her sixties who does her own DIY and need a good sturdy ladder that is not too heavy to carry around. I like the fact there is a grip frame to hold as you work. I have seen similar ladders with a much higher price, so overall a good value purchase."
"I ordered this thinking it would be a light weight option. It isn't. But because of that it is strong, steady and reassuring. OK, it is a bit heavier to carry about but rather that than having something collapse under you. The locking mechanism is clever and simple. You don't need to remember to set it, just push a button as you close it. Excellent value for a quality product."
"I was surprised how strong and steady these steps were. The treads are generously sized, which is particularly good as age creeps up and a certain degree of infirmity sets in. A good, strong, safe pair of steps at a very reasonable price. Much better in every way than I could find at the same price anywhere else. Highly recommended."
