Both top and bottom steps are brightly colored and textured, plus the top step features a warning label. As a result, users are easily reminded exactly where they are on the ladder at all times. Every other step has a long-wearing, grit-like, non-slip tread to help insure a stronger user footing.
The unit is constructed of high-tensile aluminum that is welded throughout. It also features weight-activated casters that won't roll when weight is applied, but roll easily when the weight is removed.
The ladder is available in 2-, 3-, 4-, 5- and 6-step models in a variety of easy-on-the-eyes colors. Optional handrails are available on the larger step versions. The SmartStep also features a limited 10-year warranty.
