Intrinsic Quality

The next generation range of Fibreglass Steps delivers improved quality through enhanced specification, innovative engineering and robust design. This includes TB Davies’s first product to feature our new Impact Brace to absorb shock, reduce damage and prolong the life of the step.

A stiffer body structure has been designed to meet the challenge of the new EN131 durability tests and the impact resistant top caps have plenty of space to store tools when working from the steps. These are just a few examples of the TB Davies team’s obsession with quality that customers will appreciate.

Bob Baldock General Manager at TB Davies commented, “We’ve paid a lot of attention to elements and features that customers notice without realising it, from opening and closing the step to stability when climbing.”

“Before finalising manufacturing we road tested the pre-production prototypes with several customers who used them in their day to day work. These ranged from building to electrical contractors and we used their feedback to make final improvements, including a stronger tread design before launching into full production.”

The next generation range of Fibreglass Steps from TB Davies are made in Britain. They are designed to deliver more grip, better performance and improved climbing feel, alongside improved quality and refinement. With every component optimised to enhance safety and comfort.
