Why and for what do I need a slopestep?
The slopesteps allow you easier access to your slope, which is otherwise difficult to walk on. You can thus also access property areas that are difficult to access. The slopesteps are flexible to use and easy to install. And - most importantly - you get good footing.
Can the steps also be ordered without the steel bar?
No, the steps are always delivered including a rod. This is necessary for safety reasons.
What step size do you recommend?
This is at the personal discretion of the user and depends on his or her needs. In general, however, the larger the tread surface, the better the footing. You can find more information here!
Which step type offers very good slip resistance?
The steps with pass-throughs (perforated, with serrated perforated edge) provide very good sure-footedness.
Which type of step is the lightest?
Up to which slope can the steps be used?
Depending on the step type, up to 45° slope ("Mini" step type). The step type "Midi" is suitable for slopes up to 40° and the step type "Maxi" for slopes up to 35°. For even steeper terrain, you can consider the extension rods!
Are the steps suitable for any surface?
The steps are best anchored in the soil. They are less suitable for soil that is penetrated with roots, such as forest soil. If in doubt, please carry out a test yourself in advance. Anchoring is not possible in stony ground or on stones.
Can the steps in the "galvanised steel" version be painted yourself?
The steps can be painted at any time. Due to the galvanisation, the steps offer good corrosion protection and a good base for painting. A primer is not absolutely necessary, but increases the durability of the applied lacquer. The lacquer should be suitable for outdoor use and have a coarse texture. However, due to the effects of the weather (snow, rain, frost, UV radiation, salt content in the air) as well as mechanical loads (footsteps, stones, soil, etc.), we would like to point out that no information can be given about the durability of the lacquer.
Can the steps also be ordered with a coloured coating?
Do you also offer stone and/or wood coverings for "The Decorative" slope steps?
Yes, this is possible on request. Please send us an eMail for this!

What is the shape of the tread of the slopesteps?
What is the difference to the slopestep?
The difference between the slopestep and the tread plate lies in the area of application. The slope step is used for the construction of a staircase on a slope, the tread plate is more suitable for use on level or at most slightly ascending surfaces. In contrast to the slopestep, the tread plate has four equally short "feet".
Why are the step plates delivered without a steel bar?
The tread plates are usually laid on level ground, so it is not necessary to level the ground with the rod. However, if the terrain is sloping and/or uneven, steel rods can be ordered as an option. These can then be used to compensate for slight unevenness.
What size of tread plate do you recommend?
This is at the personal discretion of the user and depends on his or her needs. In general, however, the larger the tread surface, the better the stance.
Are the tread plates suitable for any surface?
The best way to anchor the treads is in the soil. They are less suitable for soil that is penetrated with roots, such as forest soil. If in doubt, please carry out a test yourself in advance. Anchoring is not possible in stony ground or on stones.
What do I need a railing for?
Can ordered goods also be collected?
