FAQ's nach Slope steps
Why and for what do I need a slope step?
The slope steps 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 slope steps 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 bar. 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 punched serrated holes 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 bars!
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!
Many of your questions will be answered when watching the videos ....
What is the shape of the tread of the slope steps?
The shape is trapezoidal. The front side with the two long feet is wider than the rear side. See also the technical data.
How many slope steps do I need for my slope?
A "good, comfortable" walking is possible with a distance of 5 cm between the steps. On the homepage above (above the 3 videos) you will find a quantity calculator. Enter the slope length and select the step type, then you have an orientation how many steps you need.
Of course, this is also a bit of a "matter of taste". Someone who only very rarely has to use the stairs may say to himself, fewer steps with more spacing are enough for me.
