About the Safe-T-Step
Fabricated from mild steel, the Hope Safe-T-Step gives greater strength and is lighter in weight than most steps on the market. Its unique design allows minimum overhang whilst providing an extra deep step area thanks to its anti-slip, self-cleaning step surface complete with red reflective strip for improved visibility.
Optimum safety and easy cleaning
Two styles of drain hole have been integrated into the Safe-T-Step’s design not only to provide a non-slip van step, but to ensure the platform stays dry and safe whatever the day may bring. These drain holes, complete with raised pattern, also make the Safe-T-Step easier to clean, with mud from fieldwork simply rinsing away.
Improved visibility even in poor lighting
The Safe-T-Step includes a full width, integral red reflector strip, which makes the van easier to see when parked or driving in the dark. Come day or night, and even in poor lighting conditions, this red reflective strip offers improved visibility.
Easy to install on a wide range of vans
Even with its great strength and market leading durability, the Safe-T-Step is lightweight and easy to install. The step attaches to existing mounting points on a range of leading vans, whilst optional extras, such as tow bars plus integral air and power supply points, mean the Safe-T-Step can work with your specific van model seamlessly.
Built to last and preferred by professionals
The step is fabricated from durable steel and powder coated (in yellow or black) to prevent rust and ensure a smart appearance can be retained even on vans that are regularly accessed throughout the day. Thanks to this and many of the benefits mentioned above, the Safe-T-Step has proven its worth across many industry sectors, including in the field, making it the preferred vehicle safety and access device for leading utility companies E.ON, EDF and Scottish Water. The Safe-T-Step has kept their staff safe in a wide range of working conditions and could do the same for yours.
Safe-T-Step Unique Features
Full width, non-slip step
The Hope Safe-T-Step provides a deep, full width rear van platform with a raised tread pattern, three unique features that make loading the interior or roof rack of your van easier and safer. With the Safe-T-Step’s advanced design worker safety can be fully protected and as a result that is simply no need for your drivers or workers to stretch or balance inappropriately limiting the risk of injury and slips, trips or falls from your vehicles.
Mid-step flap for towing
The Safe-T-Step can be supplied as a solid rear step or with an integral, gas strut assisted lift-up centre section to allow easy access to trailer coupling. Suitable for use with Hope towing equipment, our mid-step flap locks into place when not in use. In fact, there are no removable parts to lose, ensuring the step area is maintained and safe at all times, even when towing.
As with our Safe-T-Bars, all Safe-T-Steps with towing facilities are compliant with Type Approval UN ECE Regulation 55 or 58.
Rigorously tested finish
The Safe-T-Step is built from steel and finished in a durable powder coating as standard. To ensure optimum durability, this unique combination undergoes a four stage anti-corrosion process that exceeds the industry standard 1,000-hour salt spray test demanded by motor manufacturers.
As an option, where possible, adding our reliable four sensor reversing systems with audible and visual warning can help with reversing and parking manoeuvres to further minimise the risk of rear impact damage.
