Scaling the heights of the staircase: The TP1 Stairs Platform
Painting walls, hanging decorations, changing light bulbs, checking smoke alarms - as a rule all you need at home for all these jobs is a household ladder. But it’s a very different story when it comes to hallways.
Apart from the heights involved, tight layouts and space-saving stair designs with narrow landings can make many jobs more difficult. How to go about setting up a ladder? Don’t even start. Hailo has now launched a clever and safe solution to the problem with its innovative TP1 Stairs Platform. This versatile product is an impressive aid with a huge range of applications - from straight staircases right through to a variety of winder layouts. The TP1 also put in a convincing performance at the iF Design Award 2018 and Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018, with the independent expert jury appreciating its level of innovation, functionality and safety, among other qualities.
With this new development, Hailo, the inventor of the first aluminium household ladder, is focussing firmly on the needs of DIYers. The TP1 Stairs Platform can be used as a working platform or as a base for all Hailo folding steps and stepladders with up to and including 4 steps. A non-slip working surface integrated into a sturdy aluminium frame system offers a firm footing. This multipurpose product comes pre-assembled and is therefore ready for immediate use, both inside and outside the home.
What’s more, the platform’s quick-lock, telescopic rails allow for flexible adjustment in length and height to accommodate specific local conditions. A built-in "bubble", which acts like a spirit level, allows the platform to be erected in a precise horizontal position. Whether it’s used on wood, stone, vinyl or carpet, the four feet with Soft Grip soles guarantee optimum safety with non-slip stability on different floor coverings. And for extra safety when handling, Hailo has equipped the platform with a two-handed safety unlocking system.
Once the job’s done, the TP1 Stairs Platform can be easily removed and stowed away using the handy carry handle. Ultra-slim - just six centimetres in all - it fits into any nook or cranny.
