Basic guide to podium towers

Date posted: 23 November 2011

When working on Ceilings or walls, then hiring podium steps is a safe alternative to using a ladder.  

Not only will it assist in making the job easier but it also has the added advantage of allowing you to work with 360-degree manoeuvrability without the need of moving the steps.

It is also a safer method of working than using a ladder as you get safety features such as a non-slip platform and full surrounding guard rails.

Podium steps are available in many different sizes so if you’re looking to do some painting or sanding walls; you could consider using either the 0.9 - 1.25m steps or the slightly taller 1.5m steps. However, if you are working somewhere which has high ceilings, you can go as high as 1.9m podium towers.

Advantages of using Podium Towers are:

  • Different sizes available to suit the job at hand
  • Safety features such as non-slip platform and fully surrounding guard rails
  • Compact and lightweight, the podium step folds like a ladder, thus enabling it to be transported or stored easily
  • Easy to transport through doorways or carried upstairs
  • Lightweight and assembled in less than a minute

Best at hire has an extensive range of podium steps for hire suitable when needing to work safely at height available. We also have many other suitable platform products such as scaffolding, folding work platforms, mobile stages, powered access etc.
