Central Brake
The central braking system is the most popular brake type, its manufactured as standard on about 90% of our products. A great safety feature, when the step is mobile the bar prevents users from walking up the steps! Our braking systems are brightly coloured to warn users not to use when the brake is inactive, and the best part is they are completely removable so if you damage it no problem, you can just get a replacement and not a whole new step! 

Side Brake
The side brake option comes as standard on most of our 3 tread steps (check each range for more details), a great option instead of a central brake it can be used on most steps from a 2 tread up! Its brightly coloured handle prompts the user to action the braking system prior to use! The brake can be easily replaced should any damage occur.

Plunger Castors
The Plunger castors are supplied as standard on most of our little steps in the commercial range (check each range for more details)! A preferred brake on units which are supplied to offices or shops. The 4 swivel castors fully rotate making the unit turn in its own footprint, and with no need to release the brake before use, your hands are always kept free! 

Double Bogey
The Klime-Ezee double bogey braking system, is a unique design created by us for customers who need to use their step in a narrow-aisle or where space is a premium! Its brightly coloured central lever works just like the central braking system, but this design comes with 4 swivel castors all linked together with an adjustable linkage bar. Its 4 legs are fitted with steel round feet to give maximum stability when in use! The best thing about the double bogey braking system, its easy to replace and it allows the user to turn the unit in its own footprint, making picking and packing a breeze!
