Shure-Step is a stackable safety step rated at 500 pounds that has many uses; Seniors, bariatric patients, bus, train, aircraft and transportation drivers, warehouse workers, mechanics, and technicians benefit from the stability and strength of the Shure-Step. Shure-Steps have a non-slip surface with height starting at 6 and 10 inches, and allows you to stack them to reach up to 16 to 22 inches high or more for a guaranteed safe reaching and stepping aid.
Trying to keep you’re A&P mechanics safe when working on aircraft can be almost impossible, or difficult to say the least. Step stools used for aircraft maintenance should be tough enough to withstand rough service and NOT crack or break the first time a tug bumps against it. The A&P mechanics step stool should also have large rubber pads on the bottom to prevent sliding on the smooth or epoxy floor of a hangar or scratching the paint on an aircraft if it is used on a wing or other painted surface on the plane. This step would have to withstand enormous weight, say 500 pounds or more and if the top surface had a non-slip surface, that would also help make the A&P mechanic’s job easier & safer.
