Balancing of the weight of the structure is performed by self developed, precisely dimensioned and optimized spring cylinders, which enables finer tuning than the previous solutions. Read more about the dimensioning of the DL-spring cylinders in Hungarian here:

Operation and handling

Operation of the DL-folding stairs is easy and safe. Folding down and folding back the manually operable stairs requires minimal effort. In the upright position the structure is locked by the well visible yellow latch pedal, which can be unlocked on foot press, thus the stairs and the cage become moveable. After the stairs are folded down, the structure sits on the tank by the oil-resistant rubber bumper. After the loading process, the stairs can be folded back against the platform, after reaching the upright position again, the pedal is locking the structure automatically.

Moving the DL-folding stairs to the side is solved by an additional roller equipment, which rolls on the rail structure that is mounted to the DL-platform.

Hydro-pneumatic moving mechanism
Upon request, the DL-folding stairs can be equipped with a hydro-pneumatic operating mechanism, which makes the handling effortless, more comfortable and which provides appropriate damping at the end positions of the movement.

Structural features
The tread of the stairs is made of galvanized anti-slip grids. The standard models are built with 3, 4 or 5 stairs, the unified width of the stairs is 800 mm.
The well designed DL-folding stair structure is especially stiff. It consist of interchangeable and standardized components, which enable short manufacturing and lead times.

Different materials
The basic version of the DL-folding stairs is produced of carbon steel with grey cover painting, but also for this basic version the parts exposed to heavy corrosion are manufactured out of stainless steel. For the application in the direct vicinity of aggressive environments the complete folding stair structure and the safety cage are manufactured out of stainless or acid resistant steel.
