Operating theatre steps according to the DIN standard – now with optimized feet
As announced in the previous product newsletter, Hupfer's operating theatre steps have been adapted to the standard "DIN EN 14183 - steps". In addition, Hupfer was able to meet the customer's request to introduce rubberized feet for even more slip resistance.

A new antistatic and anti-slip foot is now used, which has passed both the internal test and a field test in the hospital. The foot is also available as a spare part – compatible with all operating step theatres (Article: 0191386510).

In the following an overview of the changes compared to the previous version:

Frame and tread firmly connected
Up to now, the platform had been placed loosely on the support frame – now the frame and platform are firmly connected by means of a screw connection in order to prevent slipping or tilting of the
platform.

Maximum load & type label
The load on the operating theatre step is to be tested according to the standard and limited to a maximum of 150 kg. The Hupfer operating theatre steps have passed this static load test and now show the maximum load of 150 kg on a type plate attached to the product. This limitation is also to be found in the "guidelines for the handling of ladders and steps" of the German Statutory Accident
Insurance, according to which the Employers' Liability Insurance Association checks the safety of work equipment.

Slip resistance according to standard fulfilled
The standard describes a test method for the slip resistance of steps. This test has been performed and our operating theatre steps meet the requirements.
