Q: How much weight will the Shure-Step® hold?
A: All of the Shure-Step® products are rated at 500 lbs.
Q: Can you stack the Shure-Step®?
A: All of the Shure-Step® models are stackable except the Senior Step. It cannot have a step stacked on it, but it can be stacked on top of the Shure-Step® II.
Q: How do I stack the Shure-Step®s?
A: You simply place one Shure-Step® on top of another and they will interlock because the step is hollow underneath. No need for tools of any sort.
Q: How high can I safely stack the Shure-Step®?
A: I recommend only stacking 2 Shure-Step®s, that’s 16 inches tall, but I’ve seen situations where the Shure-Step® was stacked 3 high, 22 inches tall. OSHA requires a handrail for any step that is 24 inches or taller.
Q: What is the height increase per step when stacked?
A: The Shure-Step® grows 6 inches with each step stacked. Each step is 10 inches tall (except the Senior Step). Add 1 step on top of that step and your working height is 16 inches tall.
Q: Will the Shure-Step® float?
A: Yes they will float.
Q: How much does the Shure-Step® weigh?
A: The Senior Step weighs 9 pounds each.
The Shure-Step® II weighs 8 pounds each.
The Shure-Step® III weighs 16 pounds each
The “L” Shure-Step® weighs 39 pounds each.
Q: Is there a non-slip surface on the top of the Shure-Step®?
A: The Senior Step has a large, 10” X 20” black non-slip sandpaper surface on top of it.
The Shure-Step® II is the only step model that comes with 2 different top surfaces. One is a very rough diamond plate pattern that is designed to be used in “dirty” work places. Should the top surface get oil, grease or grime on it, the user will not experience any slippage as long as he/she is wearing some type of safety shoes with good tread on the sole.
The other top surface used on the Shure-Step® II has a smoother surface with 2 non-slip strips near each edge to prevent a smooth soled/leather shoe from slipping.
The Shure-Step® III also has a smooth top with non-slip strips near each edge to prevent a smooth soled/leather shoe from slipping.
