Sure Step Fire Truck Ladder

Safety and security while ascending or descending fire trucks

Sure Step Fire Truck Ladder

The newest innovation is the Sure-Step fire truck access ladder.

Fire truck access ladder

Sure-Step is a collapsible, self-retracting ladder that provides safety and security while ascending or descending. The ladder stores in a low profile position parallel to the truck body. To use, the bottom section simply flips down and the ladder pulls out to a comfortable ten degree climbing angle. When finished, the bottom section flips up and locks, while the gas struts retract the ladder into a safely stored position. 

The ladder comes in various heights to serve a wide variety of trucks in various departments. Each ladder is built for your application based on basic dimensions that you provide using our consultation sheet. Sure-Step is constructed of aluminum and uses stainless hardware to provide dependable use in all environments. The standard ladder is provided with a durable, black powdercoated finish. Cast aluminum steps with large drain holes and non-skid surface provide traction and safety in any condition. Sure-Step is designed to meet all NFPA standards.

Fly-In Fly-Out

Always use extension ladders in a fly-out position.

Some departments want to position their extension ladder in the fly-in configuration. In order to do so, the ladder must be designed accordingly, or else the hardware can present a tripping hazard.

All ALCO-LITE® ladders are designed for use (in the) fly-out positionas specified in IFSTA and the NFPA 1932 Standard 5.2.2.
