Star Aluminium Trestles and Planks

Our innovative Aluminium trestle design has many benefits and is the perfect way to provide access in a variety of situations.

It can be used as an entrance or exit point, meaning there’s no need for you to carry around bulky ladders from location to location.

Each Aluminium trestle comes with an added feature that allows it to double up and function as both a sturdy platform and ramp will ensure those tricky tasks are made simple.

Our newly designed Aluminium trestles have been built with two functions in mind:

  1. They are fully welded to prevent breaking under pressure.
  2. Our design team has seen fit to include one side to function effectively either as a rung at ground level or to allow users to scale heights by offering safe steps when set against walls.

  • Heavy-duty, surface-gripping rubber infills enhance stability
  • All planks are 225mm wide and 50mm high
  • Load rated up to 225kg

We understand that not everyone is the same, which is why our trestles are adjustable in height, meaning they will fit anyone and everyone.

They are perfect for uneven ground, as they have adjustable legs which can be altered to create a perfectly levelled surface.
