When the first dedicated fire ladder was used in 1889, it came from the German town of Günzburg. And very little has changed since then. In fact, Günzburger Steigtechnik GmbH claims that even in 2020 there are very few fire trucks that don’t feature its equipment. Of course, the company has expanded its range since then, and now develops and produces access technology and transportation logistics solutions for firefighting, rescue and disaster relief operations, such as scaling and rope-extension ladders, rescue platforms, mobile containers and firefighting storage boxes. These include innovative products such as the multi-function ladder and the new generation of mobile containers, which are now even available with an electric drive. All of this was developed under the motto "From practice, for use in practice" in collaboration with seasoned specialists.

But that’'s not all. Sometimes Günzburger Steigtechnik receives inquiries that cannot be resolved off the cuff using the standard product range. However, the company certainly does not see this as a reason to shy away - where there's a will, there's a way. For instance, Günzburger Steigtechnik was recently tasked with ensuring technicians could perform maintenance on the rescue hoist of the Airbus H145 helicopter of the German Armed Forces both quickly and safely. In next to no time, the experts from the company’s special design division developed and manufactured a multi-part platform staircase that is perfect for the job. The two basic elements can be connected to one another using hook clamps and easily moved with the help of sturdy rollers. The support of the platform on the upper landing skid ensures the necessary stability, while the insertable railings and non-slip steps provide additional safety.
