Self-adjusting Stairs

Enter the pool safely at any desired depth

Whereas for recreational swimmers a staircase or ladder is an obvious part of the pool, for rehabilitation clients it is an essential tool to help them access the water safely.

Our self-adjusting stairs are specially developed for use in combination with a movable pool floor. Self-adjusting stairs are a cost-effective alternative to the integrated stairs. Our user-friendly, adjustable and stable self-adjusting stairs have been developed to ensure that users can enter the pool as safely and easily as possible.

Benefits of our self-adjusting stairs

Self-adjusting stairs can be mounted on almost all (existing) movable pool floors.

The self-adjusting stairs are, extremely suitable for stair climbing exercises, thanks to the closed design, which prevents the risk of entrapment.

All our products surpass the European quality and safety requirements for swimming pool equipment installed in public and medical swimming pools (the NEN-EN 13451).

The closed design eliminates the risk of entrapment, making the stairs safe to use at any depth.

The design and production of self-adjusting stairs with movable pool floors is completely in-house. This means that we can develop all possible requirements and dimensions.

How do self-adjusting stairs work?

Self-adjusting stairs are located at the top of a movable pool floor. The steps are provided with a number of pivoting parts in the stiles, steps and handrails and have two wheels.

The construction of the movable steps guarantees an infinitely adjustable angle and can therefore be used at any desired depth of the pool. When the movable pool floor lowers to the desired depth, the self-adjusting stairs move along with the movable pool floor.
