HighStep - The future of climbing

HighStep Systems AG offers innovative product solutions to access high buildings or constructions such as high-voltage, telecommunication and broadcasting towers, cranes, wind power plants and vertical installations of all kinds.

The HighStep climbing system always consists of two different components, the aluminium rail as the system bearer and at least one selectable climbing device.

HighStep's climbing solutions are highly adaptive to meet a variety of present and future challenges.

Heart of the system

The HighStep Rail is the heart of the system. The aluminium rail consists of individual segments that are 6 meters long. The requisite number is securely connected together and bolted to the supporting structure to reach the desired climbing height. The HighStep Rail is ingeniously simple, and is maintenance-free throughout its service life. Its anodised surface makes it impervious to the elements, even under severe environmental conditions. Climbing devices that can be carried by one person are available for ascending and descending.

Major benefits


Safety

The HighStep System offers its user multiple safety features through a firmly fixed connection to the HighStep Rail. This ensures that missteps or falls are nearly impossible.

Ergonomics

The HighStep System allows to comfortably climb without any pressure on the user's arms. The users stands upright and moves his legs as if he was climbing steps. The height of each step can thereby be chosen individually.  

Flexibility

The HighStep Rail is extremley flexible and modularly extensible through the use of the different climbing devices. It thereby offers full compability with all HighStep climbing devices and accessories. Moreover, the HighStep Rail is very simple to install and can be applied regardless of the shape and surface of the building.

Sustainability

The HighStep Rail forms the everlasting inalterable element of the HighStep System. While climbing with HighStep Easy and driving the HighStep Lift HighStep Easy are today's standard, various future devices and product developments will run on the already existing HighStep Rail.  

Maintenance

The HighStep Rail generally requires no maintenance. The redundancy of maintenance covers all elements (rail, rail connection profiles and all standard parts used for assembly) that are fix installed on the building.

Protection of misuse

The HighStep Rail can only be climbed in connection with HighStep climbing gear. This prevents the access of unauthorized individuals and therefore minimizes the risk of damage to people and materials caused by misuse. 

Aesthetics

The HighStep Rail is visually very discrete. The rail's slender design and the customizable colours aim to reduce the impact on the general appearance of the building.   

Demografic effect

The use of the HighStep Systems allows to keep workers of higher age on their job as the effects on the physical condition are dramatically reduced. Users will be able to improve their performance irrespective of age when using HighStep Lift or HighStep Easy.

Profitability

The HighStep System offers a high degree of profitability. All our products maintain highest quality- and sustainability standards whilst simultaneously minimizing purchasing-, installation- and maintenance costs and maximising the economic product benefits (time saving, safety, adaptivity etc.).

Our philosophy



Such as railway tracks revolutionised the carriage of goods and passengers over horizontal distances in the 19th century, the HighStep System marks a radical change in overcoming vertical  distances. The HighStep System is the safest and most comfortable climbing system to date supporting its user mastering a large variety of different tasks and requirements in higher altitudes. Thereby, HighStep is driven by the aim to make mechanical or automatic climbing redundant in the near term future.
