New guideline EN528 for storage and retrieval machines

Our products not only meet the strict requirements of the EN 528 standard, but also offer first-class protection in demanding working environments.

Challenges in maintaining automated high-bay warehouses

The HighStep lift offers comprehensive safety thanks to an integrated fall protection system that ensures the protection of technicians when working at great heights. Its robustness guarantees reliable function and safety even in tight working conditions.

  • Extreme heights: Maintenance work at high altitudes increases the risk of falls and accidents.
  • Temperature and climatic conditions: Strong temperature fluctuations, especially in deep-freeze warehouses, place a strain on maintenance personnel.
  • Mobile machines: Constant movement of storage and retrieval machines and conveyor systems as an additional source of danger.
  • Ergonomic challenges: Unergonomic working positions lead to musculoskeletal disorders.
  • Heavy equipment: Technicians often carry heavy tools and spare parts.
  • Complex access systems: Time-consuming access to work areas in high-bay warehouses.
  • Lengthy security precautions: Cumbersome security systems require additional time.
  • Various bearing types: Different storage types and structures require specialized techniques and equipment.

Groundbreaking solution in the area of ​​automated high-bay warehouses

Our innovative lift enables access to high racks. This outstanding technology is becoming increasingly important, especially in light of the recent revision of standards for automated warehouses and conveyors. (EN528)

The spread of automated warehouses with multi-aisle high-bay warehouses and stacker cranes has developed rapidly across Europe in recent years. The accelerated development is not least due to the pandemic, which has significantly boosted the growth of online retailers and fulfillment service providers.

In order to make this progress safe and efficient, an important safety standard for this area was revised this year. The EN 528, which deals with “storage cranes” and their immediate environment, was comprehensively updated in March 2021. This extremely detailed and specific standard is therefore of essential importance for manufacturers, system providers and operators of storage and retrieval machines.

The HighStep rail

The system carrier with maintenance-free rail: easy to install, durable and extremely resilient
The standardized aluminum rail forms the basis of the system. It is easy to install and is mounted stationary on the structure.
Due to its design and classification as part of a machine, the HighStep rail remains maintenance-free throughout its entire service life. The anodized surface provides additional protection from harsh environmental conditions.
The rail is very strong and only needs to be connected to the structure every three meters on average. This offers the user new options and maximum flexibility in the realization of their projects.
The HighStep rail is extremely easy to assemble and can be used regardless of the nature or shape of the building. The rail is bendable and can be adapted to the shape of a structure on site. This significantly reduces the preparatory work associated with assembly compared to conventional climbing systems.

The HighStep Lift

The world's first mobile service lift - safe, time-saving and comfortable to the location at any desired height
The basic model for climbing is the HighStep Easy, consisting of two independent pedals. To climb, the pedals are hooked into the rail while the user's foot is fixed to the pedal by a binding.
The solid connection between the foot and the rail created by the pedal reliably prevents any fall, as it is not possible to step on the foot or accidentally slip.
The user walks absolutely upright at all times and can freely choose his step height; the movement sequence is similar to climbing stairs. The pedals can also be used as resting and working platforms.

The HighStep Easy & Protector

The basic model for climbing is the HighStep Easy, consisting of two independent pedals. To climb, the pedals are hooked into the rail while the user's foot is fixed to the pedal by a binding.
Climbing on the rail always takes place in conjunction with the independent fall protection device, the HighStep Protector. This serves as a rotating safety element and third safety point on the rail.
In the event of a sudden downward movement, the protector blocks in the rail and a fall is not possible. The combination of HighStep Easy and protector results in a minimal fall distance and the integrated fall protection absorber ensures maximum safety.
Multiple sliding rollers on all sides and optimal coordination with the rail make the protector particularly easy to move. The smart design prevents accidental hooking and enables extremely comfortable and safe ascent and descent.
The Protector is the only fall arrester of its kind that can be fixed with one hand as a fixed anchor point in the event of a rescue. It is approved for two people according to EN 795 B.
