Step Operation

The Stayco 2C550 double cassette step is unique in the concept of a double treaded step unit that closes into a cassette case with a depth of less than 100mm. The step unit is designed to work with FWD vans that would normally have a cut-out flip step to provide a stair of two treads between the ground and the vehicle floor. The 2C550 (Patent applied for) has none of the disadvantages of a cut out flip step. These include the high labour cost of the installation, the modification to the door lower track which in some cases can affect the vehicle warranty and the need for the driver to bend down and deploy the step by hand. The 2C550 is installed under the vehicle floor as simply as any cassette step and is entirely operated by foot. It provides a tread surface 76mm below and 104mm above the bottom edge of the vehicle sill lip when deployed. When stowed the ground clearance under the vehicle sill lip is reduced by less than 100mm.

 

The step unit is deployed by simply pushing in the treads in a small distance to release the over-centre catch and the folded treads deploy like any cassette type step by the action of a damped gas spring. Once deployed, the side foot pedal is pressed which lifts the top tread to a sufficient height above the lower tread so that it can then be pushed back by foot towards the centre of the vehicle, where it locks in position and is held there by the pedal catch. The step is ready for use.

 

To stow the step, the foot pedal is depressed to release the lock. The top tread can then be pulled down by foot to the stowing position on top of the lower tread. The treads are then pushed into the step case until the over-centre catch engages and the treads are held stowed in the case.

 

The fabricated step case is made from powder coated steel and the treads and side arms from anodised aluminium. Stainless steel rails and nylon rollers complete the package.
