Transportation Innovation Products says its Step-A-Side ladder system for both flatbed and van trailers can be set up and in use in about 15 seconds, anywhere on the flatbed’s “rub-rail.” With the handles extended, the driver is afforded the correct angle and leverage to safely mount and dismount the trailer, the company says.

Constructed of HREW steel tubing and powder-coated to help protect it from the elements, the Step-A-Side ladder — which weighs less than 15 pounds — also has slip-resistant rungs, along with rubber feet for use in free-standing applications, according to Transportation Innovation Products. While the closed compact size is designed to allow the ladder to be stored under the sleeper or in a side box, its overall length is more than 6 feet with the handles extended.
