STANDARD ladders – 2014
What if the smallest details, but yet the most essential ones, define the overall appearance and logic of a whole product family? And further, these details are- by default- required?
The European Standard DIN EN 14183 defines the logic for the small stepstool. All minimal and/or maximal requirements are exactly met in this design. To create a homogeneous family, this norm defines the geometrical logic of the Standard-family: a stepstool, a universal ladder and a large ladder object. The maximal height for the 1st & 2nd step and the angle of the stringers are determined by the requirements for the stepstool.
