Glide Step

Our electric Glide Step range, available in 600mm and 1200mm widths, provides the best possible reliability and performance, while also offering aesthetic integration with modern vehicles. This means it not only visually complements taxis, minibuses and ambulances, but has been engineered with precision to ensure it won’t let you down in the field, minimizing off-road time.

Every aspect of the Glide Step has been refined by our inhouse team of designers, from the all new motor, to the LED strip for better visibility, and new guide wheels for improved deploying and stowing, through to the lower covers for easier cleaning access.

Designed to keep you moving

Keeping your vehicle on the road is paramount, which is why the Glide Step has been designed with a new motor and ridged guide wheels that run on stainless steel rails to ensure the step is fit for continuous use day-in-day-out.

Sleek new design

With black tread end caps that integrate seamlessly with the step’s plastic corners and new anodised aluminium tread, the Glide Step is designed to complement modern vehicle aesthetics.

LED strip light

A bright, flashing LED light alerts the user when the step is deploying and stowing. When fully deployed, the light stays on for better visibility.

New powerful motor

The Glide Step is powered by a much stronger motor than previous models, meaning that the step can deploy at any angle or incline you happen to be parked on.

Ridged wheel shape

The new internal guide wheel design allows debris to pass through for smooth reliable action, even in the toughest of conditions.

Sensitive edge safety feature

A failsafe that halts power to the motor upon coming into contact with an obstruction, preventing damage to the step and injury to passengers. As an added safety feature, the step will not deploy if the sensitive edge is damaged (replacement kits are available if required).

Removable underside covers

The Glide Step will need minimal cleaning to release debris, and the removable covers make this extremely easy to do so.

Dashboard switch

The step comes with a wiring kit that includes a control and a dashboard switch. This switch not only turns the step on/off, but also lights up to inform the driver whether the step is currently deployed, stowed or moving. The switch will also alert the driver in the event of an obstruction or the step not deploying fully.
