The Rhino ImpactStep
We’ve known Rhino for a long time. We know they are industry leaders in the manufacture of top quality roof racks, bars, ladder restraints, rear door steps and other accessories for commercial vehicles.
Rhino have been championing the new ImpactStep over the past year, so what makes it different?
The Rhino ImpactStep is a rear mounted step which has been designed to protect your vehicle from low speed parking and loading impacts.
The standard sell on a rear step is that it can can reduce the lifetime cost of ownership of your van by significantly reducing body repair costs and vehicle down-time, which is true with the ImpactStep. Yes, it provides rear access to the vehicle with a full width step design and large safety tread area. It has an anti-slip gripping surface with high visibility reflective strip ensuring employers carry out their duty of care to their employees.
The key difference is the step’s ability to absorb shock of up to 60 mm of compression due to twin rubber buffer shocks. It has a unique pivoting bracket design, which can also absorb any corner impact.
