Cabin bed steps

Project  / Project number: BK2019/065  /  Status:


Cabin bed steps with hinged extensions


The challenge

A child struggled to climb the steep steps into his cabin bed.


The solution

The steps were extended to make them deeper to allow him to get into bed unaided. Being hinged, the extensions can be folded out of the way when not needed.

Steps with extensions closed…

… and open, ready for climbing

The benefit

He now has the independence to get into bed unaided. As his mother says: “.. at just the second attempt tonight, [he] managed to climb into bed with no support at all!! He turned to me and the huge grin on his face said it all.”
