A+A: NEW APPEARANCE OF MUNK GÜNZBURGER STEIGTECHNIK
Partner for occupational safety presents itself with its new company structure
Premiere in Düsseldorf: With its new brand presence under the umbrella of the Munk Group, Munk Günzburger Steigtechnik will be presenting itself to the trade public at A+A 2021 (26 to 29 October, Hall 6, Stand B51). The focus will be on top products for occupational safety, such as the new generation of the nivello ladder shoe with 2-axis inclination technology, all TRBS-compliant stepladder innovations, the FlexxTower one-person scaffold or the FlexxLift mini-lift. The access technology experts from Günzburg will also be presenting the clip-step R13 anti-slip step support, innovative special constructions and products from the Munk Rettungstechnik division.
"A+A 2021 is a very special trade fair for us, because in Düsseldorf we will be presenting our range of work safety products under the new brand identity and our company promise: Safety made in Germany," says Ferdinand Munk, owner and managing director of the Munk Group. As of 1 September, the former Günzburger Steigtechnik has given itself an even more clearly differentiated company structure under the umbrella of the Munk Group, which is now also visible at the trade fair stand. "More than ever, we focus on the highest level of work safety and absolute added value for our customers in all projects and processes. This can also be seen on every centimetre of our appearance in Düsseldorf," says Munk.
It is clear that Munk Günzburger Steigtechnik is presenting the second generation of the nivello ladder shoe at the A+A, which convinces with additional functionalities, such as the 2-axis inclination technology in the integrated joint for an optimal full-surface floor support or exchangeable foot plates for a safe stand on a wide variety of surfaces.
Top work safety is also offered by the three-part multi-purpose stepladder, the two-part stepladder and the stepladder for cleaning glass as well as the many other new stepladders, which have been developed in accordance with the new version of TRBS 2121 Part 2 and thus comply with the stricter technical rules for operational safety.
Other A+A highlights from Munk Günzburger Steigtechnik include the FlexxTower one-person scaffold, which can be assembled and dismantled by one person in record time and enables safe working up to a working height of six metres, or the FlexxLift mini-lift platform. With it, the user can easily reach working heights of up to 4.2 metres.
At the Munk Günzburger Steigtechnik stand, visitors can also find out about the new training concept or the dates for the Munk Günzburger Steigtechnik roadshows, the MUNK Rettungstechnik products and the extensive after-sales services of the Munk Service division.
