The clocks went forward, and we all lost an hour in bed. This can only mean one thing. Winter is behind us. Over the last fortnight, we have looked at caravanning, focussing on getting your motorhome looking the part and then getting it transported safely to the site of your choice. What we haven’t discussed yet, however, is getting in and out of your caravan safely. Luckily, at SecureFix Direct we have several options so that you don’t lose your footing on top of that extra hour in bed.
Picture the scene. You and your family are taking a short weekend break at your favourite caravan site. You wake up the next morning to rain, something it has been doing all night. You decide to take a morning walk regardless. You go to step out of your caravan, but you slip. You don’t have a step, and your exit point is naturally wet. Not the best start to the day.It doesn’t have to be like that, though. We offer a range of steps, all of which are lightweight and portable, so they can be transported easily but also used just as comfortably.
SecureFix Direct – Stepping Out On A Rainy Day Doesn’t Have To Be A Risk
Carrying a maximum weight capability of 150Kg, our large plastic heavy duty step is a fine choice for getting in and out of your caravan whilst also having the potential to be used elsewhere. Perhaps you have young children, who need a helping hand to reach the sink or other points of interest. This step could then be used to give them the leg up they need. Maybe they are just the inquisitive type and want to watch Mom or Dad cooking in the kitchen. It’s perfect for that as well. As for your peace of mind, it is easy to store, so it can be kept out of harm’s way!
Alternatively, you may prefer the aluminium options that we offer. Both come with anti slip rubber pads, so even in the worst of weather, your footing will be assured. On top of being aesthetically pleasing, the aluminium steps are easy to wipe clean should they get dirty. The single step also contains rubber feet at the four contact points with the ground, giving you assurance and stability whether it is muddy or firm. If you are looking for the ultimate ease of storage, then our folding aluminium step is your best friend. Also carrying a maximum weight of 150KG, the step folds out to a maximum length of 480mm and a width of 300mm, giving you plenty of room to step onto. As with its non-foldable cousin, the folding step contains a non slip rubber pad, so you can keep your footing. Once used, simply fold it back up and you can then store it anywhere, such is the portability of this item.
SecureFix Direct – Stepping In Has Never Been So Easy
Maybe the reason you were leaving your caravan was to go and fetch some fresh water. Now you have the step of your choice, you can continue on your way. Of course, to transport water, you would need a water carrier. Once again, SFD can equip you with what you need. Depending on the volume of water you wish to transport, we have water carriers that you can carry, and we also have ones with a handle for you to pull along with you. These do not have to be limited to camping use though, they are also ideal for use in the garden or for if you are doing a bit of DIY at home. The 10 and 15 litre water carriers come with a screw top and were a lifesaver when it came to the DIY project I have just completed. They are heavy duty and comfortably handle their capacity, and are manufactured from Food Grade Safe Material, so you don’t have to worry about making your water safe after transporting it in one of these carriers.
SecureFix Direct – Carrying And Transporting Water On A Trip Doesn’t Have To Be A Daunting Prospect
I need to store more than that amount, I hear you cry. Panic not, for we have carriers available with capacities of 25, 40 and 52 litres. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to carry these! This selection of water carriers come with handles for you to pull the carrier once you have filled them up. Their large wheels ensure ease of movement, as we know that the ground may not be the easiest to traverse, and the body of the carrier is impact resistant, so you don’t have to worry about spilling your load on the way back and wasting your journey to the pump. The 52 litre water carrier has a filler hose, so you don’t need to spend ages waiting for it to fill up. Smart and efficient, you can fill up quickly then roll it back to your caravan, safe in the knowledge that it is made out of heavy duty material which offers it not only a high degree of protection, but also durability.
From the team at SecureFix Direct,
All the best
