LXM600-5 The Fit and Forget Manual Step

The LXM600 is a simple to fit, easy to use and maintain step designed by AVS to challenge any manual step on the market. The step is a foot operated cantilever or “frame” step. It is operated using the right side mounted pedal. Just press the pedal and the step deploys steadily, safely and under the control of the powerful damped gas spring. The step uses the EXE Tread Design with soft highlighted step edge and top surface. To stow just push the step using the front non-slip grip and push to stowed position. Tested to over 50,000 cycles at 300Kg and up to 500Kg without any significant deflection! The open frame design means the step is easy to clean with a power wash and there is virtually no maintenance required. The LXM is compatible with similar steps on the market and so any old step can be replaced with the excellent LXM600. Steps can be fitted with a heavy duty Siemens position switch, with a generous length of cable, to send a warning signal to the driver when the step is left deployed. The LXM meets or all regulations with soft, safe corners and non-slip aluminium tread. Like all AVS Steps the LXM600 is designed and manufacture at our factory in Shropshire.

Testing

We’ve tested the EXM-5 up against other cantilever steps and in our tests the AVS LXM has come out on top. Our use and abuse test is a tough workout for any step. The LXM-5 went on and on and passed at 500Kg and even withstood 300Kg when placed at either corner! The legal requirement is only 136Kg but we always ensure our steps can withstand “real life”!
