We manufacture & support machinery operator safety.









Premium Australian Made Ladder Access Systems

It took advanced thinking to make our Access Systems so simple.



Increase Operator Safety

As the manager of any operation, the safety of employees under your care is paramount. Machinery access has come along way since the days of climbing over the tracks of a D10. There is no disputing the benefits of ensuring all your machinery is fitted with a proper access system.

Decrease Maintenance Time

A proper equipment access system doesn't begin and end with the operator. Maintenance personnel not only benefit from the safe access, but also access areas of the machinery much faster, from a stable working platform that is always on the machine.

Why TefSteps?

The Tefol range of equipment ladder access systems are designed, engineered, manufactured, installed and supported by the same company - us. When you control all the elements of a product you can react quickly and change whatever you want. It didn't take us long to come up with the perfect balance of advanced simplicity and technological features.

Impeccable Workmanship & Materials

Made by hand using premium Australian Steel.

All TefSteps ladder access systems are built using premium steel from Australia and are hand made in our manufacturing facility in the Hunter Valley, NSW Australia. The entire ladder is designed, manufactured and assembled by us.


TefSteps LC02 Ladder Control System

The safest and most advanced ladder control system we've ever built.

The TefSteps LC02 is the new brain of every TefSteps ladder access system we build. The ladder controller integrates seemlessly with your machine to ensure safe operation. For example, every time the 'raise' button is pressed the LC02 will only allow ladder movement if the machines primary and/or secondarypark brake is engaged.

The LC02 also provides advanced diagnostic information easily viewable on the touch screen (available on the TEF-LC02 only). From a blown fuse to a park brake curcuit issue, the LC02 will help you reduce time spent diagnosing issues.




Machine Integrated Hydraulics

No additional power source means simpler installation and maintenance.

When we design and engineer products for use in environments such as mine sites we have two key rules. It must be tough and it must be as uncomplicated as possible.

Removing the need for an additional power source on the machine is one less thing to worry about, one less thing that can fail and keeps things nice and simple. Don't re-invent the wheel/track if you don't need to.
