Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined in collaboration with Crest Step-On, Incorporated, to offer the Shure-Step® step stool products to a larger consumer base. David C. DuPont, Founder and CEO of Crest Step-On, started his company when he invented his first version of the Shure-Step® step stool in 1994, and subsequently had it patented in 1995. The idea for this product came from DuPont's own personal experience as a mechanic. While he was working on a customer's 4X4 truck one day, the milk crate he was standing on to achieve the added height he required suddenly shot out from under him, creating some painful injuries. DuPont thought there had to be a better way, so he began to look for a step solution that would not slip, or have to be moved while working on the engine compartment of a large vehicle. Since he couldn't find any that existed already, he decided to set out to make the best and safest step he could.
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, DuPont's Crest Step-On company now designs and manufactures several versions of the Shure-Step® to accommodate many different industry sectors. Besides truck and SUV repair, the Shure-Step® is also a safe and durable step stool solution for airlines and aircraft; fast lube and car wash operation; bus and train companies; healthcare facilities and hospitals; food service and restaurants; supermarkets and retail operations; and virtually any and all offices, warehouses and workplaces. The Shure-Step® is also perfect to use at home, and their Shure-Step® Senior Step is specifically intended to help senior citizens retain their independence safely at home, or while traveling. The innovative and creative design of the Shure-Step® features a special wedge design that prevents it from tipping, and it has the largest standing surface of any plastic utility step in the world, combined with non-skid pads that prevent slipping, even on smooth or wet floors.
The Shure-Step® weighs only 10 pounds, but is incredibly durable. It has been tested by using a wooden block to crush it—it required 2,670 pounds of pressure just to push the block 3 inches into the step, and when the block was removed, the step returned to its original shape within 24 hours and was ready to use again. Virtually indestructible, the Shure-Step® has no wheels or moving parts to break, nor legs, so it can hold more weight, up to 500 pounds. “We are delighted to offer the Shure-Step® step stool solutions designed by Crest Step-On to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “Whether you want to use this step stool in the workplace or at home, the Shure-Step® will be around for years and years of trouble-free service. Thanks to the double walled construction, it is definitely the toughest step ever made!
