Because the lifting feet on the Escalera
push straight down on the step with a vertical thrust (see picture on right), it can climb
any type of step surface. You can climb waxed wood, wet tile, an icy curb, or in this
extreme case, a three hundred pound block of ice. The Escalera can even climb a Teflon
step. Teflon is the slipperiest substance made by man. The Escalera StairClimber is
popular in mountainous areas. This is because the homes often have many steps. The
Escalera StairClimber can climb a snow covered or icy steps. One proud customer told
us..."I've been more places with my Escalera than with a 4-wheel drive!"
