Innovations are a matter of principle for Hailo - and quality a matter of tradition
Our trademark - the red Hailo dot - stands for the ultimate in quality and safety, something that our customers can rely on. This is guaranteed by our many years of experience, innovative product developments, and our DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 certified quality management system.

Innovative products - creative marketing
As a quality brand, we are a strong partner for the retail industry. We actively support our retailers with innovative advertising and sales promotions. Their success is our goal!

We’ve always been an ideas company - ideas that make home life safer, easier and more enjoyable. At Hailo, these form the hub around which Rudolf Loh set up the company in 1947, since when Hailo has continued to develop and today is a global company distributing top quality products in more than 60 countries.


Added Safety Step By Step
Ladders and folding steps are products which require high safety standards. They need to measure up to the trust shown in the Hailo brand in their day-to-day use. That’s why Hailo has developed and produced all its ladders in Germany using experienced personnel for over 60 years now.

Material approval test
The materials and components Hailo uses are tested for their suitability and quality. For example, for absolute safety we use only punch rivets for securing the steps. Only after these have been subjected to endurance testing under - in some cases - improbably tough conditions in the laboratory and in practice is approval given for series production.

Eddy-current test
The rails are formed from a special aluminium alloy and are subject to eddy current testing in a single pass. After all, only an utterly strong and flawlessly welded rail can guarantee our legendary Hailo safety.


Manual dimensional check
Experienced staff test the exact and consistently precise strength throughout our the rails - we know that safety reassures!

Load testing
During the manufacturing process, the riveted joints are tested automatically and 100% on every ladder. The Hailo brand stands for products which offer an especially long lifetime, and every ladder needs to be 100% safe from the first time you set foot on it to the last day of use.

Final visual inspection
In addition, each ladder is then subjected to a final visual inspection. Here, the ladders are closely scrutinised according to specific testing criteria. Only ladders that pass this check can carry the Hailo trademark.
