Product overview

Strong, sturdy and light, this handy Atom work platform is all you need for tackling those small DIY jobs around the house. It’s perfect for painting, wallpaper hanging, installing fittings or doing any repair jobs where you need some extra height.

The folding design means you can get it set up in seconds without any hassle, and when you’re done, it’s tidy and compact enough to easily go in the car or ute. Order yours today.

Platform arrived within a few days of ordering. It has been absolutely great as our new home is on a level section and single stories, so to paint my spouting it was a god send. So light yet very stable.

I was looking at step ladders when I saw this on Trade Tested. I checked the measurements and believe it gave me much more stability when needing to change light bulbs, mount curtains, trim trees etc. I have only had it a short while and have already used it for many things. It is simple to use and stands up vertically. I feel more confident working up high now and have also realised it works well as a bench seat!

At 80 years of age it becomes a little difficult and unsteady to do those little things off a ladder that are just out of reach, but to put my ladder beside the Atom Platform, I can easily access the platform and feel much more comfortable and safer doing those little jobs. The only gripe would be is that it is not to difficult to step backwoods off the end of the platform, a little handrail accessory would be a good safety factor in this area.
