Quality matters

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.

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 (endurance test for HAILO stepladders with 50,000 load cycles at 150kg equates to 5x more cycles than the prescribed standard for domestic use) 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.

HAILO waste bins – top quality

Waste bins are long-lasting consumer goods. That’s why HAILO’s proven quality plays a key role. Our excellence in metalworking and mechanics gives us an advantage which continues to justify the trust placed in the brand even after all these years.

HAILO Built-In Technology

A kitchen needs to be perfectly equipped if you want to enjoy cooking or any of the other work that goes on in a kitchen. Waste disposal may not be the first thing that comes to mind in that regard, but it has a significant role to play when it comes to exploiting all the possibilities of the modern kitchen. The products should still work perfectly and make life easier, even after many years.

All HAILO Systems are being tested according to the toughest Quality-Control-Requirements. We would not release any new series for our markets, unless they have, successfully, passed min. 100,000 pullout cycles lifetime tests, with increased trash-load and front-panels attached.

That’s because we understand "Made in Germany" to mean precisely what our customers expect of the market leader in fitted kitchen technology: first-class quality and innovative solutions that make working in the kitchen easier and more enjoyable. That’s what you can expect from us and what you should measure us by, because we want to fully meet this standard at all times!

"The dynamic changes in the market and our know-how in  kitchen built-in-technology made us a reliable partner for the leading kitchen manufacturers. HAILO provides innovative concept solutions."
