AVS Steps Fit and Forget EXE-5

The EXE-5 is the most advanced cassette step for coachbuilder on the market, completely removing the need for micro switches making the step more reliable than ever. The step includes as standard AVS “Snow Arm” technology, to prevent ice and mud accumulating at the back of the step. An extended step loom removes the need for any external connections further increasing the reliability of the step. The stainless steel bearings utilised in the step are tested to over 1 million cycles ensuring the step just keeps on working. It is available with sensitive edge and illumination, in both fully automatic and fail safe operation all controlled from our unique control box. We have increased the strength of the cassette and given an improved zinc coating the step is more durable than ever before. Like all AVS Steps it has been designed and manufactured at our factory in Wem, Shropshire.

During our “use and abuse” testing the EXE-5 was loaded to 500Kg ((78st) placed centrally (use) and then at corners (abuse) and the step deflection was only 15mm. The EXE-5 range has therefore achieved a SWL of 250Kg (39.3st) and so is ideal for any heavy duty application. Full details of these tests are available on the AVS Steps website.

The EXE range has been the choice of Daimler and Mercedes for 10 years and thousands operate around the world every day. The new EXE-5 range features a green operating light which flashes when the step is moving and a red service light that indicates that the step may been cleaning long before any problems of neglect may occur!

Available to coachbuilders for next day delivery and covered by our VOR Service Level Agreement with Emergency Services, the EXE-5 range is the next generation of fit and forget electric cassette steps from AVS Steps.
