Friendly Passage / Stairs

Friendly Passage
Friendly Passage

It is hard to bring up or take down heavy items using traditional stairs, because the stairs is not suitable for carrying them. The “Friendly Passage” is a curling board hidden in on side of the traditional stairs. It can be extended to one third width of the stairs, forming a flat slope along the stairs. This is convenient for moving heavy items up and down. It can also be reset into the side by pushing the handle when it is not in use, so that keep the normal using space for people. It is practical with a simple structure.
