Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19714431A1] Working ramps or platforms that can be easily assembled are required to carry out certain tasks. The invention relates to a multipurpose work support with folding support bars (1) on its ends. Said support bars are in turn connected to folding connecting bars (2) to prevent bars from opening too widely and to ensure stability. The support and connecting bars (1, 2) can be folded parallel to the multipurpose support beams when not in use. Both outer sides of the multipurpose support consist of overlapping beams. The walking surface is made from a line of steps which provide a flat surface (7) when folded. The front sides of the steps are hingedly connected to the top beam and the rear sides of the steps are hingedly connected to the bottom beam.
