For over forty years Genuine Dura-Stilts® have remained the world wide, undisputed choice of professional stilt users.
Since the early sixties, the innovative key features pioneered and patented by Dura-Stilts® established them as the industry leader of articulating leg extension devices (stilts). Dura-Stilts® comfort, strength to weight ratio and reliability set new stilt standards which changed the construction industry’s perception of stilts from a novelty to a legitimate industrial tool.
Only Dura-Stilts® Pioneered Innovative Features Such As:
- Dual Action Springs: Upper and lower action springs along with their tension adjustment brought about precise control over both forward and rearward stilt walking actions, resulting in a close duplication of the user’s natural ankle movement. This new level of control brought easier balance, greater control, and less fatigue for the user. Properly adjusted, Dura-Stilts® act more like an extension of the user’s natural stride and balance.
- Replaceable Nylon Bearings and Adjustment Sleeves: Replaceable bearing surfaces resulted in a noticeably smoother walk, smoother adjustment and dramatically extended stilt life over other brands.
- Lock Nuts: At all crucial pivot and connecting points for greater stilt reliability and safety.
- Self-locking Strap Buckles: For less slip and greater stilt safety. Dura-Stilts® was also first to provide the added comfort of wider one-inch foot straps.
- Captive Lock Washers on Wing Bolts: Helps assure wing bolts remain tight once the user has properly tightened them for improved safety.
- Wing Bolts Extended Smooth Shank: Dramatically reduces adjustment hole wear of the extension tubes. Less adjustment hole wear means less wobble, greater stability and longevity.
- Replaceable Screw-on Soles: Greater ease in replacing worn soles to help maintain sole traction and walking comfort.
