Yes. The UpStep RS3 was originally manufactured in Germany, where it was first tested in labs and on the road over the course of many winters with last mile-delivery fleets. Now that we’ve brought the manufacturing to North America, you can best bet that it’s built for our winters too!

As for ice and snow in all those moving parts - the UpStep RS3 is specifically designed to be able to resist ice build-up by breaking it free when the step is deployed as you open the door.

No. The UpStep RS3 has premium coating that is designed to specifically resist rusting, no matter the weather conditions. This was one of the biggest concerns with some of our initial cargo van fleet clients trying this product, which is why we insisted it had to be the best coating only. Also, the bearings are plastic (tribopolymer), not metal - so these don’t corrode either.
