(EN)The present invention relates to a support apparatus (Ia; Ib) that comprises legs (4, 5) which at one end thereof are connected to each other by means of a hinge arrangement (6) and which at the other end thereof comprise respective support feet (7). The said legs (4, 5) each comprise leg sections (8, 9), which are adjustable with respect to each other for providing an adjustable leg length. The support apparatus (1a; 1b) comprises elements of the operating mechanism that are at least partly integrated in, or are at least partly located at, the hinge arrangement (6). The present invention also relates to a foldable ladder or stepladder (2) or scaffolding or platform ladder (22) in which these support apparatuses (1a, 1b) have been applied for simultaneous adjustment of the legs (4, 5).
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil de support (1a ; 1b) comportant des montants (4, 5) accouplés les uns aux autres à une de leurs extrémités au moyen d'un système de charnière (6) et présentant à l'autre de leurs extrémités des pieds de support (7) respectifs. Lesdits montants (4, 5) comprennent chacun des segments (8, 9) de montant qui sont réglables les uns par rapport aux autres afin de permettre un ajustement de la hauteur des montants. Certains éléments du mécanisme d'actionnement de l'appareil de support (1a ; 1b) sont intégrés au moins en partie au système de charnière (6) ou situés au moins en partie au niveau de celui-ci. La présente invention concerne également une échelle pliante/un escabeau (2) ou un échafaudage/une échelle plateforme (22) dotés de ces appareils de support (1a, 1b) en vue d'un ajustement simultané des montants (4, 5).
