TRADSTAIR is an independent access stair system designed to provide safe and efficient access to on-site work locations.  The system is comprised of high quality manufactured prefabricated components and provides a flexible and versatile system which is designed for use as an independent tower, or for integration into other structures.

Utilising different sized stair flights, the TRADSTAIR has flexibility, allowing towers to follow progressive scaffolding / works, or to give full access where required.

The design makes the system extremely robust, with personnel loads exceeding those of alternative stair systems.

The TRADSTAIR’s design makes it faster and simpler to build than other stair systems.

 

QUALITY & COMPLIANCE

All components are manufactured to our design from high quality galvanised steel, with the tower conforming to all current relevant British and European Standards.  Through calculation and independent testing, the system has proved to meet or exceed all the required criteria to satisfy both BS EN 12810 and BS EN 12811.

TRADSTAIR is tested in line with the strict requirements of the ISO 9001 series of quality management systems, and the system has passed the rigorous NASC audit process and is fully compliant with their Code of Practice.

TRADSTAIR has a fully detailed erection guide including sections on component recognition, tying points, safe heights and safety notes.

Standards

Standards

These items form the vertical members of the scaffold and are made from 48.3mm diameter x 3.2mm thick high-grade steel tube. They incorporate the distinctive cluster of connection pockets which are welded at 500mm centres. The top pockets of lowest cluster are located at 385mm from the bottom of the standard, to the upper surfaces of the pockets. The pockets are the fixing points for the horizontal components of the system such as Ledger Beams Single Tube Ledgers and Purlin Rails.

At the top of the standards, there is a 170mm crimped spigot that allows the vertical connection of further standards and there are corresponding drilled holes, at the bottom and top of each standard, to allow two standards to be bolted together.
