Temporary staircase – Easy Stair provides EASY, SAFE access between floor levels from the very earliest stages of construction.
Easy Stair suits floor to floor heights of 2.65m to 3.05m.
Easy Stair are lightweight temporary site stairs which weigh only 24kg yet are extremely strong and robust on site. They are extremely easy to handle and can be positioned and fixed in just a couple of minutes.
A temporary site staircase is a great alternative to makes life on site much easier by allowing site personnel to walk up a temporary staircase rather than climbing up and down ladders during the early stages of construction.
Easy Stair temporary staircase also improves safety by removing the need for ladders, thereby significantly reducing the risk of falls by personnel climbing up and down ladders to upper floors.
Easy Stair was originally developed as an important safety solution, however, since its launch it has become apparent that of equal importance is the improvement it gives to site working conditions as well as production, financial and technical benefits.

When used in conjunction with temporary guardrails to floor edges, stairwells can be both safe and provide good quality access from the early stages of construction.
Easy Stair is proving to be an important step forward in improving working conditions within the housebuilding industry.
Like many great innovations, simple solutions are quite often the best.
What could be simpler or more beneficial than allowing operatives to walk up a staircase rather than climbing up a ladder?
Many of our early customers are saying:
“What a fantastic product it is, why has no one else thought of it before?”
There is no training required, the lightweight aluminium stair unit simply lifts into position and is secured by two screws. The side handrails then drop into position and the temporary staircase is complete.
Many tasks are carried out during the early stages of construction prior to the installation of the permanent stairs. These tasks could include joinery, brickwork, insulation, window installation to mention just a few.
To carry out this work site personnel are required to either climb up and down a ladder or go up the external scaffold and climb through the window to gain access – both methods far from ideal!
Easy Stair in conjunction with stairwell edge protection removes these risks and allows stairwells to become safe access routes from the earliest point of the construction process.
Safety Platforms know that Easy Stair will radically change the way operatives gain access to upper floors in the housebuilding industry. Nine years ago, we launched “Stairsafe” this is now the safest and most popular stairwell access platform used by plasterers, dryliners and decorators throughout the UK housebuilding industry.
By giving site operatives a fast and yet safe method of access to upper floors this can have obvious benefits to site productivity without compromising quality and safety standards.
Greater productivity and improved build times achieved through improved access will lead to financial savings.
Easy Stair can improve cash flow by allowing the installation (and therefore subsequent payment) of quality hardwood stairs until much later in the build process.
Easy Stair can also reduce the potential for damage to timber stairs again reducing the cost of costly repairs or even worse replacement!
Early viewings of properties by potential purchasers using a safe temporary staircase can allow for early reservations along with the financial benefits this delivers.
Where high specification or bespoke houses are being constructed, Easy Stair allows the later selection and design of the final staircase. This could even be left as a specification choice for the purchaser
The stairs are 0.6m wide and suit floor to floor heights ranging from 2.65m to 3.05m. Full specification on attached sheet
Constructed from lightweight, robust aluminium with low profile anti-slip treads the stairs are robust enough for daily site use yet light enough to be lifted into position by one person. At only 24kg Easy Stair is solid and strong yet is easy to handle weighing less than many aluminium ladders.
The stairs are secured by two screws, double guardrails to both sides simply drop into position.
Easy Stair is EASIER and SAFER & CAN SAVE YOU MONEY
