Staircases for access to roofs and plant
Talk to Workplace Access & Safety about a staircase for your site – undoubtedly the safest form of access to a raised area. Users can carry equipment safely and comfortably – even without a particularly high level of skill or fitness.
Staircases can be built internally or externally at gradients of between 26.5 and 45 degrees. Workplace Access & Safety can also assist with design solutions for other gradients: cleated walkways for less than 26.5 degrees and ladders for gradients of more than 45 degrees.
Some of the key considerations for staircases are:
- Strong, reliable and built to last
- CodeMark™ approved to comply with Australia’s National Construction Code
- StandardsMark™ approved to comply with AS 1657:2013
- Custom built to meet your sites requirements
- Extraordinarily cost-effective
- Tested for slip resistance in a NATA™-accredited fall prevention laboratory
- Installed by certified installers
Staircases are designed and tested for optimal performance
- Designed for a dead load of the structure plus a superimposed loading of not less than 2.5kpa uniformly distributed
- Treads are designed for a distributed load of not less than 2.2kN per lineal metre of staircase width or a concentrated loading of 1kN, whichever loading produces the more adverse effect
