Layher Stairs & Access Scaffolding Systems

Layher North America offers a wide range of Stairs & Access Scaffolding Systems. These range from durable public access stairs and temporary construction stairs to stairway towers for industrial scaffolding and public access ramps.

All of Layher’s products are compatible with the Layher Allround® Scaffolding system, which has become the industry standard for modular scaffolding. This system is widely employed in construction, industrial, and commercial applications.

Benefits of Using Layher Stairs & Access Scaffolding Systems

Layher Stairs & Access Scaffolding Systems offer guaranteed safety as they comply with the  Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the International Building Codes’ (IBC) regulations for construction and public access. 

These systems are known for their high load capacity. Their lightweight design, coupled with superior connection technology, makes assembling and disassembling a fast process. And their modular design makes them adaptable to a wide array of applications for maximum flexibility and reuse. 

From internal access to public access stairway towers, Layher’s scaffolding stairs are adaptable. This allows them to meet the requirements of each job.

Layher Public Access & Temporary Stairs

Layher’s public access stairs are renowned for their flexibility, reusability, and durability. Using the Allround® Scaffolding system as their basis, public access stairs can be seamlessly adapted to a wide range of building applications, including emergency egress routes. 

Layher’s temporary stairs are constructed using the same durable and flexible scaffolding system. Due to their modular design, they can be adapted to different construction and commercial applications.

Public Access Stairs – Promoting Safety & Accessibility 

Our public access stairs offer a long service life and are manufactured in Germany. All components are durable and corrosion-resistant thanks to the hot-dip galvanizing process.

Why Public Access Stairs are Important

During construction, buildings, housing, roadways, and other high-traffic areas that are accessible to the public might require temporary access. One solution is public access stairs.

Public access stairs have various important features. They typically must withstand higher loads than regular scaffold stairs as they are designed for the public. Typically, a PE is involved in the design to ensure the safety of the stairs for the public and compliance with local building codes. 

Other important features of public access stairs are child safety guardrails as well as handrails. 

Temporary Construction Stairs – Promoting Safety On the Job Site

Our construction access solutions include modular stairs, internal access solutions, Allround scaffolding comfort stairs, and stairway towers. These are all manufactured using Layher’s durable hot-dip galvanizing process, ensuring a long service life, adaptability, and reusability. 

In the construction industry, time is money—an adage that also applies to the temporary scaffold stairs used during the construction process. The longer it takes to set up a construction site and get work started, the more money it costs. That’s why many project managers choose Layher’s temporary stairs for their construction projects. These stairs are equipped with superior connection technology and a lightweight design, which allows for quick assembly and disassembly. 

What are Temporary Staircases?

Also known as portable stairs, temporary staircases give workers and non-employees access to various areas of a construction site. While most mobile stairs are primarily used by workers to complete their construction tasks, moveable stairs can also be erected to give the general public access to entrances and other areas while construction is being completed.

What are the Benefits of Installing a Temporary Steel Staircase at Your Job Site?

The best material for temporary building stairs is metal. It has the strength and durability required to provide long-lasting use. While most people prefer steel staircases over aluminum ones (due to their added strength and rigidity), both options are valid for construction sites. 

Here are some of the major reasons why companies opt for temporary steel staircases: 

Quick and Easy to Set Up

With a good set of modular temporary steel stairs, you can assemble the stair sections on your own. Thankfully, you won’t need a lot of downtime, the way you would when installing permanent stairs.

Less Expensive to Install and Plan for

The simple fact is that temporary stairs are less expensive than permanent options. For one, the planning costs are much lower. Additionally, the installation can be orders of magnitude less expensive than permanent options.

Easier Access to the Scaffolding

Oftentimes, access to the scaffold is performed via a ladder. The person accessing the ladder must climb those. In addition, tools and materials need to be transported, usually with a rope or material lift if available. 

Using temporary stairs makes access to the scaffold easier. Stairs are typically considered safer and quicker than ladder access. In addition, stairs allow users and especially trade to transport tools and materials. 

No Space Commitment

Since these stairs are temporary, you won’t need to commit to the surrounding space. When the stairs aren’t needed, you can simply store them elsewhere and free up space in your facility.

Durable and Sturdy

Steel is a great option for stairway steps because it lasts a long time and offers a great deal of rigidity. For nearly any application of temporary stairs, durability and strength are critically important. 

Access Scaffolding and Stairway Towers

Layher’s Access Scaffolding and Stairway Towers are ideally suited to temporary access solutions. The stairway towers are assembled with Allround® Scaffolding’s ledgers, decks, diagonals, vertical standards, and other components. 

What is a Scaffold Stair Tower?

Scaffold stair towers are used to access specific locations on construction and industrial sites. These include building entry points or valves in industrial applications. To ensure the safety of all workers and visitors, proper assembly, maintenance, and use of scaffold stair towers should always be observed.
