When considering what type of temporary stairs and access you’ll be required for your construction project, you must consider several factors, from safety to location, set-up time, load capacity, timeline, budget, and many more. At Layher, we understand the multitude of aspects that you must contemplate. We’ve done it too when designing and building our construction access solutions, our different series of temporary stairs during construction.

What are the safety requirements for your construction project? How will they affect the temporary construction stair during construction? At Layher, whether you choose our comfort stairs, our Allround stringers 200 , or our other products, they all come with safety features such as inner or outer guardrails. .
When an accident occurs that causes an injury or worse-death, work must stop completely on the construction site. An investigation is launched. Construction site accidents big or small increase the cost of a project. Often supplies or equipment are damaged, and your overhead costs will increase dramatically.
Additionally, for injured construction workers, worker’s compensation claims can increase total operating costs. If the person injured is not part of the construction company or a member of the public, a lawsuit is more than likely.
Even if there isn’t an accident, Layher’s temporary stairs are designed to comply with OSHA safety standards (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). Optionally, Layher can provide temporary stairs that also meet IBC (International Building Code) requirements. You are thereby providing the safest possible protocols. If you don’t adhere to these regulations or a set of federally recognized rules, these temporary construction stairs are putting your company at risk, exposing your company to potential fines and other penalties.
In the construction industry, time is money. That certainly applies to temporary stairs used during the construction process as well. The longer it takes to set-up a construction site and get the work started, the more money it costs. That’s why many project managers choose Layher’s temporary stairs during construction. They have a superior connection technology and a lightweight design. This translates to a fast, simple erection and dismantling.
All of Layher’s temporary stairs used in construction projects utilize Allround scaffolding as their basis. This is the industry standard for modular scaffolding because it has unbeatable adaptability and flexibility. As such, all of Layher’s temporary stairs are incredibly adaptable; they can be assembled exceptionally efficiently and precisely.
Regardless of the size of your construction project, what is most important is that you take into consideration all the factors that will affect the temporary stairs and access to it. Safety, flexibility, set-up time are essential, but there might be others that are more critical to your project, such as location or a height requirement.
