What are the Benefits of Modular Stairs?

Modular stairs offer multiple benefits to your operations, with safety and efficiency at the forefront of their design. With just about every sector being an ideal fit for rolling stairs and platforms, adding them to your business is a great way to increase production while adhering to OSHA & OH&S standards. Thanks to their versatility, modular stairs are a common fixture in the industrial sectors, where the need to safely access items from high up is a common challenge. Platforms and rolling stairs not only make it easy to reach elevated items, but to do so with minimal risk to your team, especially with the addition of self closing safety swing gates and fall protection.

Along with the industrial sector, modular stairs are ideal for use in the following areas:

  • Food & Beverage
  • Agriculture
  • Roofing
  • HVAC contractors
  • Maintenance Industries
  • Energy Sectors
  • Material Handling, and many more
