In the construction area it is necessary to provide pedestrian communication between different floors, on which the works are performed: on several floors of buildings, excavations, slopes, embankments etc. To meet the expectations, TLC Group designed safe and versatile temporary stairs and staircases. The stairs may be set against a floor at the angle of from 25° to 50°, which allows the users to adapt them to terrain conditions.

TAS modular temporary staircases allow for a great flexibility when it comes to its height and exits. The system consists of two modules – BOTTOM and STANDARD ones, and TAS temporary stairs. Standard module is always used with 12-steps stairs, while the flight of steps for the bottom one is determined by the required height of the staircase.

The structure of temporary staircases is manufactured in accordance with EN 12811: “Temporary work equipment”. The staircases meet the requirements for bearing capacity of class 1 (1 kN per 200 x 200 mm surface, acc. to EN 12811). The TLC stairs and temporary staircases are suitable for unassisted assembly using a crane. They may be configured up to the height of 8.5 m. Proper seating and anchoring of the temporary staircase and stairs will ensure safe and comfortable carrying of power tools, small equipment and construction materials.

Our temporary stairs are available to buy directly from us and, due to their modular nature, can be provided exactly as to your requirements.
