Staircase Access

Our temporary steel staircase offers an ideal solution for construction workers completing excavations or work across multiple levels. The access staircase's handrails automatically adjust to the correct height, providing safe excavation steps for a range of depths. 

You can hire the temporary staircase in a variety of lengths, which can be installed at variable gradients dependent on the excavation's depth requirements. Complete with a foldable design for ease of storage and transportation, our temporary staircase makes life on site much easier. Once on site, our temporary staircase is easy to install and remove.



Our access equipment range includes our steel and timber* ladders, available in a variety of lengths from 3m to 8m and can accommodate excavation depths of 1.5m to 6.5m.

Our temporary ladders are designed to be lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, offering a convenient way to access excavation trenches and multiple levels with little disruption to construction work.
