Safe access between different elevations is a serious and ongoing problem in construction. This can be either on a slope or between different floors in new construction. Traditionally contractors will build wooden stair systems to solve this, but these are less than safe when wet or icy, and there is also the problem of disposal once the project is complete.
Tuff Step provides a safe and cost effective alternative, especially when labour is included in the comparison. Made from aluminum and polypropylene plastic, Tuff Step is lightweight, easily configures to any slope between 0 and 60 degrees, and sheds snow, ice and mud. Tuff Step will normally provide safe footing in just about any condition.
A major contractor recently concluded that Tuff Step is often more economical to use than custom built access. Plus it can be reused on other projects and reconfigured to suit different needs.
When used on sloping ground Tuff Step sections can be joined together for just about any length needed. Sections can be secured to the ground, or, if that is not possible (i.e. on concrete), sections can be joined together and the entire assembly can be secured at the top. Tuff Step can be used with no handrails, handrails on both sides, or just on one side.
The Tuff Step family includes a system designed specifically for free standing stairs between different elevations in construction. Need a movable temporary stair system between stories under construction? No problem. This lightweight and reusable system will provide safe access for construction.
When contractors are looking for safe, cost effective, reusable access between different elevations in construction, Tuff Step is the way to go.
