EDGE’s Portable Stairs provides an easy solution for your temporary or permanent steel stair needs. Two important aspects of a job site are access and safety. Entering hard-to-reach or at-height locations can be dangerous and time-consuming without the right equipment. Portable stairs with handrails are a fast and convenient way to link locations with different heights temporarily or for long-term solutions. Appropriate for interior or exterior use and designed for OSHA and IBC standards and regulations, improve accessibility and keep workers safe with high-quality portable stairways.
EDGE’s Portable Stair Systems
Whether you are looking for a temporary or permanent metal stairway, our portable stairs provide safe access to modular offices, job site trailers, temporary housing, manufacturing facilities, or other industrial and construction site applications. Our portable stairway system is configurable and customizable for your temporary or portable aluminum stair needs.
Durable and Versatile Design
Create a safer work environment with this durable and versatile portable stair system made in the U.S.A. Galvanized stainless steel construction enables the portable stairway to excel in harsh environments and resist corrosion. A standard feature of these moveable stairs includes a large slip-resistant platform for the steps. This galvanized slip-resistant steel platform is 48” x 48” and rated 50 lbs psf for OSHA compliant models or 48” x 60” and rated 100 lbs psf for IBC compliant models. Portable stairway platform heights are available from 28” to 63”.
Portable stairs feature galvanized slip-resistant steel. OSHA compliant designs feature 42” wide stairs with 7” rise by 11” run. IBC Compliant stairs are a minimum of 44” wide (36” wide in areas served by less than 50 people). Multiple entry options are available for steps and allow positioning to the platform from either the front, one side, or two sides.
Handrails are 42” high powder-coated aluminum with standard balusters for OSHA compliant needs. Railings and guardrails for IBC compliant needs are 42” high powder-coated aluminum and handrails of 34” on both sides of stairwells and balusters with 4” spacing. Standard powder coated safety yellow or other colors are available.
The portable stairs with handrails bolt together without the need of special tools or welding.
Field Adjustable Legs
Stairway telescopic legs are field adjustable to accommodate uneven terrain to keep the platform height level to your door or access point. Field adjustable telescopic legs allow the unit to adapt to your terrain for ease of setting up and leveling. While the stairway legs are field adjustable, the platform height is not adjustable.
OSHA/ IBC Compliance
EDGE’s portable stairway systems are designed to be completely compliant with OSHA and IBC standards and regulations. There are two different configurations available to meet (1) OSHA or (2) IBC and OSHA standards. We are happy to help you determine which configuration best meets your requirements.
