KITE Access - Temporay Access Stairs

A superior solution that offers a safe alternative to makeshift wooden structures. Modularity and universal purpose allows the system to be used wherever there is a need of safe overcoming both small and significant level differences. Their main advantage is the possibility of safe, repeated assembly without losing its performance properties. Additionally, they have smooth angle regulation for better adjustment to required conditions. In order to increase visibility at the construction site, handrails are painted in yellow.

 

Applications

  • As temporary stairs – to overcome small and significant differences in ground level of various pitches (excavations, banks, building tiers)

  • As temporary gangway – for road works and construction site excavations and to overcome trenches

  • As staircases – to overcome level differences (buildings, deep foundation excavations e.g. underground parking lots)

  • As a step-over platform to overcome small obstacles like walls or pipelines

Key features of the system

  • Low weight - easy transport, assembly and disassembly

  • Wide range of possible angles: 0 to 50 degrees

  • Modularity - available in modules from 3 to 18 steps in a single flight

ALUMIUNIUM

Length & Setup

Temporary aluminium stairs system can consists of 6 basic modules of 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 steps. Angle regulation is possible from 0° to 50° for modules from 3 to 12 steps, and from 25° to 50° for 15 and 18 step modules. The stairs, similar to their steel counterpart, are to be assembled on a previously prepared surface attaching the lower and the upper part. The table below shows basic parameters of the available modules.

* Weight includes stairs and two guardrails

Stairs location, i.e. their angle and distance between the lower and upper ends are determined on the diagram shown to the right as follows:

  • Determine the excavation depth and mark the value on a vertical axis

  • Taking into account the number of steps in the set, determine the angle of the flight of stairs - leading a horizontal line to the point of intersection with the curve

  • Determine the distance of the point of setting of the lower part of the stairs - vertical line to the intersection 
    with horizontal axis.

Step-Over Platform

The TAS step-over platform is a modular and easy-to-assemble solution which consists of a platform and two TAS flights of stairs. The step-over stairs can be used to overcome obstacles such as pipelines, walls, or as a cross-over platform over excavations, trench boxes and small openings. Due to the ability to use 3 or 6 step flights, the height of the platform can be adjusted to current needs.

Gangway & Truss

STEEL

In a basic version of TAS gangway, angle regulation from 0 to 50 degrees applies only for modules from 3 to 12 steps. When it comes to 15 and 18 steps long stairs, the basic regulation is from 25 to 50 degrees. In order to enable using the longest variants as gangways, we have extended the product offer with a truss.

All the possible TAS gangway connections with a truss are presented below.

Transport & Storage

TAS stairs should be transported and stored with disassembled railings and folded to reduce the space necessary for transport and storage. Use transport grips to lift the stairs. Stairs weight and dimension depend on a chosen variant.

KITE Access - Temporary Access Stairs - Transport & Storage

TAS stairs can be stored one on the top of the other. In order to secure the set from moving to the side, you can use transport grips to prevent the stairs from moving to the sides – they should be set and locked with a mounting screw. See the picture below.
