Treadform® Stair System
Treadform® is our unique precast stair system, designed and developed specifically to improve safety and to save time and cost onsite. It is born out of our many years of experience designing and producing stair balustrades.
It solves many on-site challenges.
The stair core of a building is a hub of activity and an area where many trades converge bringing many challenges: scaffold edge protection, void protection, lifting through the voids, temporary edge protection, removal and percussion drilling….
- It removes the need for temporary edge protection
- Provides immediate edge protection for the stair installer
- Saves the contractor the time having to remove edge protection
- Saves installation time of balustrade
- Removes drilling on site & potential rebar clashes
