A Guide to Scaffolds & Stairs



In the world of construction, safety and efficiency are paramount. This is particularly true when it comes to navigating the heights and depths of a construction site. One of the most critical aspects of this is the use of scaffolding and stairs and SafeSmart access offers a wide range of innovative solutions.

Scaffolding with Stairs

Large construction projects often involve multiple levels, making safe and efficient access a challenge. Traditional scaffolding can be time-consuming to install and difficult to navigate. Stair Access Towers are a complete scaffold staircase to solve this problem. From buildings to ground or highway infrastructure to ground, these towers create a stairway scaffolding solution that is incredibly easy to build.

Stair Access Towers are typically designed specifically by client engineers or SafeSmart’s in-house engineers and are made from the  Proscaf modular scaffolding system.

Stairs During Construction for Building Stairwells

Working in high rises can be a challenging task with workers often having to carry heavy tools and equipment up and down incomplete staircases, especially when stairwells are installed last. This can be risky and inefficient for this purpose.

SafeSmart’s Portable Stairs solve this problem by providing a safe and efficient means of access. Their adjustable design allows them to fit perfectly in the stairwell space, and their robust construction ensures they can withstand the heavy traffic of a construction site.

Stairs During Civil Works

Civil projects often involve working in challenging environments, such as uneven ground or high batters. Traditional access solutions can be unsafe or impractical in these situations. SafeSmart’s AdjustaStairs are designed to overcome these challenges as pre-fabricated and designed portable stairs.

This portability allows them to be easily moved and adjusted to fit nearly any site conditions, ensuring workers can safely access the work area.

Stairs for Maintenance Tasks

Maintenance tasks often require workers to reach high or hard-to-reach areas. Traditional ladders can be unstable and unsafe while working on or around stairs. SafeSmart’s Mini Mobile Scaffold Aluminium and Aluminium Scaffold Tower Double Width provide a stable platform for workers to perform their tasks safely. Their easy assembly and disassembly save valuable time, and their lightweight design makes them easy to move around the site.

Scaffolding for Stretcher Access

Traditional scaffolding often lacks the necessary width or stability to accommodate a stretcher and in the event of an emergency, this can be a matter of life and death. SafeSmart’s Portable Stairs are designed to overcome this problem with a wide design and sturdy construction that make them suitable for stretcher access, ensuring that injured workers can be safely evacuated.

Aluminium Stairs

Traditional steel or wood stairs can be heavy, prone to rust or rot, and require regular maintenance. Aluminium stairs, such as SafeSmart’s Aluminium Stairs and SmartStairs, are a great alternative to stairway or stairwell scaffolding, while SmartStairs is a complete aluminium staircase system.

Lightweight, resistant to rust, and requiring minimal maintenance, their durable construction ensures they can withstand harsh conditions, making them an ideal choice for construction sites. Hand railings and safety mesh or barriers line the stairs from top to bottom.


In conclusion, the right stairs and scaffolding solutions can significantly enhance safety and efficiency on a construction site. SafeSmart Access offers a comprehensive range of work stairs designed to meet the diverse needs of various industries.
