The Advantages of Precast Concrete Stairs
© Circle Homes
How Much Do Our Stairs Cost?
Our precast concrete stairs are inexpensive when compared to a stair cast in situ due to the efficiencies within a controlled factory environment.
How Long Do They Take to Install?
Our curved and helical precast concrete staircases can be installed in a day and often at the same time as the structural flooring. Insitu poured concrete stairs usually take weeks to build, cast, strip and finish.
Are They Safe and Secure?
Precast concrete staircases can be used as soon as they are installed - they provide an immediate working platform. Insitu poured stairs will require alternative access routes to the upper floors while they are being built.
Are They as High-Quality as In Situ Stairs?
Using a flexible steel formwork system in a controlled offsite factory environment enables our precast stairs to be made accurately and to a high quality. Precasting allows the repeated use of formwork, whereas in situ concrete pouring results in the formwork being disposed of on each project.
Why are Precast Concrete Stairs the smarter option over insitu stairs?
Efficiency - Our curved staircases are quick to install and are designed and supplied to exact build fit and specification, accelerating the build process and minimising time spent on site.
Health & Safety – In most cases, once installed, our concrete stairs act as an immediate access route for follow on trades and can easily be installed with the addition of a temporary handrail.
Fire Rating - Our curved concrete staircases are completely fire resistant.
Quality - All precast components are manufactured off-site in an enclosed casting environment, avoiding delays due to inclement weather conditions.
Cost - In most cases, our precast stairs eradicate the use of costly traditional in-situ concrete methods.
Flexibility – Our precast stairs can be installed within a variety of applications including steel framed structures or tied directly into your concrete floors using projecting reinforcement.
