Stair Systems and Ladders
Metal Stairs & Stair Systems
All Panel Built prefab stairs, metal stairs, metal railing and components are engineered, fabricated and powder coated at our plant for a lasting finish and fast delivery. Each metal stair system is manufactured to your specification allowing for various sizes, heights and specialty metal hand rail that meets OSHA and IBC codes. To determine if you need IBC or OSHA we will first need to determine what local building code requires. There are typically higher standards for areas that are open to the public and high traffic areas than areas that are utilized only by employees and low traffic areas. In general terms. The International Building Code (IBC) regulates any set of stairs used by the public, including any stairway that connects a building to a public space. These regulations must account for the safety of every type of person — including children and the elderly. Many businesses have private facilities where stairs are not for public use. They can include areas like factory floors and manufacturing spaces where only designated employees work. Therefore, they are not bound by the IBC. Instead, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Fixed Industrial Stair regulations (1910.24) govern the design, construction and use of both interior and exterior stairs used to access equipment, machinery, tanks, elevated platforms, other floors or pits.
