Aluminum trailer steps provide fast, secure access to construction trailers, mobile field offices, portable classrooms, and modular buildings, and can be adjusted to meet any threshold and configuration requirements. They are a sturdier and longer-lasting alternative to wood stairs, and a lighter, maintenance-free alternative to steel stairs.
REDD Team is one of the foremost manufacturers of high quality aluminum access products in the nation, including aluminum stairs (OSHA and general code), universal stair systems, aluminum walkways, ADA wheelchair ramps, pedestrian bridges, and aluminum viewing platforms. We can meet your most exacting requirements.
- The Dura-Grip General Code Aluminum Stair is designed for portable building access that must meet IBC and ADA codes. They are lighter in weight than similar stair systems, and feature strong slip-resistant and self-draining decks. Assemble and install them in minutes, and relocate them whenever necessary.
- The Dura-Grip OSHA Stair is ideal for field offices, construction trailers and modular buildings that need to meet OSHA Regulations for Walking/Working Surfaces. Designed for safety and convenience, these stairs will ensure that you meet the code requirements for fixed industrial stairs that will improve workplace safety.
These aluminum steps are fabricated from 6000 series aluminum alloy with 6061-T6 for structural strength, and are paint-free, rust-resistant, non-magnetic, and non-sparking. They can be used for temporary access or permanently installed as fixed industrial stairs and are fully compatible with our modular ramp solutions. They can also be custom fabricated for specific applications and lengths.
Why Aluminum Stairs are a Great Choice
REDD Team aluminum stairs and other products offer the best in safety, simplicity, versatility and overall value. From design and detailing to manufacturing and shipping, we provide access solutions for most industrial and modular applications. Aluminum is the best choice in terms of:
Durability: Aluminum is ideal for applications where high-strength and durability are important– from vehicles to fighter jets to shark cages. It’s about one-third the weight of steel and, depending on the alloy and processing technique used, can be stronger than steel. Components can be made thicker and stronger, but are lighter. This makes the metal remarkably useful for products like stairs and ramps that need to be picked up and relocated often.
Maintenance: Stairs and steps made from wood or steel need regular scraping, sanding, painting and sealing to keep them in working condition and looking good. Aluminum does not absorb water and won’t rust, rot or crack. It has a natural protective oxide coating that can also withstand highly-corrosive settings, such as marine environments. It’s also immune to termites and other pests that can damage wood.
Value: At first glance, site-built wooden ramps and steps may appear to be less expensive than their aluminum counterparts. However, the prices of aluminum products have steadily decreased, while wood prices continue to rise. Once the cost of maintaining wood steps and rails is factored in, aluminum steps provide a superior long-term value.
These are just a few of the factors that make aluminum steps and stairs indispensable in oilfield and mining, construction, automotive, aerospace and numerous other industries. When you need to quickly set up an access solution, aluminum is an exceptional choice.
