About Kwik-Step

The Kwik-Step Modular Stairway System was invented in 1997 and patents have been granted in the UK, Europe, US, Canada and Hong Kong. It was awarded Millennium Products status by the Design Council as one of the top 1000 UK innovations from 1995-2000.

The Galvanized Steel Platform System was added to our range in 2010, initially for retro-fitting inspection platforms under motorway bridges. This followed a customer's request for a value-engineered alternative to the conventional system of excavating an inspection ledge adjacent to the abutment wall.

In 2013 we introduced a parallel range of platforms using Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP). These achieve significant savings in weight and are ideal for remote locations with restricted access on the rail network. They are versatile, robust and non-conductive providing key benefits for challenging sites and electrification schemes.

We operate on a ‘supply only’ basis and our systems are designed for simple assembly by the customer or their contractor, aided by our standard instructions together with a site-specific set of notes and diagrams.

All our products are designed for manual handling and installation with hand tools, achieving radical savings in time and cost compared with conventional methods of construction. We have worked extensively with Atkins to quantify the savings - and further details are available on request.

So far we have supplied in excess of 1300 stairways and 70 platforms.
