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 Modular 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.

Both products are designed for installation on embankments and cuttings, achieving radical savings in cost and time compared with conventional methods of construction.

In 2013 we developed a variant of our modular platform for use as a refuge or lookout post. This provides a place of safety adjacent to the railway track at sites with limited clearance and a steep or degraded embankment.
