On multi-storey builds, project managers want to open stairwells to site staff and contractors as soon as they are built, and any stair being used during construction needs a handrail system.
It is uneconomic to install traditional welded handrails on a floor by floor basis, and they are typically installed late in the project programme.
Because site staff and contractors need to move between floors, project managers must install temporary post and rail systems to ensure safe access. These systems are usually rented, and over time, costs can be significant.
For projects that do not require architectural finishes in stairwells, Moddex galvanised modular handrails offer a new level of convenience and flexibility to project managers combined with meaningful cost savings.
With Moddex modular, no-weld systems, the handrail is installed at the same rate as the floors – the modular handrail can move behind the builder, and the final permanent handrail is installed progressively throughout the construction process. The benefits are clear – compliant modular handrail with no cranes, no welding and no temporary barrier rental costs.
On an active building site and despite the best efforts of site staff, barrier systems might get damaged. With Moddex modular systems, the damaged components are quickly and easily replaced without impacting the budget.
Moddex installation teams get in fast and out fast, so stairwells are open and accessible to all site staff and contractors.
For project managers that means compliant handrail with maximum flexibility, minimal disruption and meaningful cost savings.
With Moddex, everything fitsTM
