Is the staircase a standard product “off the shelf”? No, every staircase is custom-made to meet the client’s specifications.
Do I need to shutter the staircase? The staircase is a permanent pre-cast shuttering system; although we try minimise shuttering, additional shuttering might be required to ensure structural integrity.
Is steel fixing necessary during installation? Yes, minimal steel fixing is required.
Does the staircase need to be propped during installation? Yes, propping is required. Cobute gives assistance on site to set out propping specifications, as they change according to the design.
What strength (Mpa) concrete is required when pouring the concrete? 25Mpa concrete is required unless the Engineer specifies otherwise.
