Accurate, level treads for concrete fire stairs

Are you having issues with grinding back or topping up risers so that they’re BCA compliant? Have a look at Fast Tread®, you’ll get accurate treads for fire stairs on every flight… and on every project, guaranteed!

Our screed fold explained.

The fold at the front of the tread & the fold at the back of the tread line up together perfectly… it’s our ‘Fast Tread® screed fold’.

So here’s how it works; your concreter simply screeds the concrete using these two special folds as a guide, and there you have it…

>> level & accurate treads, every time (and, that’s our promise)!

What this means.

Every Fast Tread® riser is manufactured with these special folds. It’s no more effort on your part, but it’s important to ensure you have accurate treads for your fire stairs so your project handover runs smoothly.

Most importantly, if you get it right in the first go will save you time as well because there’ll be no wasted time rectifying the non-compliant stairs.

  • waste no time with rectification for BCA compliance
  • eliminate delays when you’re trying to get your OC certificate

  • rest assured with Fast Tread for accuracy & dependability
