RapidPanel™ Stairs

 RapidPanel™ Stairs

RapidPanels™ can also be used to construct faster and high-strength staircases which are also cost effective.  Anchored into floor and roof slabs and concreted on site, RapidPanel™ stairways use 40% reduction concrete and 30% lower labor time hence takes much lesser time than traditional concrete staircases with no additional reinforcement steel or shuttering required.
