153 metres of temporary staircases hit the heights in Halifax


UKSSH supplied 153 metres of HAKI temporary stair towers for the refurbishment of three blocks of flats in Halifax.


Erected by High Peak Scaffold, each tower measured an impressive 51 metres tall to reach the top floor of the 18 storey buildings and – in addition to the temporary stair towers – featured eight-man personnel/ material hoists with run-off scaffolds.

The project showed the importance of UKSSH’S stringent quality controls: UKSSH only stock genuine HAKI components and ensure that all returns are audited to ensure that “copy systems” don’t creep into their yard.

Gary Griffiths, MD of UKSSH, says that customers are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of only allowing genuine components on their site: “Irrespective of the legal arguments pertaining to trademarks, the fundamental issues are safety and quality: Authentic components are manufactured in controlled conditions to rigorous standards. One inadequate weld produced in a backstreet sweatshop can compromise an entire structure and threaten the lives of every worker on the site”.
