Each of the 14 stair rods are spring loaded meaning they lock into position. Lock each rod onto the dust sheet at the back of each stair.

Start at the bottom of the stairs and work your way up to ensure there is no excess dust sheet which may become a trip hazard.


We recommend that all systems are throughly tested upon completion. Whenever possible, completed systems should also be flushed to remove debris.

Hydraulic Installations

In hydraulic based installations, the system may be tested to 1.5 times the working pressure of the system. If higher test pressures are required, then please contact us for further advice.
