From design to installation
– the fastest fire stairs on the market


All multistorey buildings need compliant fire stairs. But getting traditional formwork fire stairs designed and installed, while keeping downtime to a minimum, meeting various contractor work schedules and cleaning up after construction, can be time-consuming and costly for builders.

Time pressure can lead to defects, delays and costly blowouts. And access to the live deck during the build is difficult, not to mention a safety risk.

RapidRise Firestairs solves these problems out of the box with fire isolated stairs compliant to all Australian standards.

Next Generation Fire Stairs Solution

Rapid Rise Firestairs are the innovative, next gen solution to fire escape stairs in multistorey buildings.

Sometimes described as core stairs, egress stairs or fire isolated stairs, their function remains the same – to allow occupants to leave a building quickly and safely. But the process of getting them designed, delivered and installed has never been easier or more cost effective than with technologically driven Rapid Rise Firestairs.

Why Choose Rapid Rise Firestairs?


Rapid from design to install.

Digital technology adoption allows for speed of design in the planning stage to efficient scheduling in the production phase and the quickest possible installation. Rapid Rise are your fastest fire stair solution.

Design integration made simple.

Rapid Rise Firestairs are modular and prefabricated so they’re easy to implement into your plans. We will provide you with CAD 3D models to input into your design software at the design stage. This lowers your risk and saves you time not just during construction but from the design stage onward.

Improve site safety.

Fall from heights is the biggest type of workplace accident. You can help reduce this to ‘as low as reasonably possible’ by installing compliant stairs in your voids early and quickly.

Simple to install and easy to clean.

The Rapid Rise Firestairs prefabricated modular system means you don’t need to rely on a multitude of scarce, expensive labour during the install. This improved resource efficiency will help keep you on schedule. Our durable metal finish is easily cleaned post construction.

No formwork.

No formwork, propping, bearers every few risers and curing time. Just simple and rapid site installation.

Compliant to all Australian standards.

Offsite prefabrication combined with simple modular installation means we meet all fire stairs Australian standards out-of-the box.

Design out waste.

Early design compliance, maximum production efficiency and limited on-site work allows you to reduce contingencies and maximise raw material usage.

Reduce site complexity.

Whether it’s less trades, less trucks, less access equipment or less rework, Rapid Rise Firestairs has the answers.

Pre-fabrication for a higher quality build.

Prefabrication eliminates slippage concerns, allows for accelerated project timelines, increases cost savings and lowers your defect punch list. And that means you get an overall higher quality of build.

Reduce errors and rework.

Fully compliant design, digital integration and pre-fabrication gives you project certainty.

Environmentally friendly.

Rapid Rise Firestairs are an aluminium fabricated solution that are green star compliant. Because they can be removed and recycled at the end of their life cycle Rapid Rise offers a greater environmental benefit than concrete or mixed material solutions.

Once your project is complete, you will have functional and fit-for-purpose fire stairs – including landings, nosing and handrails – that are fully compliant to all Australian standards.

Benefits of Rapid Rise Firestairs versus traditional steel fire stairs

Traditional steel fire stairs can add more problems than solutions to your build.

They must be fully designed into the plan prior to building.
Installation is messy and complicated with concrete pours into steel forms under time pressure.
Defects are common. And the many subcontractors working on a single project means that final responsibility is often shrugged off.
Accessing the live deck is difficult and unsafe.
