Modular Commercial Stairs

Upside’s APEX stairs are engineered to integrate with our ramps and canopies with seamless integration and make a great solution for modular buildings and loading docks.

Because the APEX System is modular, ramps, stairs and railings can be reused, added to, and reconfigured as your needs change.

How we design

Our internal engineering team designs ramp, step, and canopy systems. We collect important information like threshold height, compliance requirements, space constraints, and any existing obstacles, and we will design a layout that will fit within your footprint.

Worked out great.

Everything worked out great. Thanks to your team for taking care of the details.

Upside Innovations was a pleasure to work with from design to delivery.

Nick Bishop was responsive and quick to get a quote started, and Tish Carroll did an excellent job shepherding the job through the engineering design, fabrication, and shipping stages, expediting the process when the deadlines got tighter on my end. The product arrived early and was a pleasure to install – all of the hardware clearly marked and bagged, and the pallet strapped and wrapped securely. These stairs are being used for robotics research/testing and are working flawlessly. I would recommend Upside to anyone looking for professional crossover stairs for their project or building.

Fit perfect and was easily assembled.

The platform and stairs are now up and installed and are fantastic. It fit perfect and was easily assembled just as you said it would. Thank you for a wonderful product.

The steps are well built.

The steps are well built and sturdy enough to handle our needs safely but yet light enough for two men to move without the use of equipment.

Couldn’t be happier with the whole experience.

The quality was fantastic, and they showed up quickly. From the time they were pulled off the delivery truck, the stairs were assembled, stood up, and lag bolted into the floor in under 1 hour. We really couldn’t be happier with the whole experience we have had with Upside Innovations. Plus, the stairs are much sturdier than I had even hoped for. Below is a picture of the steps installed on the side of our gun range. Thanks again for the great job.

So easy to work with!

Upside was so easy to work with! From estimating, to product selection, and all the way to delivery, they were very responsive and easy to work with. When we need another set of stairs, we will be buying them from Upside Innovations.

Matt S.

Love the quality.

What a great product to work with. Love the quality and ease of assembly!

Denny R.

I am very impressed.

It went together well, I am very impressed that your fit and finish was as tight as it is. Thanks again to everyone involved in the project.
