Long Product Lifecycle
Our aluminum stairs will never rust, so they are low maintenance and have a long life.
ADA & IBC Compliant
We manufacture exterior aluminum stairs and platforms that follow ADA Stair Code and IBC Stair Code.
Is your stair part of a means of egress exit?
We use a solid material that has raised ridges for slip resistance. How do we prevent water accumulation?
Quick & Easy Installation
Upside’s prefabricated metal stairs typically take about 1 hour to install.
Our team of engineers designs a layout drawing just for your project. Professional Engineer stamps available.
