DriftReady Stairs

July 16, 2020

Construction Specialties have engineered DriftReady Stairs, a safe solution for occupants’ and first responders’ egress and ingress during and after a seismic event. Patent-pending technology keeps stairs stable at rest, yet flexible when a building moves. The stairs have a positive connection system that prevents the stairs from locking up in rotation or transverse movements. The stairs move with the building, so instead of acting like a brace and transferring damaging forces back to the building, the system flexes and accommodates the movement without impacting the stairs or its surrounding components.
