FP McCann has vast experience in delivering bespoke precast stair core solutions based on two design options, stability cores and freestanding cores. The key difference being that stability cores provide lateral stability to the whole surrounding structure.
We offer a full design and installation service throughout the UK. We work closely with your design team at an early stage to develop the optimum solution to meet your needs. As a result, minimum temporary works are required on-site.
L and T shaped walls form our precast concrete stair cores. If the core dimensions suit, precast box units can also be adopted. Inside the stair core FP McCann provide precast stairs and landings with cast in lifting points making installation efficient and safe.
The wall thickness will depend on the type of stair core you choose (ie. stability or freestanding), fire rating and number of storeys. However, with FP McCann huge production and mould capacity we have a solution for all scenarios.
We manufacture all the precast components using self-compacting concrete which results in a high quality finish.
