The modular system includes braced frames which can be bolted to the floor, 1220-millimetre square deck sections, and stairways with elevations up to 2.4 metres.

To maximise personnel security, upper grab rails and mid-height rails are bolted to stairway stringers and deck perimeters. Auto-closing hinged safety gates and anti-slip grating have also been included on treads and decks.
