KOMBI Stair and Platform Systems



Flinders Street Station, constructed in the early 1900’s, is an iconic presence in Melbourne. The refurbishment of this heritage listed building in 2018 included painting the exterior, rejuvenation of platforms and subways, and also incorporated upgrades of height access within the clock tower.

Installation through and within confined areas and roof cavities necessitated a modular, adaptable system that could be fitted around the many obstacles. As a portion of the work was to be carried out via abseil rope lines, lightweight components that could be constructed without the need for welding or specialist tools were required.



KOMBI flat packed Platform Systems could be fed through small access hatches and assembled inside the roof space.

The fully adjustable, spanning capability of KOMBI Platforms was crucial to span between roof trusses as there were limited structural supports within the roof. KOMBI’s ability to be adjusted “on the fly” was vital to ensure the ease of install and to provide a perfect fit.
