KOMBI® 2 Stage Stair - Easy Assembly In Remote Areas




V-Line - Ballarat Line Upgrade, VIC



Coleman Rail



KOMBI Access Modular Aluminium Stair Systems



Commencing in 2017, the upgrade to the Ballarat line includes the duplication of 18 kilometres of track, new regional stations, signalling upgrades and track improvements. Coleman Rail required a system that could be easily transported and assembled on-site. The undulating terrain presented a unique set of challenges which would have been difficult, if not impossible, to overcome if installing traditional steel step and stair systems.



The SAYFA technical team attended site to assess the requirements and generated a custom design to allow access down the embankment. The location of the signalling tower, out in the fields where ground conditions were far from ideal, meant KOMBI was the perfect solution.

The KOMBI stair system was pre-assembled by SAYFA and transported by ute in modules. This removed the necessity to hire a crane to lift steel stairs into position, which would have created an additional set of issues given the soft and uneven surfaces at the location. Once delivered, the KOMBI system was bolted together on-site by Coleman Rail personnel.

The result - a very fast and effective install and a very happy client.
