The Grove Group is an Australian owned and operated company that specialises in the manufacture, installation and hire of relocatable buildings for many industry sectors. Their key focus is on providing sustainable, modular, long lasting assets for their clients.

When they secured the contract to supply site buildings for the Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project they were required to construct several site sheds, a number of which were on a raised gantry.

Access to the second level by traditional wooden stairs or scaffolding did not provide the safety, durability and strength that was needed, and steel fabricated stairways would have been difficult and expensive to fabricate and install, given the inconsistent ground levels and surfaces.



Having worked previously on some other projects with Grove Group, the company approached SAYFA for their assistance. Designs for the large exterior KOMBI Stairways were drawn and once approved, fabrication began in our manufacturing facility.

The components were delivered to site where our installer, Prosafe, began assembly. As work progressed it soon became obvious that due to a change in height there was a requirement for the stairs to be raised by 600mm.

If using traditional steel stairs, this would have necessitated a complete system re-build. KOMBI's unique T-Bolt technology proved its worth, allowing on-site adjustments in situ and ensuring no additional fabrication was required which would have caused significant time delays and costs.



KOMBI Australian Made Stair and Platform Systems logoAn Australian manufactured product, KOMBI Systems are constructed of lightweight aluminium and are designed to Australian and New Zealand Standards AS 1657 and AS/NZS 1170.

KOMBI modular aluminium access stair and platform systems equals flexibility. Many times inaccurate pre-measuring or last minute changes to existing structures are undertaken and are not discovered until systems are being installed. These factors can significantly affect an installation and add time and unexpected costs into the project.

By using the patented KOMBI T-Bolt, KOMBI aluminium modular stairs can be adjusted to suit the required stair angle whilst allowing each individual tread to be leveled and spaced accordingly so that in the event that there are inconsistencies with measurements and actual on-site dimensions there will be no major delays in delivering your access systems.
