These products are custom sized to your specific application & priced accordingly. Pricing varies with height, angle, fit & finish of the product.

Options for bespoke heights & angles available with item-specific pricing.

Stairs cover heights between 1.2 meters and 3.4 meters with angles between 50 & 60 degrees.

safe & reliable

 

Safety & reliability are at the core of everything we create here at Bcompact.

Unlike the Ladder that has an optional fixed handrail, the Hybrid Stair comes standard with the Patent Pending Bi-folding handrail that ensures safety & conveniently compacts away when the stair is folded flat to the wall.  It also enables the opening & closing of the stair from either the ground floor or the upper landing.

The Hybrid Stair can also be fitted with a Patent Pending integrated sprung closing safety gate, ensuring the opening at the landing is never left open when the stair is stowed away.

The Hybrid Stair is unique in its design & is technically classified as a ladder under the Australian Standard 1657- 4.2.1. & NCC 3.9.1.2 regulations.

This product is built using these building code regulations to ensure that your safety is never compromised.

These products are Premium quality with hand made processing & finishes. We have over 15 years of research & development and have rigorously tested & checked every product before it leaves our door, to your home.

Proudly hand made in Australia to the highest standard, delivered worldwide.

materials

Nothing competes with the tensile strength, flexibility, weight, versatility & durability of Bamboo. 

Used for millennia in its natural forms and later in these man-made constructs, Bamboo is the oldest building material known to man and has a tensile strength greater than steel.

That’s why our Hybrid Ladders are made from specially constructed and sustainably sourced Bamboo composite ply.

There is no other organic material that can compete with Bamboo across all aspects.

sustainable & eco‑friendly

Sustainability is at the forefront of every design we bring to life. Our goal is to alter the current worldwide focus towards wood dependency & create a new, inexpensive, faster-growing, eco-friendly & sustainable alternative.

did you know…
“Bamboo grows on every continent, bar Antarctica!”

 

This is top of mind when we sit down in the studio to design a piece, even before any prototypes are made or materials used in the workshop. 

Whether it’s for production, packaging, wastage, product lifespan & everything in between, we are committed to creating beautiful & functional products that will endure the test of time & not damage the environment.

These Stairs are CNC cut with virtually no waste & what is leftover from the process is collected & repurposed for other creations.
