While we are best known for crane rentals in the Portland, ME area, American Aerial Services offers a wide range of other support and steel erection services. One of which we’re particularly proud is our specialization in Maine steel stair and railing installation. Whether you’re planning a residential building or an extensive commercial project, we provide a wide range of products (including standard and custom steel stringers, pan and tread stairs, steel guardrails and railings, and galvanized cable railings), each backed by the knowledge and experience gathered over our two decades serving our clients.
American Aerial Services offers a unique skill set, and as a result we're able to perform where our competition cannot or does not. One of these specialties is inside rigging projects, including elevator shafts in airports and commercial buildings, and complex structural steel installations. This skill can also be leveraged for complex cases like retrofits of existing structures, or reinforcement beams that brace and support those structures.
We find that the installation of steel stairs and rails works best when all stakeholders — including building owners, general contractors, and steel fabricators — keep their needs and expectations clear, and the lines of communication open. To that end, we’re involved from the beginning to ensure that every aspect of your project — planning, safety, and a precise installation — is thoroughly covered. Our goal, like yours, is to stay on deadline and on (or under) budget without compromising the quality of workmanship you require, and that we demand of ourselves.
Let’s take a closer look at the types of stair and rail installations we’ve performed for clients over the years.
Railings are complex because each installation must meet a number of needs. OSHA and insurance requirements are often paramount, but we know that our railings are often located in public-facing or customer-facing areas, so appearances matter as well. Our railing installations are complemented by other purpose-built solutions like ramps and pedestrian walkways, and a wide variety of cord and cable railings.
We specialize in pan and tread stairs, a style of stairs that set stone, concrete, or brick into a recessed area in the metal frame that’s commonly known as a pan. However, we also install stairs of other types, including spiral staircases or diamond tread stairs in order to address the full range of functional, cost, and esthetic concerns raised by your project. Each installation is customized to your specifications, while also meeting or exceeding any applicable building codes and regulatory requirements that apply.
While we take great pride in the services we provide and the work we do, the strength of American Aerial Services is in our people. Our team is comprised of AISC certified steel erectors as well as trained and drug-tested NCCCO-certified crane operators. Our founder Jim Read has shepherded our company to become a trusted name in crane rentals and steel erecting in the Northeast, and the first stop for many contractors and businesses in the Portland and Falmouth, ME areas.
