Work with Steelway

  • Clear access for boom truck (101” wide, even surface)
  • The width of the hole must be no more than 41” for poured walls and 41” for block walls
  • Hole excavated 8’ wide down the footer, back from the footer 3’ then graded up at a 45° angle
  • Hold back any foundation coating 12
  • If the wall is block, the last three cores on each side of the opening must be filled with concrete – not mortar
   
  • If you pour the slab prior to setting the stairs make sure there is no ‘over pour’ out the opening and no wood in the doorway
  • If you have a poured wall and you have the opportunity, pour 12
  • This leaves no cold joints and after the slab is poured, this becomes your first step.
  • The outside surface of the wall must be smooth and plumb.
