Birch Plywood Stair Cladding Installation

A significant expansion of Amazon’s state of the art headquarters enabled the e-commerce giant to continue growing operations in Dublin. The beautiful design of the office building uses a range of materials, combining timber and steel elements throughout the stairways connecting each level. Oakvale Floors were tasked with producing a lacquered birch wood finish on the impressive steel staircase, using a suitable fixing method to ensure a durable and hardwearing solution that could withstand a frequent footfall for years to come.



The Oakvale Floors installation team opted for Soudal’s professional parquet adhesive range, choosing to use our MS-30 Plus hybrid polymer adhesive. It provides an excellent all-round performance, combining high strength with a fast curing time. MS-30 Plus is ideal for bonding porous and non-porous materials, making it the ideal choice for fixing the birch plywood treads and risers to the steel substructure of the staircase.

For our Amazon stair project we had to be sure the adhesive we chose would guarantee to provide the adhesion and performance required for a milled steel structure, in a heavy commercial environment. Having previously used Soudal’s MS-30 Plus, it proved to be the ideal product to bond the Prefinished Birch plywood to the staircases.

Wood and metal are both durable materials often combined within construction and interior design. The complimentary pairing of materials delivers an impressive focal point in this office development, with wooden elements bringing a sense of warmth to the steel structure.

The adhesive has excellent adhesion to most common substrates used in the construction industry, both porous and non-porous.
