Staircase & Ramp Handrails
We believe that architectural steel staircases should be a striking feature. The design of a stairway is primarily governed by the intended purpose, the anticipated frequency and the volume of usage.
A well-made, beautifully constructed staircase can be an amazing addition to any home or commercial infrastructure. Choosing the right kind of stairs requires consideration of both design and functionality. While there are many aspects to consider when choosing the right staircase for you, nothing is more important than choosing the most appropriate materials. Steel has many benefits that cover concerns regarding both design and functionality equally; it is truly the most versatile material you can build with. Let’s take a look at some the key perks of building a staircase with steel.
- Strength and Reliability
- Saving Money with Steel
- A New Outlook
- Thinking About The Environment
- A Modern Aesthetic
Steps are comprised of two sections, the tread and the riser. The tread is the horizontal part of the step that the foot is placed on. The riser is the vertical portions between each treat. Often in steel staircases, the riser of left out, giving the flight an “open stair” look.
The starting step is a first step that may have one or two open sides and are often larger than the rest of the steps.
Stringers are the structural element that supports the tread and risers. There are usually two – one on either side of the stairs.
