Steel staircases offer a number of advantages to the designers of commercial buildings and fitouts. A key reason for choosing steel as the key material for a new staircase is that it is extremely strong, offers great structural integrity and has the innate ability to be broken down into small sections and reassembled anywhere. This in turn allows engineers to create unique and slim architectural designs. Steel staircases are also aesthetically pleasing and open the door for many different visual finishes. While every stair must have treads and risers, and these are generally plate steel for strength, some designers may choose to leave these steel plates exposed.
This is what we call steel treads. They may be paint finished or given a pad of rubber for compliance and a minimalist tread finish. Whether you are designing a stair for an office fitout, a warehouse or a retail store refurbishment, a steel staircase designed and installed by a professional team will transform the look and feel of your space in countless ways.
