This type of staircase offers considerable design flexibility. They can be made in a variety of shapes, such as straight, spiral, quarter-turn or helix, depending on the needs and constraints of the space. Configurations can be adapted to suit specific dimensions and preferences.
How to install this staircase
Installing a contemporary metal staircase requires careful planning and the involvement of qualified professionals, including architects, engineers and metalworkers.
First of all, it’s essential to design the metal staircase according to the specific dimensions and requirements of the space. This involves determining the style of staircase, its shape (straight, spiral, quarter-turn, etc.), its location and the materials to be used. Call in a professional to help you design the staircase and obtain the appropriate plans.
Before installation, the space must be prepared by removing all obstacles and ensuring that the necessary measures have been taken to support the staircase. Elements such as walls, floors and ceilings must be checked for their stability and ability to support the staircase.
The metal staircase will be made to measure according to the agreed plans and specifications. This involves cutting, forming, welding and assembling the various metal parts to create the staircase structure. Treads, handrails and balustrades will also be fabricated at this stage.
Once the staircase has been manufactured, the main metal structure is installed. This involves securing the staircase to the floor and ceiling or wall, using appropriate fasteners to ensure stability and safety. Precise measurements and careful attention are required to align the staircase correctly.
Once the structure has been installed, the metal treads are attached to the structure. Railings, handrails and balustrades will also be installed at this stage to ensure safety when using the staircase.
Once the staircase has been installed, it’s time for finishing. This may include steps such as polishing, sanding, painting or applying protective coatings to improve the staircase’s appearance and durability. Final adjustments may also be necessary to ensure that the staircase is level and meets safety standards.
