Straight metal staircases

A straight staircase is the most commonly used type of staircase. It consists of a series of horizontal treads connected by vertical risers. Straight staircases are simple and functional, offering direct access between two levels without curves or bends. Metal straight staircases are linear staircases with no curves or spirals.

This staircase has a stringer on one side. Three corner pieces were placed to support the three components that make up each step.
Its shapes are refined and robust yet simple, fitting in beautifully with the lovely old building. Our gaze is drawn to the feature that highlights all the variations in light, making the black waxed patina gleam. This finish was chosen to underline the project’s originality.

Straight staircases Chavagne
Bespoke metal staircase and banister

Staircase with a pothook stringer. The second stringer is encased in the wall.
This staircase’s distinctive feature is that no two steps are alike. Indeed, we were required to adapt to certain technical constraints on-site: on the floor we had to begin the staircase according to the heater, then a horizontal beam threatened to compromise the way up.
The protective banister and changes in rhythm – initially imposed by the actual structure of the staircase – were voluntarily referred to again by the use of plates. Their positioning, that could first be thought of as chaotic, gives the feature its aesthetic touch.

Wrought iron restoration and creation project

A combined restoration and creation project, aiming to transform this exceptional place into luxury apartments. As such, the iron-worked banisters were brought up to standard and restored. All of the railings also required a certain amount of restoration work. Regarding the creative part of the project, the building was enriched with a new circular glass structure.

Different styles of straight staircases

Modern wrought-iron straight staircase

A modern wrought-iron straight staircase is a contemporary version of a traditional straight staircase, made from durable and elegant wrought iron. This type of staircase is often designed to suit modern, minimalist interiors, while retaining the artistic aesthetic and appeal of wrought iron. Modern wrought-iron straight staircases are characterized by clean lines and simple geometric shapes. They generally avoid overly elaborate ornamentation and motifs to achieve a clean, contemporary look.

The wrought iron used in modern staircases is usually combined with other materials to create a contrast of textures and colors, adding a touch of modernity. Wrought-iron handrails and railings are an essential element of the staircase. They can be designed with geometric patterns or straight lines to complement the staircase’s modern aesthetic. From an aesthetic point of view, some modern staircases incorporate glass elements or open treads to let light through, creating a brighter, more spacious atmosphere. In addition to this aesthetic aspect, modern wrought-iron straight staircases are designed to offer optimum functionality, with particular attention paid to ergonomics and safety.

Industrial metal straight staircase

A straight industrial metal staircase is a type of staircase characterized by a sturdy, minimalist and functional design. These staircases are often used in industrial environments, lofts, renovated warehouses and contemporary spaces for their modern look and durability.

Industrial straight staircases are mainly made of metal, usually steel, which is renowned for its strength and resistance. Steel is a versatile material that enables us to create solid structures while maintaining an industrial aesthetic. The industrial aesthetic is characterized by straight lines, sharp angles and a minimalist appearance. Industrial metal straight staircases often follow these design principles, with a simple, functional appearance. Industrial metal staircases can be left unfinished with a black or gray steel finish, giving an authentically industrial appearance. They can also be painted in customized colors to blend harmoniously with the overall aesthetic of the space.

These staircases offer not only a distinctive industrial aesthetic, but also great stability and long-term durability, making them suitable for high-traffic spaces and demanding environments. As with any construction or renovation project, it’s advisable to call on qualified professionals to design and install an industrial metal straight staircase to ensure safety and compliance with current standards.

Contemporary wrought-iron straight staircase

A contemporary wrought-iron straight staircase is an elegant fusion of classic wrought-iron styling and modern design trends. Unlike traditional wrought-iron staircases, which feature more elaborate patterns and ornamentation, contemporary straight staircases emphasize clean lines, simple shapes and a balanced aesthetic to complement contemporary interiors.

Contemporary wrought-iron straight staircases feature clean lines and simple geometric shapes. Ornamentation is often kept to a minimum, favoring a more modern, minimalist appearance. Contemporary wrought-iron straight staircases can be finished in a variety of colors and finishes to suit the style of the interior. Classic black or white finishes are common, but customized finishes are also possible to match the room’s color palette. Wrought-iron handrails and balustrades can be creatively designed to add an artistic touch to the staircase while ensuring safety. Modern geometric patterns or original designs can be incorporated into the railing for a contemporary effect.
