To allow the installation of an LED handrail lighting system on site the MetallArt experts mounted a stylish cove at the outer stringer of the design stairs which constitutes at the same time the elegant handrail for the stairs. For this outstanding feature an horizontal flat steel section was welded on the upper side of the balustrade stringer and complemented by a vertical downward flat steel element.
Curved horizontal balustrade as frame for the ceiling
Its in particular the distinctive parapet-high steel balustrade due to which the design stairs get their homogenous appearance. The steel sheets show a thickness of 10-12 mm and are executed equivalent to the stairs’ stringers. Beside its function as railing is constitutes at the same time the ceiling frame and partly masks the slab edges and the floor structure. This element of the design stairs has a diameter of approx. 3,000 mm and was realised as full circle on the ground floor and as semicircle on the first floor.
MetallArt would like to thank the architects at the office skizzenROLLE in Kirchberg (CH) for the successful cooperation in this staircase project.
