Canopies, doors, and windows are standard components of a detached house. For multi-storey houses, the interior stairs should not be forgotten in this enumeration. Modern alternatives to wooden stairs are steel stairs from MetallArt which the expert company builds in Baden-Württemberg. As stairs inside the house or flat are becoming more and more important, the design is already considered in the early planning phase. The location of the residential staircase has an influence on the construction method.
A straight running internal staircase can be a cantilever staircase, folding staircase, sawtooth staircase, or single-stringer staircase, for instance. The climbing direction of the stairs can be changed with a half-landing.
Depending on the layout of the staircase, the course can also be spiral (quarter or half spiral). In this case, the steps are “spiralled” in the corners of a rectangular floor plan to change the climbing direction; this means that tapered steps are constructed in the corners, the rest of the flight of stairs remains straight.
Round or curved interior stairs (spiral stairs) are usually executed as stringer stairs with two stringers. However, layouts as single-stringer or central-stringer stairs are also possible. The ground plan of a spiral staircase can be evenly or elliptically rounded.
Spiral stairs are an alternative to space-saver stairs, as this type of residential stairs does not take up much space. Newel stairs are mostly used as interior stairs for two-storey living rooms. The steps of a newel staircase are directly fitted to the central newel, which replaces the wellhole. For newel stairs, wooden steps combined with a white lacquered railing are currently in vogue.
In order to reduce the risk of tripping, it is recommended, especially for families with children, to equip stairs indoors with risers.
Numerous certificates provide evidence of the extensive knowledge of the MetallArt experts in staircase construction. Not least because of the smooth interaction between construction, production, and assembly, MetallArt will be a strong and powerful partner for you.
