Libraries more and more invite people to stay and relax. As they are places of public life, the architecture increasingly gains in importance. Due to the extensive media offer, which often extends over several floors, access elements are required that can cope with the high volume of visitors. Steel is ideal for a library staircase to guide the streams of visitors to the individual levels. Due to its malleability and load-bearing capacity, the material offers many possibilities for an individual design. Combined with wood, glass, stone or stainless steel, impressive interior spaces can be created and there are no limits to the wishes of the creators.
Stairs in schools are very often made of concrete to meet the fire protection requirements for public buildings. However, steel may also be used if the staircase is professionally clad or provided with a fire protection coating. In contrast to concrete, steel offers an almost inexhaustible variety of options due to its malleability. Check it out yourself!
