The 3 Benefits of Custom Designed Stairs

Posted by Daniel Couturier on Mon, Jul 29, 2013

Redesigning or building a unique office, commercial building, or other space can be greatly facilitated if you instruct your space planners, architects and builders to consider custom elements as part of the mix.


Unusual space? Narrow space? Need to follow a theme?   Having custom stairs as part of your plan can solve these problems. Custom built stairs can fit nearly any space limitation; curves, landings, a mezzanine can all add to the architectural uniqueness of your space, as would constructing a staircase that thematically fits into your office decor, or is designed and built to be a reflection of your product or service. Spiral staircases can be engineered to fit into very small places, or present a dramatically sweeping entrance.  Don't think you have adequate space inside?  Architecturally pleasing staircases have been designed and built on the exteriors of many buildings. Designs can be cut, etched or screened at strategic points on a staircase, to reinforce a company's image or message.  Custom metalwork as accents or office aesthetics is another service available from companies that construct custom staircases.

A design/build firm specializing in custom stairs can create a safe but aesthetically pleasing flow between floors of your office. The finish of the stairs, risers, railings is only limited by your imagination, nearly any material can be used, exotic metals, composites, or premium hardwoods. Glass railings are a nice finishing touch for professional offices. Within a factory, plant or warehouse, you might opt for a more industrial design, heavier materials, for years of durability and safety.

Lifetime of Service

These types of products are usually designed, engineered and manufactured off-site to exacting specifications, the custom built staircase has many advantages over stairways built on a site.  Measurements and fit are more exact, materials will fit together precisely, and the professional installation will be completed quickly and safely. As the design files are retained at the firm, should there ever need to be maintenance or repair work, or a replacement part, it will be installed and have the same look and feel as the custom staircase did on day one.

A design / build firm specializing in custom built staircases can offer you creative and innovative design options; superior craftsmanship; quality materials, made to order the way you specify.  Whether your interest is in a conventional rise, or lengthy extended stairways, spiral staircases, stairs/landings/mezzanine combinations, your needs and desires can be satisfied.
