MetallArt Stairs

Linking the bottom to the top. With design and function.

Stairs are in use. Day and night. Up and down. However, MetallArt staircases are not only a functional element providing a connection between two storeys. MetallArt is the art of combining functionality with beautiful shapes. We manufacture steel stairs in accordance with the ideas and wishes of promoters and architects. We do not set any limits on the wishes of our customers. This is why each staircase is unique. Therefore, stairs by MetallArt are always an aesthetic experience despite their functionality. MetallArt stairs can be found in representative commercial buildings as well as in elegant private homes.

Stairs for modern living

ResidentialArt | Interior Stairs for residential buildings

Indoor stairs are the connecting element between different living levels. In addition to their functional purpose, they are increasingly used as a creative architectural element in state-of-the-art architecture. A modern indoor staircase is a calling card that reflects your individual style of living: from modern and futuristic to stylish and sophisticated through to extremely cosy. Newel stairs or single-stringer stairs for modern architecture.

Steel stairs offer an almost unlimited variety of design options due to their structural bearing capacity. Therefore, the design of steel stairs in modern architecture no longer focuses only on functional aspects; steel stairs have increasingly become creative elements of interior design: Spiral stairs with parapet-high steel stringers or steel stringer stairs with all-glass railings.

Glass railings by MetallArt

Glass railings are increasingly used as creative elements in modern architecture. They convey the impression of transparency and therefore contribute to the individual character of the architectural style. Glass railings with wooden or stainless steel handrails are appealing elements of design. MetallArt disposes of a custom-developed assembling technology approved by the German building authorities. It is used to cast the glass panes into the system profile free of constraint forces. Subsequently they are sealed with EPDM rubber profile oder elastic grouting. For the excact alignment there is no need anymore for the glass panes to be wedged by complex clamping. This also applies for steel stairs with glass railings. The construction of the stairs stringers however serves for the accomodation of the glass panes. In case of folded or cantilevered stairs the panes however are fixed directly at the tread steps.

Legal building regulations

Glass railings are also referred to as Fall Protection Glazing in the context of legal building regulations and must comply with these codes. For the approval procedure, the authorities distinguish between glass railings and all-glass railings and whether they are installed in private or public buildings.

Aesthetic shapes for an exclusive ambiance

To achieve a maximum of transparency the current architectural style for glass railings clearly emphasises on constructions going without supporting posts. Even the handrail is reduced to the essential by a filigree finish for the upper border of the glass panes. Glass railings by MetallArt are the perfect stage for the material glass.

Transparency and Lightness

The classification of glass railings is based on DIN 18008 (stipulations of the Technical Rules for the Use of Fall Protection Glazing - the former TRAV). The different categories depend on the type of balustrade structure and take the rail load into account according to DIN 18065.
