The contemporary history of architecture shows that stairs, apart from their functionality, have always been constructed as outstanding elements of design. Due to its structural bearing capacity steel offers, like no other material, various options for the creation of innovative design stairs and it is an indispensible material when it comes to the latest trends in staircase architecture. Self-supporting spiral stairs with a closed underside soffit or parapet-high steel stringers give sculptural effects to design stairs and result in their outstanding appearance.

Design stairs for innovative architecture

Architects and interior designers are planning design stairs as creative elements between the individual floors - like a piece of furniture or a sculpture matching the interior style of the building. Apart of impressive staircase structures which dominate the room there are modest but elegant design stairs fitting in aesthetically in the buildings ambiance.


Design stairs with steel balustrades

By means of the latest manufacturing technologies and our long-standing experience the experts of MetallArt create and manufacture parapet-high steel balustrades for design stairs. The closed box-type stringers complete the design stairs and can be realised in straight or rounded shapes.


Design stairs featuring a structural supporting soffit lining

To achieve sculptural effects and a homogenous appearance design stairs are often completed with a smooth underside cladding. MetallArt developed an own interface between 3D design and special FE structural programs (Finite Element) which includes the steel underside soffit in the structural calculation. This results in material savings and a significant improvement of the vibration behaviour of the design stairs.


Self-supporting design stairs

By means of an advanced and complex 3D software for pre-visualizations we can meet our customers' wishes ideas regarding innovative self-supporting design stairs. Beside the planning, production and assembly of design stairs MetallArt also supplies the verifiable structural analysis as well as the vibrational calculation. 


Design stairs with LED handrail ligthing

MetallArt developed an own LED lighting system for the handrails of design stairs setting exclusive highlights with indirect illumination. This feature also provides for power saving and economic light solutions. The light intensity of the recessed LED spots can be regulated by a dimmer and thus it adapts itsself to the individual requirements and conditions of the room. 


All-glass railings for design stairs

All-glass railings for design stairs captivate with maximum transparency and visual lightness. According to DIN 18008 MetallArt delivers demanding railing constructions for indoor and outdoor use. With a special technical approval and the abP - an own licence with general test certificates issued by the German building authorities - MetallArt corresponds to the architects and owners wishes for glass railings showing surpassing measurements. This applies for straight, curved and ascending glass railings and results in sophisticated constructions. The length and width of the single panes are allowed to considerably exceed the requirements regulated in DIN 18008.
