Due to their structural bearing capacity steel stairs offer an almost unlimited variety of design options. Therefore, the design of steel stairs in modern architecture no longer concentrates only on functional aspects; steel stairs have increasingly become a creative element of interior design. Because of its high structural capacity steel complies with the stringent static requirements even if the cross sections used are relatively small. Moreover, steel has properties that allow it to be shaped by (cold) rolling. Since 2014 MetallArt steel stairs have been marked with the legally required CE label.
Using the relevant technical know-how and modern machinery steel stairs can be designed as curved or spiralled constructions.

Steel stairs - classic or modern style?
The current trends in architecture are definitely staircase designs featuring parapet-high steel stringers or a closed underside soffit lining. The material steel is absolutely predestined for these constructions as it offers extensive options to be machined. As the steel components can be finished with a coloured lacquering it is possible to influence the living ambiance.
