FOLDED STAIRS

Staircase construction & design

Folded stairs impress with their characteristic design: as the name suggests, the construction consists of folded steps and risers and, as a consequence, the stairs receive their distinctive look. This type of staircase structure also benefits from steel as a favourable material offering significant advantages for filigree constructions.

FOLDED STAIRS FOR AMBITIOUS DESIGN SOLUTIONS

According to static requirements the supporting structure of folded stairs can be made of a steel sheet showing a thickness of just 5-8 mm. The final coating can also consist of an equally filigree wooden cover. The bottom view of the folded stairs can be realized in different ways:

  • usually the bottom view of the folded steel construction is not cladded but lacquered to obtain an harmonious contrast to the upper wooden cover. The classical solution however is metallic grey or white; in any case the trend is towards light colours.  
  • The bottom side of folded stairs can also be cladded with the same filigree wooden cover which is used for the upper side.
  • The ultimate trend however are folded stairs constructed with balustrade steel stringers and a closed and smooth underside cladding. The folded construction is only visible at the upper side of the staircase.
