Commercial Spiral Staircase – Wickham, Hampshire.

Commercial Spiral Staircase – Wickham, Hampshire

The majority of our customers are ‘end-user’ domestic clients involved with self builds or refurbishments, but we do supply a number of larger spiral staircases suitable for commercial use.  These are often for schools,  shops, offices and restaurants.  Like most fixtures within a commercial setting there are some stringent regulations to adhere with and spirals are no different.  These rules relate to the clear tread width, inner – centre and outer going measurement, riser height, and the location and thickness of the handrail.  They can get fairly complex so give us a call on 01794 522444 or email .

This particular flight was supplied as a semi commercial spiral staircase with a 800mm clear tread width.  It was supplied as part of a stunning fitout of an old barn into a number of self contained office units. The spiral staircase was constructed with solid oak treads on a steel tray, an external steel stringer and horizontal steel bars forming the balustrade.  We supplied a large platform at the top of the spiral which tied into the steel beams and it was topped with the same flooring material as the upper floor. As with all commercial spiral staircases a centre column handrail was included, snaking around the centre column.

This commercial spiral staircase was supplied in a primed finish, ready for on site painting.  Whilst we often powder-coat the product, a primed structure is popular as it removes the significance of damage to the paintwork during fitting.

Our client was extremely happy with the end result and this commercial spiral staircase can be viewed by appointment.

External Spiral Staircase

External Spiral Staircase – New Office Development – Enfield.

Ordered by a large national construction firm, a double flight commercial spiral staircase was supplied to a new office development in Enfield. This spiral fire escape was constructed with a 900mm clear tread width to meet the regulations and included a wheelchair refuge area which is commonly required on a commercial spiral staircase acting as a fire escape. It provides a clear 1.2m square area outside which is clear of the door to stair thoroughfare.
This external spiral staircase also came complete with a canopy which sat neatly on top of the extended centre column which provided shelter for users.
Given the height and weight of the product, a crane and genie was required to get the upper platform and canopy in place – as the photos demonstrate.
At Complete Stair Systems we tend to focus on our stunning bespoke internal spiral staircases but never forget – we do offer a ‘complete’ range. Whilst not designed to be an aesthetical master piece our external spiral staircases are an extremely popular and practical solution.
Each model is a bespoke creation ensuring the entry and exit point suit the layout of the property, the platform is suitable for the application and the clear tread width meets the building regulation requirements. Full drawings are prepared of each project which are submitted for discussion for each job.
We offer this type of bespoke system for both commercial and domestic clients. What is extremely popular presently in domestic settings is enlarging the platform of the spiral staircase to create a balcony, allowing our clients to sit out, enjoy a glass of wine and soak up the surroundings.

Spiral Staircase Balham

Last year we supplied six spiral staircases to a developer who was constructing a row of new build properties in Balham, London.

Four of these spiral flights were for external use to provide access to the garden from the basement, and two were internal.

One of the internal flights is featured here –  a 1500mm diameter model 71 spiral with solid oak treads and stainless steel spindles.  This is a bespoke model which is made specifically for the floor to floor height required.  The goings (depth of each step) and position and shape of the top platform is designed for the property in question to ensure the entry and exit point of the spiral staircase tallies up with the flow of the building.   This is critical with spiral staircases and is addressed and studied with every project.  All measurements on this project were taken by Complete Stair Systems.

Please have a look at other Model 71 spiral staircase projects below.  The model remains one of our most popular spirals and being bespoke, can be supplied in a variety of different balustrade types and timber options.
