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.

Here at Complete Stair Systems we have a real passion for all things stair related.  

From outrageous designs to quirky sculptures, in our eyes each bespoke stair is a piece of art – whether we have produced it or not.

As a weekly feature we are going to prepare and publish a number of unusual and interesting staircase photos from around the world –  – starting with this beauty in China.  

Mountain Spiral Staircase 3

In an attempt to boost tourist numbers in Taihang, officials decided to add a 300ft large spiral staircase to the side of a mountain for direct access to the summit and to the stunning views upon assent.  Certainly not for the faint hearted ……….either to design the thing or to use it.  I gather there is a good few feet lateral movement when the wind blows strong – which is fairly frequent at this altitude!!

Apparently visitors are requested to sign a form before assent confirming they have no heart or lung health issues – and no-one over 60 is permitted.

A magnificent piece of engineering – I would love to have seen the fitting sequence.  Goodness – have a look at that centre column!
