Advantages of Steel Stairs

August 25, 2017

Are you getting ready to invest in a new set of stairs for your facility? Have you ever wondered why steel stairs are a worthy investment? 

Below are the five major advantages of steel stairs.


The initial cost of buying steel is not expensive compared to other metals or raw materials. Some types of hardwood and even glass are more expensive than steel. Steel is a strong, durable material that in the long-term is less prone to damage and thus repair. Steel stairs also add to your structure’s market value.

2.Low Maintenance

With steel stairs, you won’t have to spend money to maintain quality. Steel can take heavy pressure and is thus less prone to damage, as mentioned above. Maintenance is not difficult or time-consuming.

3.Easy Customization

You can buy ready-made steel stairs or you can have them customized to suit certain specifications. For this, you will need to consult an experienced steel fabrication shop such as Scarboro Steel Works: we are a full service structural steel, stairs and railings fabricator with a focus on renovations, additions, reinforcement and removal of existing structural elements.


Many are unaware of the environmentally friendly aspects of steel: it can be taken back to fabrication shops for recycling. It can be processed and produced into new steel products. We encourage you to play your part in reducing the amount of steel in our landfills and help minimize pollution.

5.Safety and Security

Steel offers optimal support for your structure due to its strength and durability. If you are a business owner, the onus is on you to provide a safe environment for not only your customers but also employees. Using steel as a building material helps to decrease the likelihood of accidents and injuries, as mentioned above.
