Types Of Steel Stairs

December 08, 2021

Steel stairs can be a great addition to any building. Steel staircases are being increasingly used by architects and interior designers around the globe. From offices and industries to penthouses and apartments, steel staircases can fit perfectly in a lot of settings. In addition, steel staircases add to the aesthetic value since many designs can be easily implemented. Steel is a great material for the construction of stairs due to its several qualities like:


  • Durability
  • Stability
  • Aesthetics
  • Flexibility
  • Low maintenance cost
  • Safe

Common types of steel stairs

Steel staircases are classified into different types depending on the designs and utility. In this blog, we take a look at some of the common types of steel staircases.


Straight stairs

In this type, as the name suggests, the fabricators assemble a rather straight flight of staircase made using steel. This is one of the most simple and widely used types of stairs. A straight steel staircase can have a single flight of stairs or two different flights connected by a common landing area. 


Spiral stairs

Spiral or round stairs are named so because of their shape. In this type, each tread is attached to a common column. Spiral stairs are ideal for compact spaces. This type of stairs is aesthetically pleasing and is suitable for indoor as well as outdoor settings.


Emergency ladder

Emergency ladders are mainly made using steel due to several benefits, like resistance to heat and larger weight-bearing capacity. Emergency ladders are used in fire escapes in residential and commercial buildings. It is imperative to use only superior quality steel for manufacturing emergency ladders to ensure a safe exit during unfortunate events.
