Metal stairs

Metal stairs are suitable in either interior or exterior contexts.
Metal stairs can effectively sustain a surprising range of textures, from softly brushed steel to a gleaming polished sheen to a painted surface. The malleable nature of the material makes it useful not only as a structural element, but as a prominent visual feature. Adaptable to temperature fluctuations, metal stairs can function either indoors or out.

As demonstrated in a Brisbane residential project, Arden’s metal stair design can encompass both interior and exterior settings in the same installation. Metal stairs are fungible to the demands of their environment. Arden has also utilized metal in several other staircase projects to increase structural support.

Design elements suiting metal stairs

A recurrent theme in modern design is to let the structure speak for itself, and X1 staircase stringer design is an example of how effective this can be in creating visual appeal
alt text T1 - Feature truss staircase
Eliminating the traditional distinctions between stringer, handrail and stanchion, the T1 utilises a truss design for all three roles
alt text W4 - Winged steel blades and glass
The W4 stanchions are an implementation of a toughened glass balustrade solution incorporating the PF10/PF12 Arden system patch fittings on horizontal outriggers
alt text Z1 - Zigzag plate steel stringer
At Arden, we believe that the zigzag steel stringer design is the basis for some of the strongest architectural statements that can be made with a feature staircase
