Architectural staircases are functional solutions that can help to connect floors of different levels in an elegant way. As an EN 1090 company, specialising in the manufacturing and design of complex steel work, we are in a great position to provide superior quality and well-designed architectural staircases.
Architectural staircases are custom-designed and fabricated staircases that are used in the construction of buildings, bridges, and other structures. These staircases are typically made of metal, such as steel, aluminum, or stainless steel, but can also be made of other materials like wood, glass, or concrete. Architectural staircases are designed to meet specific functional and aesthetic requirements, and can be designed to complement the overall design of a building or structure. They can be straight, spiral, or curved, and can include features such as handrails, balusters, and decorative elements. Architectural staircases are often created using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software, which allows for precise fabrication and accurate installation. The fabrication of architectural staircases often requires skilled craftsmen, and the use of specialized tools and equipment such as welding, cutting, and shaping machines.
In addition to the traditional metal staircases, there are also architectural staircases made of glass, wood, and concrete. These staircases can be used for both functional and aesthetic purposes, and can be designed to complement the overall design of a building or structure.
Better by Design
At Wrightfield our philosophy is “better by design”, and we recognise that it is the detail and finishing touches that can make the greatest difference to the success of any project a customer may have. This is true whether we are manufacturing architectural staircases, metal balustrades or any other solution.
This dedication to detail and our experienced design team, who use the latest 3D modelling software, enables us to create a staircase sculpted for functionality as well as aesthetics. We work and coordinate directly with the architects and engineers on the project to make sure that the best design is achievable and practical.
All of our architectural metalwork is individually crafted at our factory in Eye, Suffolk. The design is then fitted and installed by our highly skilled fabricators and erectors. This “in house” design and manufacturing capability, allows us to build architectural staircases to provide a visually engaging centrepiece for any building, whether it be commercial, residential or industrial.
Form and Function
Along with safety and functionality, one of the major factors when designing a staircase is aesthetics. As a diverse and multifaceted manufacturing company, we are also able to make a number of different kinds of balustrades for our staircases, these include metal balustrades made from stainless steel or extruded aluminium. This extruded aluminium allows us to create a frameless glass balustrade for a very modern look. Wrightfield will also advise on the relevant building regulations, relating to the installation of these balustrades, which are supplied both all over the United Kingdom and internationally.
