Understanding the Steel Staircase – New York Steel Fabrication

When laying out the plan of a building, it is always wise to keep in mind the need for robust steel staircases. Staircase architecture in itself is highly complex, so you want a material that is versatile and malleable enough to fit into any design and look great while at it. Now, you can’t bend timber or concrete, so steel staircases are a great bet for any construction project, regardless of the scale or tension placed upon the heavy foot/machinery traffic areas. Below is a glimpse into what our staircases consist of:

The Steps, Diamond Plate, Grating or Cement filled

Steel staircases ride on the strength of the steps, as this is where you expect the most traffic. The tread is the horizontal bit of your stairs while the riser is the part that holds a vertical lean. Because steel is one of the strongest metals around, fabricators tend to routinely leave the risers out of the equation.

Stair Stringers — Tube, channels of Flat

Your staircases are going to need support from either side, and the support system used here hangs on structures known as stringers.

Bannisters – Steel Picket, Pipe or Tubes

There are also known as handrails. Steel stairs are known to have one or two bannisters. There are those that do not have any, but we strongly recommend these structures as they make a building safer in general. Big stairs in particular require multiple rails located strategically along the way.

The steel handrail comes into a lot of use, so it will need to be anchored solidly into the core of the structure. Newels exist to perform these roles and extend right beyond the landing and into the floor.

Steel staircases can take any shape or form-there are no cut and dry methods- you can choose spiral, bifurcated, half-landing, quarter-landing or even winder varieties. All you have to do is reach out to us, and we will deliver your specifications to a fault.
