Innovations in Curved Stairs

As property development across the UK increases, so does demand for high end architectural stairs and balustrade. CANAL Architectural demonstrate their expertise with this stunning feature staircase in a residential home in Cheltenham.

CANAL Architectural has recently completed the interior of a stunning home in Cheltenham, which included a large, helical staircase and first floor balustrade. With state of the art manufacturing facilities in Nottingham, CANAL started by fabricating the bespoke, curved metalwork by forming the initial shape of the staircase. The main structure was designed to be fully supported by only the base and the first floor landing creating a single sweeping stringer, which produced zero flex when in use.

On the inside of the stainless steel stringers, special sections where fabricated into the side to host LED lighting that was fully programmed with ambient changing colours and installed with sensors around the staircase to light up only when movement approaching the stair occurred.

Each glass tread was triple laminated with water jet cut fixing holes underneath to incorporate stainless steel support fixings. From above, these fixings were near on invisible due to a sand blasted detail for increased safety under foot as well as style. The helical, feature staircase was completed on-site with curved glass balustrade that carried onto the first floor to complement the modern look throughout the home.
