If you need a staircase for a new build or commercial property, then why not consider investing in a metal staircase. Pleasing to the eye, durable and strong, they lend a sleek contemporary aesthetic and have many benefits over timber staircases. If you’re yet to be convinced, let’s dive in and take a closer look.
Save money with a quick and easy installation
The beauty of getting a metal staircase is that your local steel fabricator can manufacture the necessary components and ship them straight to your door as a DIY kit that is easy to install. This saves money when compared to a timber staircase that may require the skills of an experienced carpenter and need to be built on-site.
The main advantage of a metal staircase is that it is incredibly strong and built to last. Unlike timber, an outdoor metal staircase won’t be affected by the harsh Australian climate nor will it become infested with termites and need replacement. The metal will be treated so that it’s resistant to rust and corrosion. Furthermore, steel can support a greater weight than timber which allows you to be more creative with the style of your stairs.
No staining or varnishing
Unlike timber which requires regular staining and varnishing to protect it and keep it looking pristine, a metal staircase is good to go as is and can be used both indoors and outside without any hassle.
Create unique designs
A metal staircase offers more variety and flexibility in terms of design. For a commercial property, you may just want a basic straight staircase with or without handrails but for your home, you can really let your imagination run wild when you opt for a metal staircase. For instance, think of an ornate spiral staircase winding its way through the different levels of a modern city apartment. Or a large sweeping staircase in a palatial mansion paired with glass or timber to give a real wow factor. Whether you want straight industrial lines or soft elegance, steel should always be your go-to material of choice.
Metal staircase – long term investment
A metal staircase is a long term investment which makes it a cost-effective option when choosing a staircase for your home or office. Because of its strength and durability and low level of maintenance, there will no need to replace any components that are showing signs of wear or tear as with timber. Once installed, your metal staircase will retain its pristine sleek looks for many years to come.
Best of all steel is 100% recyclable so you’re also doing your bit for the environment.
