  • Strength. Steel can outlast most materials and handle the heavy loads required in commercial applications. When it comes to strength in construction, nothing can beat steel.
     
  • Customization. When stairs must be custom designed for an existing building or for function, an experienced steel fabrication contractor can build stairs from steel to meet any need. From wide steps to small spiral staircases, steel can be formed into whatever shape or size that is needed.
     
  • Durability. One of the main considerations in any commercial construction project is ensuring durability. Steel can last for decades, making it an excellent investment for staircases and other structures.
     
  • Maintenance. Steel is easy to maintain, with very little needing to be done in order to keep it functioning and looking great for years. With high resistance in all types of weather and temperatures, it needs little more than a hose or mop to keep clean.
     
  • Installation. Steel staircases can be quickly installed by a professional contractor. From customized stairs to turnkey cases, high quality steel staircases fabricators can have the job done to keep construction projects on schedule.

Adding Metal Stairs To Your Next Project

Posted in Metal Stairs

Whether you’re in the process of building a two story commercial property or a tree house for the kids, part of the design will revolve around the types of stairs you want to use. While wood and cement are popular materials for stairs, it can be more difficult to create unique designs with these materials. Custom fabricated metal stairs can be made to fit in with almost any design, and have many other benefits as well. 

Benefits Of Metal Stairs

Design flexibility is one of the biggest benefits of using metal versus other materials when adding a staircase to a building project. Metal can easily be fabricated into a spiral staircase, a drop down ladder for a tree house or even into a three-story staircase which needs to fit in a small space. Some other benefits of using metal as your staircase material includes: 

  • Longevity. Metal will last for decades, and will not rot or be vulnerable to termites like wood.
     
  • Cleaning. Metal can be easily cleaned and does not harbor mold and mildew the way other materials can.
     
  • Versatile. Stairs made of metal can be used indoors or out, and can be made in a variety of sizes, shapes and designs. They are easy to paint; specific designs or images can also be added to make them unique.
     
  • Turn-key. Metal staircases can be made to order from a quality metal fabricator, arriving ready to be attached to the project. 

For many projects, a metal staircase may be the perfect solution, especially when you need a material which can be customized, is built to last and is easy to maintain.
