Top 3 Benefits of Choosing a Metal Staircase

A metal staircase is a popular choice among builders, architects, and designers. Metal elements such as railings may be combined with other materials, or entire staircases can be constructed of metal. There are several key reasons why metal is a great choice for residential and commercial stair projects. This week, we explore the benefits of metal staircases.

Metal Staircase Benefits

#1: Extreme Versatility

A metal staircase can be custom designed and constructed into a variety of shapes and sizes. Whether your style is simple, elegant, traditional, or modern, the design possibilities are endless.

Common metal staircase materials include stainless steel, aluminum, and wrought iron. Each of these metal options offers unique aesthetic and construction benefits, and our team works closely with each customer to determine the type of metal that is the best fit for the project.

Each of the metal choices can also be paired with other design materials to create unique looks. Metal is often combined with wood, glass, and/or cable rail for a stunning finish.

Two example projects below show a wide range of metal staircase style. An aluminum spiral stair is industrial and highly customized, featuring logo text on the rail panels, while a custom wrought iron railing system exudes abstract, modern elegance.

Benefit #2: Minimal Maintenance

In addition to design versatility, metal stairs are known for requiring very little maintenance. Unlike wood, metal stairs do not require sealant, varnish, or paint to maintain an outstanding appearance.

Benefit #3: Maximum Durability

Metal staircases require very little upkeep, and they are truly built to last. Highly functional and resistant to extreme temperature changes and humidity fluctuations, metal staircases are an ideal choice – either indoors or out.
