What is a spiral staircase?
Spiral staircases are a very popular and well-known style of staircase, suitable for both residential and commercial settings. This versatile design can be incorporated into any environment and look excellent.
However, not all curved staircases are spirals – helical staircases are often mistaken for a spiral staircase. Click here to read more about our helical staircases and its features.
What is the difference between spiral staircases and helical staircases?
Spiral staircases form a complete circle, and have a tighter radius than a helical staircase. They can be manufactured using a variety of materials including steel, timber and glass.
Another feature to look out for is the central column that spiral staircases have to support the treads. Other curved staircases do not have this feature, making it a good way to determine what a spiral staircase is.
How big is a spiral staircase?
Generally, spiral staircases are known for their efficiency when it comes to use of space. The tighter radius of the stair means they require less space than other styles, but also provide a very unique look compared to other styles.
In a domestic setting, they typically go up to around 2000mm in size. Larger examples can exceed 2000mm on commercial projects or where required. M-Tech Engineering offer a fully bespoke service, allowing you to specify your ideal staircase in any size you need.
How much do spiral staircases cost?
Due to the bespoke nature of M-Tech products, there are no definitive prices for any design. However, for example, spiral staircases are a cheaper option compared to that of a helical staircase.
