If you need a special spiral for outdoor use we offer a range of those too, in galvanized and powder coated finishes. Our most popular spiral staircase models are the Gamia Deluxe and the Phola Spiral Staircase, as in the UK people tend to prefer wooden handrails over plastic handrails. Both models have beech treads with various stain options, so are well worth a look if you want the best quality at the best price.
Versatile - Space saver staircases have also been used for a variety of other projects, such as garage conversions, mezzanine floors, basement and cellar conversions etc. (Subject to Building Control approval) so they can be very versatile wherever you need to save some space but still get safe access.
Modular stairs are generally more compact than conventional stairs, so you can squeeze them into tight corners and small spaces, a real bonus if you need to access an upper floor where space is tight. Modular stairs are designed to be height adjustable, and have flexible layouts to suit the available space. In straight, L shaped or U shaped formats, you have the option of over 50 different layouts, offering big cost savings on getting special staircases made to measure.

Spiral staircases are an attractive architectural feature. Due to their small footprint they are a practical choice when space is limited, or as an aesthetic preference for creating a striking interior or exterior feature. Both new and used spiral staircases for sale can be found on eBay.
To establish the size of the staircase, first, measure the ceiling opening, then subtract 10 cm. This will give you the correct diameter. Next measure the floor height. This is the finished floor to finished floor level, rather than up to the joist. New spiral staircases are manufactured in set widths, such as 1200 mm or 1400 mm. There is usually some adjustment in pitch and bannisters.
Building regulations will need to be adhered to for any staircase installation. You should check specific designs with your local building control department but a general guide is a minimum sphere of 100 mm and there must be no gaps greater than 99 mm anywhere on the staircase. The minimum width is 660 mm (26 inches), with each tread a minimum distance of 190 mm (7.5 inches) at 12 inches from the narrow edge.
A designer alternative are helical stairs. The main difference being that a spiral staircase has a central vertical spine, whereas helical, or curved, staircases do not and can follow any shape or direction desired.
For the most part, a spiral staircase is an easy, attractive alternative to access a floor level in your home while utilizing minimal space. But, spiral stairs do have a few minimal disadvantages. We feel it is our responsibility as a Senior Stair Manufacturer in the United States to make you aware of any potential issues you may (OR MAY NOT) encounter with the addition of a spiral stair in your home or project;
While none of the above (potential) disadvantages of a spiral stair are monumental, it is only fair to make people aware that they could encounter none , some, or all of the above while determining if a Spiral Staircase System is right for them.
Typically, spiral staircases are constructed using all wood, all metal, or made with a combination of these materials. Additionally, spiral staircases can incorporate glass or decorative iron or both. Check out our spiral stair gallery for a wide variety of examples of spiral staircases we have made at Great Lakes Stair.
