Cantilever ‘Floating’ Staircases
The cantilever staircase might sound elaborate, but in theory, it is just a flight of stairs running up an inside or outside wall although it is the engineering is hidden away that makes it look simple.
How do floating staircases work?
A cantilever ‘floating’ stair beam anchors at only one end allowing the protruding construction to overhang without any external bracing.
A Cantilever structure is mostly found within building structures, towers, bridges and aircraft. Canal incorporate the same principle into a floating staircase design but also creates a slender contemporary solution. Canal Architectural can install a wide range of bespoke staircases for both commercial and residential environments.
The simplistic design of the overhanging tread has allowed our designers to create some very striking but design concepts. The staircases can be designed to create more space in a property.
Canal can also apply the cantilever design to a wide range of staircase designs in any residential interior as well as commercial environments.
