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 hidden away that make it look simple.

A cantilever ‘floating’ stair beam anchors at only one end allowing the protruding construction to overhang without any external bracing.

A Cantilever structure is most 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.

Canal can also apply the cantilever design to a wide range of staircase designs in any residential interior as well as commercial environments.

  •  Straight
  • Quarter Turn
  • Half turn
  • Helical
  • Curved

The transformation from a standard stair into one that needs no support underneath or between the treads creates a vision of open space. In addition the seamless ‘floating’ appearance that is aesthetically pleasing and enhances the natural light flow within any environment.
