Zig Zag Staircases

Zig zag stairs form modern pattern folded staircases using simple lines that perfectly complement any contemporary residential or commercial environment. The minimalist design of the zig zag staircases increases the sense of space whilst becoming a focal point within a room.

The process begins at Canal’s manufacturing facility in Nottingham to fabricate the zig zag staircase structure. The fabrication team fabricate the zig zag structure from mild steel and then meticulously folds the structure into position.

There are a variety of materials that Canal can incorporate into a zig zag staircase design. Timber treads alongside a glass balustrade provide a modern contemporary solution. In addition, you can also leave the mild steel exposed keeping the natural aesthetics of steels.

In addition, there are also a variety of finishes available to suit your specifications to complement your interior decor. To match the surroundings of your property, a site spray option is available in any colour of your choice.

An alternative option is a wax finish that enhances the natural beauty of steel and creates a modern industrial look. Folded staircases like these are a popular option for both domestic and commercial premises.

Zig zag stairs are a popular choice for those who like the appeal of contemporary staircases and folded staircase designs. Feel free to browse our past projects below where you can see how different styles of zig zag staircases can be incorporated into a property.

At Canal we are experienced in manufacturing contemporary staircases using a range of different materials. All of our zig zag staircases are manufactured at our headquarters within Canal Engineering in Nottingham.


“I chose Canal Engineering because of their ability to precision fabricate and install within a complex and awkward geometry. They were able to provide us with a finish that has a natural patina whilst also being hardwearing, develop mock ups to help us make the right choice of detail and complete the work within a reasonable budget.”
