As with many projects, design and budget need to balance. The client and architect had designed an open riser staircase which required an engineering expertise. The Canal team brought their experience to bring the project on budget as well as producing a high quality staircase.
A sample showing the connection between glass, timber and steel without any visible fixings was able to satisfy the client.
Canal finish the bespoke open riser stair structure with a powder coat finish with a 15mm low iron glass balustrade. In addition the American white oak handrails seamlessly match the timber treads.
Open risers are tricky to accommodate within building regulations, the solution was to create short steel risers by extending the mild-steel tread carriers. As a result the unobtrusive framework provides the strength to the structure.
Open riser staircase increase the natural light flow within any property enhancing the illusion of space. In addition, Canal can fabricate this style of staircase in a wide range of materials to create one off unique custom designs.
Throughout each process Canal will ensure to work closely with you and the architect to meet your exact design specifications and requirements.
