There is a new material for staircases that homeowners are loving. With its modern appeal and virtually endless options for custom design, homeowners are finding stainless steel to be their preferred material for their beautiful and functional staircases.
If you are thinking that steel is a cold material with a limited design appeal, you may find yourself very surprised. With the correct detailing and all of the style options on the market today, the possibilities are nearly endless.
Stainless steel offers staircases durability beyond compare. The compound of steel and chromium is exceptionally strong and will not only stand the test of time, but will resist dents, damages, and blemishes. Unlike traditional steel, stainless is very resistant to rust, keeping your stairs blemish free.
The structural properties of steel create a very slim and elegant design. Considered a more modern look, steel will make any older home come alive again and will instantly bring outdated stairs into this century. If your home has a modern design, stainless steel is the perfect accent to tie your home décor together.
Steel also happens to be great for the environment. It is very long lasting and is recyclable. So, if you are worrying about your carbon footprint, you can relax. Steel is an excellent choice.
Steel staircases are one of the most economical options on the market. Far from being the most expensive material, steel offers exceptional durability that can last for decades. There is nothing stronger than a steel staircase. Nearly impossible to bend and break, stainless steel staircases can take a lot of abuse. Because of their durability, maintenance is minimal, so you won’t spend a great deal of time and a fortune on upkeep. Being a waterproof material, maintaining the steels shimmering quality is relatively easy and requires little work other than basic cleansing that won't damage the products integrity.
There are three general kinds of stairways that StairPartsUSA.com can create for you using the finest quality metals and our unparalleled craftsmanship. One of our popular options is stainless steel cable railing, which replaces the solid balusters and newels common in wooden or other kinds of traditional stairways with a series of vertical metal ropes. Because of the strength of the material, the stainless steel handrails don't need the support that spindles on wooden stairways require, giving you the option of choosing this more decorative design in their favor. StarPartsUSA.com can craft a taut, evenly spaced series of cables that bisect the vertical stainless steel balusters used to support the handrail.
Another option is a stainless steel glass railing. This design replaces the newels and spindles of wooden handrails with plates of frosted glass that create an effervescent wall leading up your stairway. Because of the lightweight but strong nature of the steel, it is easy to create this adventurous and unique design that is sure to impress.
A stainless steel round bar railing is a great option for those interested in stainless steel. With a similar look to the one accomplished using wire railing, horizontal poles spaced evenly going up the handrail provide a look that more clearly anchors the aesthetic impact of the railing.
StairPartsUSA.com can even help you craft a stairway that is a compromise between traditional designs and stainless steel options. Woodinox implants can mask the steel tubing and give the stairway a warmer look than the one achieved on metallic surfaces. Using quality crafted anchorage and beautifully polished parts, the hybrid look of a wood and stainless steel stairway offers modern design and a homey feel all at once.
