half-turn staircase / straight / metal frame / wooden steps
This type of cantilever staircase is adaptable for many environments. The secret to this staircase’s success is the hidden cantilever metalwork frame; CANAL has the experience of constructing metalwork frames in several ways depending upon the build and structure of the walls.
The first fix involved embedding a structural steel stringer into the wall with protruding, welded cantilever steel channels. The stringer was then sandwiched behind a supporting wall and plastered, completely hiding the stringer: Beautifully formed timber box treads were then sleeved over the channels. Finishing touches included stainless steel bosses affixing the glass balustrade panels to the treads and a complementary satin polished stainless steel slotted tubular handrail.
