The Palace floating staircases are adaptable for many environments and are becoming an increasingly popular design.
The secret to this staircase’s success is in the hidden metalwork within the wall. The first fix involved mechanically fixing a structural steel stringer to the wall with protruding, welded cantilever channels. The stringer was then completely hidden by the wall finish for decoration. The steel cantilever channels provided access to the first floor to complete the same process for the second staircase. On completion, formed solid American white oak timber box treads were sleeved over the channels, which matched the chosen timber flooring throughout the property.
Throughout the penthouse apartment, 15mm low iron, toughened glass balustrade panels were installed as the staircase balustrade and around the first and second floor openings. To finish, satin polished, stainless steel handrail was installed as a top rail to the glass balustrade and wall fixed for the opposing handrail running up the staircase.
