Flux, our take on a central spine staircase, is one of our most popular designs. Whether that’s because it creates the illusion of a floating staircase, or because the central spine itself is such an interesting piece of architectural steel work. Regardless to say, we wanted to highlight some of the key features of this design which really makes it different from other similar designs on the market.
The most defining element of this style is the central spine itself. This is fabricated entirely from scratch by laser cutting the side profile from sheet steel, avoiding the use of standard box section. This allows us to achieve a unique shape that has clean edges and is completely free of visible welds.
By creating our own steel section we have ultimate control over the design, allowing us to fabricate complex shapes with total accuracy. This is particularly helpful with staircases which require landings or winders as we can manipulate the dimensions with ease to allow for a seamless transition from one element into another.
