Augmented Reality - 3D Staircase

Spiral Staircase Systems have this week been experimenting with Augmented reality.

The custom software uses a marker, in this case the company logo, to scale and augment a 3D staircase model using a tablet.

We are aiming to use this in the future to show potential clients how their staircase will look on site.

The good thing about this is you can either rotate the staircase or physically walk around the logo and see a full 360 degree view of the stair. We would like to add a control to change textures so clients can see how different materials and finishes would look in situ.

For this example we have used the staircase featured here in one of our previous posts.

b2ap3_thumbnail_20130927_152014_20141009-143135_1.jpg

Models can be viewed on laptops, smartphones and computers with a webcam.

The Apprentice 2013

Taking a supporting role in the BBC's 2013 series of The Apprentice is Spiral Staircase Systems sleek G-Fin spiral stair. A fleeting glimpse of the glass staircase can be viewed 3 minutes in on the latest episode:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01sfh3g/The_Apprentice_Series_9_Beer/

The staircase was one of two stairs installed in the Grade II listed building which overlooks London's largest public square, Lincoln's Inn Field. The staircases provided a stunning addition to the £9 million property.

The G-Fin system is a versatile design that can be utilised for spiral, helical and straight staircase layouts. The design uses toughened glass risers as a support system, holding both treads and balustrade to produce an almost transparent structure.

SS 773 - Pentowan House

Here is an eye-catching example of a spiral staircase which utilises the G-Fin glass tread support system. To comply with Building Regulations, the 1830mm diameter stair required a rest landing due to the high 20 rise floor to floor height. The clients also specified a glass safety gate to be added at the top of the stair. This stair was installed as the main access between levels in a spacious Cornish holiday home.

SS 855 - Clanricarde Gardens

Featured this week is a recently completed project installed in a modernised London apartment. Spiral Staircase Systems G-Fin tread system was chosen to maximise the amount of light in the large living room area. In order to conserve space, the staircase was designed to slice through the wall as it rises to the upper level.

The client was thrilled with the quality of the final product and the service provided, which was underlined by the main contractor who added:

"It is very rarely in my experience that something in real life looks as good as a photograph, which often hides nasty imperfections. This cannot in anyway be said about your superb staircase."
