Spiral Secures New Project

Spiral have been appointed for a new commercial project to create a feature staircase in the heart of London. This multi flight stair will be constructed in mostly stainless steel and will be providing access between floors in one of London’s most iconic buildings. Working closely with the architect and the design team we are currently under-going design meetings to insure the staircase is both impressive and practical.

Spiral's First 3D Printed Staircase!

Spiral Staircase Systems are proud to announce their first 3D Printed Staircase!

The stair was printed at 1:40 on a ZPrinter 350 using a powder based material. The ZPrinter is a favourite amongst architects due to its fast print speed and relatively low material cost. The surrounding building was laser cut from MDF.

The 3D print can help us and the client better visualise the design of the stair. While renders provide a valuable insight into how a stair will look they do not provide an accurate sense of scale, which is one of the reasons why we see the technology as an important investment for the future.

As well as being 3D Printed, some preliminary renders have been produced for the project which is located in a central London office. The stair itself consists of polished concrete cladded treads and stringers, with glass balustrading and a stainless steel handrail.
