Spiral Staircase Systems have recently been developing an integrated LED lighting system for helical, curved and straight handrails on staircases and balustrading. The HeLux system of illuminated handrails is the result.
The system incorporates a low voltage LED light unit and a bespoke flexible extrusion which fits inside our specially rebated stainless steel handrail. The HeLux system has now been successfully installed on two commercial projects with some very positive feedback from our clients and already have orders on another 2 projects.
As well as illuminating the underside of the handrail, the HeLux system also gives the handrail a pleasant warm feel.
Please contact us for more details.
Here are some before and after pictures displaying our expert on-site welding and polishing. This particular project features a mirror polished finish.
This stylish helical staircase provides access to an underground swimming pool area in a luxury London home. Finished in marine-grade stainless steel and toughened glass, it is part of Spiral's "G Finn" range.

Spiral Staircase Systems recently completed this stair for an office space jointly occupied by Aramco Overseas Company UK Ltd & Saudi Petroleum Overseas Ltd.
Located in the prestigious 10 Portman Square building this single flight elliptical stair features satin polished stainless steel stringers and handrails, low iron glass balustrading and marble treads.
It provides a central access between floors for staff and clients in Aramco's new London offices.
Spiral Staircase Systems are pleased to release finished images of the feature helical stair at Skype's London HQ in Waterhouse Square. Anomalously posted here back in 2012 the completed stair is a major focal point of the office.
Working closely with TP Bennett Spiral Staircase Systems designed, fabricated and installed this double flight staircase for ISG's fit out of the office building in Holborn. Read ISG's Article on the project here.
This Triple flight helical staircase is one of the many elegant features in this large north London home. Constructed in satin polished stainless steel with toughened glass balustrade, it slightly differs from the preliminary renders featured here on our blog back in February.
Spiral worked closely with Melissa Robinson from MW Architects to design the staircase to the exact specification that was required. These are the professional photos of the finished staircase.
For our second 3D print we have printed a triple flight dog-leg stair at 1:40 scale. Printed in ABS on a Fortus 3D printer, each flight took around 20 hours to print and features 1.5mm handrail and 1.2mm glass panels. The whole model is mounted on transparent acrylic and stands around 40cm tall, with laser etched human profiles to give a sense of scale.
This model was printed on its side using the Fortus 250mc printer which uses FDM technology, printing horizontally reduces build time and helps make the small features stronger. This model was more complicated than our first 3D print and took over 60 hours to build.
This is the CAD model of the stair that was sent to the 3D printer and laser cutter.
These are some of the photos of the finished model.
The DS Range is a classic Spiral Stairs design and has remained popular for over 40 years.
The core of the stair features an aluminium bracket system that can be customised to achieve a desired finish, allowing it to really blend in to the home or workspace area. The Balusters bring great rigidity to the structure, available in a wide range of designs and materials.
Lastly, choice of treads - (timber/acrylics) & handrails (timber/stainless steel/acrylic)
With the wide range of materials and paint / polish finishes that are available to us today, you really can create your own theme within this stair, to suit your application.
Examples of fitted stairs within DS Range we have built can be found on our website here:
The latest instalment in BBC's The Apprentice saw Sir Alan Sugar greet his prospective candidates from the steps of a Spiral Staircase Systems feature staircase. The staircase is situated in the atrium of New Broad Street House business centre in the City of London, and connects the reception with the lower ground floor level breakout area.
This substantial staircase incorporates 2 large stone plinth treads, a large tapering rest-landing which continues upwards to form a straight upper flight. Expansive cream stone treads were supported from painted mild steel stringers and toughened curved glass balustrade panels were finished with a satin polished stainless steel handrail.
Spiral Staircase Systems worked closely with RHWL Architects to produce this extremely spacious staircase that measures 1616mm between handrails at the smallest point! The size and prominent location ensure that this staircase is the focal point of the 7 floor atrium.
Aswell as the New Broad Street House staircase, every episode of the Apprentice features our glass spiral G-Fin design mentioned in our previous post - The Apprentice 2013. Which Spiral Staircase Systems stair will be featured in the final next week?
