Our 'G-Fin' Staircase Design

Over the years we have developed, tested and perfected our 'G-Fin' staircase. We have designed this range to work with different treads including glass, solid timber and stone.
 
The 'G-Fin' system is very versatile and can be incorporated into a spiral, straight or helical staircase depending on your requirements. Take a look at some designs below.

Introducing HeLux by Spiral Staircase Systems for Straight Stairs, Helical Stairs and Spiral Stairs

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.

HELUX 01

HELUX 03

As well as illuminating the underside of the handrail, the HeLux system also gives the handrail a pleasant warm feel.

3D Printed Staircase No. 2 - Triple Flight Dog-Leg Stair

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 Apprentice - New Broad Street Staircase

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.
