Spiral Stairs and Safety
BROOMALL, Pa., December 12, 2008 Since 1931, The Iron Shop has enjoyed a reputation for outstanding design and fabrication of custom-built spiral, curved and floating stairs. Ensuring the safety of its customers and their families has always been a top priority.
Over the years, customers have asked, what makes a spiral stair safer and more desirable than a straight stair? The answers are endless; however, the following sums up why spiral stairs are the safest form of egress.
Spiral stairs are constructed in such a way that there are a variety of places to hold onto when ascending or descending the stair - handrail, center pole and spindles. The stair acts as a cage surrounding and protecting you with a rail in front of you at all times.
Spiral Stairs come in a variety of models, shapes and sizes. CODE models have been designed with the safety of small children and pets in mind. These stairs have no greater than a 4 inch space between vertical balusters and the size of each tread is very deep, allowing plenty of room for even the largest of feet. CODE stairs meet the very latest in residential code requirements and are perfect for all new construction.
