Fire Escapes & Staircases

for all your bespoke metal fabrication requirements

Steel Fabrication For

Individuals & Businesses

Staircases whether internal or external are used as a means of access or as a fire escape for the property. Over the years, metal staircases have become increasingly favoured over timber due to the longer lifespan and low maintenance. Especially in Cornwall with our corrosive sea air.

Where space is limited, the need for a spiral staircase arises, and this can take up a space of 1.2m (1200mm) as a minimum. For each staircase, we also carefully select the correct tread type, such as anti-slip treads for external staircases, or wooden steps for a more homely feel for the interior of your property.

Handrails for staircases can be a variety of designs which will all meet current regulations, where a simple handrail is needed, we recommend galvanised handrails, for a higher end finish we can sue stainless steel and glass toughened glass panelled balustrades. Generally we will require an onsite survey to ascertain what is required in order to design, make, and build. Where restricted site access is a problem, we always make our staircases in small manageable sections for ease of transport and installation.

A galvanised staircase should have a life of 25 – 30 years before the need for a major maintenance occurs.

When existing stairs are in place, we ensure that the removal of the current stairs takes place the same day as the new staircase being installed. When the stairs are a fire escape, we make sure that at the end of the day the new stairs are use-able or make sure other arrangements are in place to ensure a fire escape is readily available. If you require a quote or would like to place an order, please get in contact with us using the contact page.

Alternatively, we are open Monday to Friday 9-5 at our workshop to discuss your project.

Some Of Our

Satisfied Clients

"Mathew and Nick made a beautiful garden arch from a similar arch photograph I supplied. It is perfect for what I wanted and exactly what I requested. It is substantially made and galvanised. They were easy to contact and patient, as I changed my measurements several times, also charged a very fair price for what must of been alot of work. They also delivered the item so I would highly recommend them."

"An incredible local Cornish company. I wanted an internal metal staircase for an attic conversion. Mathew visited the site and measured up the area and created a drawing for me, advising what would be best in the space. We agreed on a price and the spec and colour. I am so pleased with the result!! The quality, detail and craftsmanship is incredible. He has painstaking delivered a beautiful piece of work, and charged me the agreed price, even though, with
