This is just one of many applications that the Macalloy Tension System Range can be used in, and is a current trend with designers to use Tension Bars and Cables to support suspended staircases.
Customers can choose from a variety, and range of finishes, including a polished stainless steel to complement the existing surrounding architecture. Alternatively, if a more bespoke finish is required, we can offer a painted solution based on the customers’ requirements.
Having a suspended staircase has its benefits – not only is it space saving, it can also help make the area brighter – allowing light to flood in, and can reduce components and installation costs. Tension Bars become an integral part of the design aesthetically as well as a structurally. From an installers point of view, the advantages are ease of assembly, along with no secondary steelwork required, both allowing for potential reduced costs.
