Our Award Winning Contender is by far, our most popular metal staircase. Its modern design, central stringer, clean lines and glass balustrades will add a contemporary feel to any hallway, creating a dramatic and stylish effect.
The self supporting design means there is no requirement for newel posts. Hardwood treads are attractively fixed on top of the 'z formed' stepped, central string for a minimalist and elegant effect.
This bespoke staircase can be configured with kites and winders, individual runs and rise requirements, to suit your specific design requirements. The steel central string can be powder coated to any RAL colour. This flexibility proves extremely versatile and can be configured to blend with your interior design project.
Treads are made from either Oak or Ash. Both hardwoods are chosen for their strength and durability. We also offer other timbers such as Walnut or Mahogany. Alternatively, the treads can be stained or painted to any colour of your choice. Treads are 40mmm depth with step nose as standard, different thickness treads are available as options.
Frameless glass, or a stainless steel or timber handrail is fixed to the top of the glass balustrade, as standard. For a more enclosed feel, stainless steel or wooden posts, tensioned wires or vertical spindles are popular design options.
As an option, the central string can be made from hardwood, for stairs with straight runs, half and quarter landings.
The Contender staircase can be fitted at the end of the project to reduce the chance of damage by other trades.

A similar design is the Fireball, where the treads are recessed around the large metal stringer running down the centre.
