Cantilever

The Cantilever staircase is a true floating staircase design which is free of any visible structure, giving the illusion the treads are levitating.

This seamless ‘floating’ appearance creates a stunning effect which is aesthetically pleasing and enhances the natural flow of light with dramatic shadows. A distinctive feature in any room. This simplistic design of overhanging treads can give the illusion of more space within a room, allowing the designer to create some very striking design concepts.

The Cantilever staircase is particularly well complemented by a minimalist clear glass balustrade, fixed to the side of each tread further enhancing the invisibility of any structure or support to the treads. It is advised that structural glass is used, laminated and toughened glass a minimum of 8+8mm. For those that do not wish to see button glass fixings you can upgrade to concealed glass fixings, giving illusion that glass has passed through the tread itself.

Cantilever stairs can also be fabricated with your choice of steel spindles alternatives.

Glass is laminated according to BS6180:2011 providing the option to incorporate frameless glass, making the balustrade appear more invisible. For practicality, having a handrail will mean less finger prints on the glass, our stylish handrails can also give a contemporary look.

The Cantilever stair is constructed of a metal frame that is bolted to the bare wall and the treads are fitted over the frame. It is very important that the supporting wall is suitable for the weight of people running up the stairs. A structurally sound wall of solid concrete or made from 7Kn block at a minimum thickness of 100mm is required.

If your property has a different construction for the supporting wall, such as stud or masonry, following a consultation with our engineers, it may still be possible to achieve a Cantilever staircase, please contact us for more information.

Once the frame has been installed, the wall can then be finished with plaster board or wall cladding to a minimum of 50mm build up, to conceal the fixings and strings. The treads and balustrade are fitted during a second installation. It is advised this is done once other trades have completed the works needed to finish the wall.

  • No visible fixing element - gives the look of a seamless 'floating staircase'
  • Bespoke design with options of different treads, balustrade and handrail styles
  • Configurations with straight flights with or without landings, kites and winders
  • Structural supporting wall required
  • Conforms to UK building regulations

We offer an extensive selection of stains and painted finishes which provide a durable finish, whilst still retaining the unique, natural properties of the wood.
