When your company has the opportunity to expand into a newly built office space, you want to in a sense “go big or go home”. Constructing an office building from the ground up is a time consuming and financially taxing job. While completely worth the investment, you want to make sure the office is not only going to be structurally sound, but appealing as well.
One of the essentials when building a new office is the incorporation of an outdoor staircase, particularly if you have multiple floors. Choosing the best staircase has to be carefully thought about and planned for. Not every type of staircase will suit your new office space.
For starters, you have to consider the following:
- Available space
- Average daily use
Since your outdoor staircase will be view-able by all, you will most likely want a staircase that looks great, which will only add to the appearance factor of the new building. Curved and spiral staircases are both beautiful and functional.
Spiral staircases are constructed of the strong material of stainless steel for durability and strength. Our exterior spiral staircases are also hot-dipped into galvanized steel for a high-end feature that can withstand any weather element. For outdoor usage, a spiral staircase takes up the least amount of ground space and it looks great. Our exterior spiral staircases are also hot-dipped into galvanized steel for a high-end feature that can withstand any weather element. Spiral staircases have a unique open look, but are completely safe for frequent use.
Curved staircases can be built of a variety of materials, but for outside use you want to use either stainless steel or metal to protect it from weathering and damaging. A curved staircase is one that has spiral geometry without a center pole. Curved staircases are very architecturally appealing. The curve is nowhere near as dramatic as the spiral, but even the slight curve looks great. The steps are wide enough for frequent office visitor usage as well.
Incorporating an outdoor staircase is a unique opportunity to tie in functionality and architectural design into your new office building. Here at Acadia Stairs, we can help you design a spiral or curved outdoor staircase as well as a variety of other staircase options. Contact us today.
