The process of designing a safe and ergonomic staircase is deceptively difficult. Thousands of hours and vast resources have been devoted to perfecting the staircase design. Depending on the specific application, the ratio of height and depth, as well as the design of the treads themselves, can vary widely. Custom designing a staircase overlooks the highly detailed nature of the problem at hand and potentially puts your employees or customers at risk of injury.
Further, purchasing a pre-designed stair system ensures that the engineering and load-bearing capacity of the stairs has been thoroughly tested. In comparison, a custom-made set of stairs may contain unknown and untested materials or welding techniques. By sourcing your staircase from a reputable manufacturer, the design is both efficient and safe — as assured by several tests and experiences by previous customers.
