Canal designed and installed and impressive steel and glass feature staircase for a commercial setting. This bespoke design comprised of four joint free, smooth helical staircases, connected by an intermediate landing fabricated from reinforced concrete. The Canal team designed each staircase to comply with BS5395: Part 2, 1984 (spiral and helical staircases) and Building Regulations Approved Document K.


The architects ORMS of London tasked the team at Canal Architectural to design a commercial helical staircase that was completely unsupported from below. The challenge was to create the right combination of strength as well as achieving simple lines. Without compromising the integrity of the design the upper floor needed to be decked out with architectural steelwork; creating a circular opening strong enough to support the load of the floating staircase.

Phipp Street

This straight feature stair and glass bridge is located in a spacious office in the heart of London. The mild steel structure accentuated the urban feel of this commercial space. The laser cut risers came complete with brass nosing inserts for a contemporary appearance and completed with a wax finish.

The Stables

Canal were approached to manufacture a bespoke, straight staircase for a residential property in Kent. The architect wanted to allow as much light in as possible to permeate throughout the property which meant incorporating extensive amounts of glass into the design. The specification required a contemporary steel staircase structure with glass balustrades and treads. The structure and handrails were manufactured in stainless steel and a satin polish finish was applied to provide a brushed appearance. Pig nose fixings were applied to the glass and stringer, which married up the initial welded fixings to hold the glass panels in place.

Yew Tree House

Canal Architectural were approached to design a bespoke staircase for the homeowner of a luxury apartment in the Liverpool area. The property owner worked closely with the Canal technical sales team to design a contemporary staircase that provided access to the upper balcony area of the apartment. The final result was the design and supply of a minimalist Cantilever staircase. The intelligent piece of engineering anchored in at only one end, allowing the the protruding construction to overhang. Finally, dark stained oak treads were added to the Cantilever structure in line with latest design trends of natural and urban finishes.
