Their new Darwin office required a spiral stair which reflected the company’s image of being industry leaders. In addition, the stair had to be very serviceable in Darwin humid environment and had to be accessible to a wide range of people form clients though to builders and staff. Finally, they wanted a staff that would act as a barrier or privacy partition between people in the waiting room and staff in nearby offices and, of course, they wanted a solution that was cost-effective.
We suggested what was then the new Enclose designs which would offer the safety and security of a solid Aluminium wrap balustrade. We suggested making the stair from Hot Dip Galvanised steel with anti-skid checker-plate treads for serviceability and longevity. The balustrade was finished in dutiable powder-coated steel and the handrail from stainless steel so that it could take a beating without showing it.
The stair was sent up to Darwin as a kit and assembled by a local builder. The design was so new that it got there and was successfully assembled before the instructions even made it!
The stair is now 4 years old and we’re pleased to hear that it looks as good as new.
