Custom Spiral Stairs

In the world of spiral stairs, you will come across a lot of pre-manufactured, ready-to-ship spiral stair kits. These pre-fabricated spiral stair kits can work well in a space where you need a simple solution and you’re looking for a “plug and play” option. But what if you have your own design ideas? Great Lakes Stair has worked on many custom and semi-custom spiral staircase projects in our 32+ year history.

When thinking about custom spiral stairs, there are 3 levels or classifications to consider:

  1. Custom spiral stairs involve fabricating the stairs to a customer’s architectural specifications. Custom spiral stairs can run the gamut of design as long as they meet all the engineering and safety criteria. We build these custom spiral stairs specifically for a particular job to fit and work in a space with a custom design.
  2. Semi-custom spiral stairs are where we will blend together the customer’s design ideas and specifications with design elements of our own.
  3. Production Spiral Stairs are where the staircase manufacturer will incorporate their own design elements and ideas to work with the customer’s space.

At Great Lakes Stair we can make a custom spiral stair for the most modest of budgets all the way up to projects where budget isn’t really a concern: the project is more about will the spiral stairs satisfy the design element required for the project. In fact, we find that customers are more conscientious about finding a stair manufacturer that can ensure the custom spiral stair design can be built before price is discussed. We understand customers don’t have time to waste and they want to make sure the company they are speaking with can build what they are envisioning. And with 32+ years of experience building custom spiral stairs as well as all styles of stairs, Great Lakes Stair is that company.

What Elements of a Spiral Staircase Are Customizable

The basic design consideration of a spiral stair is that it wraps symmetrically around a center pole. There are other styles of turning staircases such as circular stairs, curved stairs, helical, and winding stairs which can vary in the way they turn, but a spiral stair wraps symmetrically. Check out our article on “Understanding Spiral Stairs” for more information.

When it comes to what design elements can be customized with a spiral stair, the answer is pretty much every element of that spiral stair is customizable as long as it meets all safety criteria and codes.

At Great Lakes Stair we have done a wide variety of custom spiral stair jobs that use materials such as wood, metal, glass, vinyl and combinations. We have even made spindles for spiral stairs out of tree branches! As long as it meets safety criteria we can build it. Additionally, we have done custom treads and custom center poles out of a variety of materials to achieve the look that customers envision. Often, we have built custom spiral stairs for customers using wood from their property, for a truly one-of-a-kind custom spiral stair.

At Great Lakes Stair we take care to design the custom spiral stairs so that it can be delivered and installed in sections while still maintaining that custom appeal.
