If you’ve ever seen an old movie where the beautiful debutant makes her way down a spiral staircase into a grand ballroom, then you may have the impression that spiral staircases are expensive and only suitable for Hollywood mansions. But if you love the graceful look of the spiral staircase, you’ll be happy to know that there is a beautiful and affordable option in modular spiral staircases.
What is a modular spiral staircase?
Simply put, it is a helix shaped staircase kit that you can order to have installed in your home either by a professional or yourself if you have some DIY talent. Using our online measuring tools, or by calling us for a consultation, you can determine the exact measurements that you will need as well as choose from a variety of options for customization.
Components for our staircases are in stock, so turnaround time from order to delivery is quick – no more than three weeks in most cases. In no time, you will be enjoying sturdy, beautiful and quality spiral stairs.
Homeowners choose modular spiral stairs for many reasons. Whether it’s the convenience of being able to order them directly, the ease of installation or simply because people love the way these stairs look, the popularity of these stairs is increasing.
They are great space savers.
Unlike traditional stairs which can take up a lot of room in your home or apartment, spiral staircases are very compact. For example, say you are connecting two floors with a set of stairs. With conventional stairs, you’d require about eleven feet of length. Once you factor in the incline and the standard sized steps, the space consumed can be 22 square feet.
Spiral stairs on the other hand, can be installed in a much tinier area as they only take up about four square feet of floor space. This makes these staircases ideal, both for small spaces or any area where you’d rather take up less space with your stairs and have more space for living.
They are cost-effective
Another advantage that a modular staircase has over a traditional one is its cost effectiveness. Unlike most traditional stairs, the pieces do not have to be measured and cut onsite. This can result in a savings of both time and money.
And because they are easy to install, a professional should be able to put them in quite quickly for you. Alternatively for DIY, homeowners – installing these stairs can be a simple weekend project.
They are beautiful.
A spiral staircase is a functional work of art. Remember those sweeping staircases from the old movies? Well, you may not be going for anything quite that grand but spiral kits are still pretty eye-catching.
And don’t forget, that even with a kit, there are a variety of options for customization that can help you to make your staircase your own. Options from materials such as wood, steel and cast iron to design options are available.
To select the modular staircase that is right for you, use our online tools and select from a variety of tread styles and coverings, handrails, spindles and accessories. Or call us today for a consultation.

Prefab Stairs to Fit Any Space
Sometimes a space calls for an easy fix when it comes to stairs. You may not be too concerned with an ornate structure and simply want a product that will get the job done. Prefabricated stairs are the perfect solution for these low maintenance projects. Salter Spiral Stair offers premade stairs that can fit anywhere from a home to an industrial worksite.
The small footprint of spiral prefab stairs make an ideal solution for smaller spaces or spaces that don’t want to be overwhelmed with a large design. The spiral builds on top of itself around the center column keeping the footprint to a small circle in your floorplan. These premade stairs are the perfect alternative for spaces that may otherwise call for an unsafe ladder.
Salter Spiral Stair builds all of our prefab stairs here and breaks them down to ship in kit form. This means each piece is individually wrapped for easy transportation and installation. All of the pieces can fit together like a large erector set with the individual steps sliding over the center column and being bolted into place with zero welding needed. Your prefabricated stairs can be installed in an afternoon with the help of a friend of neighbor.

Spiral stairs modular
You want to change your interior staircases but you don’t know yet what type could fit into your space. It is quiet difficult to make a decision because it depends of course on your taste but also on who are going to use them and how often. Here are some examples of staircases that have been assembled into different kind of environment.
First you have the traditionalspiral staircase. Useful to gain space, they are convenient when it is about connecting two levels that can be in a center of a room or also in an open space loft. They don’t need a side support as the modular staircase as long as the two main supports are solid. There are perfect for young couples as main stairs because they take little space. However I won’t recommend them if you have children or elderly living in your house because they are not practical: the stairs are usually tiny, steep and narrow. In this case you could use them, as second staircase to go into rooms you don’t go so often as the house cave, the office, etc. The fact that they are customizable gives you the possibility to play with the colors, the materials that remind your environment.
If you search for a more personable kind of staircase, the modular stairs are better adapted. However you will need at least one wall to support them. They are safer than spiral staircases but can be less original. Again it depends on how much customization you would like to add when designing them.
Here is one example of one customized modular staircase made by Fontanot for the main staircase of the Stone Italiana’s head office. The architect Silvia Dalla Valle designed them. The staircase has three flights with a hot-rolled structure in satin AISI 304 steel. A stainless steel frame was specifically designed with recomposed quartz treads, a material exclusively produced by Stone Italiana. The railing is entirely made of satin stainless steel and characterized by six horizontal bars.
Finally you can also go for a style that reminds both the spiral and the modular staircase like the picture above. You will always need a wall on the side to support your stairs, but also gain space, as does a spiral staircase.
If you had to choose between spiral staircase or modular, which is one would be more your style?
I like seeing spiral staircases especially in cottages, where space is usually at a premium. Just don’t have too many tequilas… you probably won’t be able to make it up to the second floor, or if you’re up, you might come down a bit too fast and and bit too hard! 🙂
I hope you have a great, sunny and happy Saturday!

I wanted to turn around, but I was squeezed from all sides, okay I thought to play enough and calm down, but no, the movement became more assertive and assertive. After a couple of minutes his hand was clearly stroking me on the buttocks, he really liked to play with my buttocks, Then his palms went along my waist up, and between my buttocks rested someone's stake standing member. And then I started flowing.
