OGSICO fabricate staircase for oil field. Choosing the right kind of stairs requires consideration of both design and functionality. While there are many aspects to consider when choosing the right staircase for you, nothing is more important than choosing the most appropriate materials.
Steel is truly one of the most versatile and practical materials to use. Here are some benefits of choosing a steel staircase over other materials.
STRENGTH AND RELIABILITY
Steel has extremely high tensile strength. It is an alloy, usually made up of extremely strong materials such as iron ore and carbon, both with discourage dislocation at an atomic level. It is as sturdy as you can get when it comes to building materials and require little to no maintenance. Steel is non-combustible and won’t rot like wood. Bugs and insects such as termites have no appetite for steel. In fact, there are almost no elements which can threaten steel’s integrity – not wind nor fire or gale force winds. For peace of mind, you can always count on steel.
ELEMENTS OF A STAIRCASE
Steps are comprised of two sections, the tread and the riser. The tread is the horizontal part of the step that the foot is placed on. The riser is the vertical portions between each treat. Often in steel staircases, the riser of left out, giving the flight an “open stair” look. Nosing is the part of the tread that stick out past the riser.
Starting step (Bullnose) :
The starting step is a first step that may have one or two open sides and are often larger than the rest of the steps.
Stringers are the structural element that supports the tread and risers. There are usually two – one on either side of the stairs.
Winders are stairs that are narrower on one side than the other. They are used to alter the direction of the staircase (spiral staircases contain only winders).
The trim is applied where the walls meet the floor or where the tread and riser meet (think skirting for walls).
