Outdoor / Exterior Staircases
  • Occasionally, the zink bath that is used to galvanize outdoor staircases may leave small drops on the treads and landing platform
  • These 'drops' cannot be removed by polishing and remain visible, part of the appearance of the staircase. This may also occcur after coating such as with the outdoor metal spiral staircase type 'Sorrento' (galvanized + powder coated)
  • For an outdoor staircase this does not compromise its durability and / or longevity but when this type of staircase has been installed indoors the finish may not be as attractive as some of our other purpose built for indoor use powder coated staircases
  • Since the technical qualities of the staircase are not compromised by the appearance of these 'drops', it is unfortunately not an acceptable reason to reject the product and to return the staircase as unsuitable
FSC Certification
  • Our staircases are made from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified sources
  • These forests are responsibly managed in accordance with strict environmental, social and economic criteria
Building regulations
