Stainless Steel Staircase

EeStairs often designs and manufactures staircases using stainless steel. Why is that?

To create an elegant yet durable stair, stainless steel is often used. Commonly, it receives a #4 brushed finish, but for added brilliance, it can be finished with a mirror polish.  With its great quality of resistance to rust, stainless steel is the ideal product for exterior staircase as well.

There are several different grades of stainless steel. 316 grade stainless is used for exterior applications where stainless steel is desired to be exposed. 304 grade stainless steel is commonly used for interior staircases, as it is best known for its ease of cleaning and its excellent durability. In terms of cost, 316 stainless steel is a more expensive option. As an alternative, we have fabricated several exterior staircases using 304 grade stainless and then powder-coated them for added protection. This eliminates the need for unsightly galvanizing, and provides a more durable product than powder-coated mild steel.

By using stainless steel, many unique and attractive staircases can be designed, manufactured, and installed in an endless number of applications. With its durability in all weather conditions and varying humidity levels it is a suitable solution for any dwelling, inside or out. With a stainless steel product, expect beauty for a lifetime.
