Choosing an iron spiral staircase for your home has numerous benefits. One of the biggest is that iron can last for years when treated right. Don’t let this conjure up images of stairs that resemble jail bars. Your iron spiral staircase can be as beautiful as it is useful.
Why choose iron? This timeless metal is always in style. It’s been used for centuries because it was plentiful. It was (and still is) less expensive than other types of metal.
It is often combined with other metals. Combining it creates an iron “alloy.” Different alloys have different benefits.
Some metals, when combined with iron, make it more malleable. Wrought iron is one such example. Yet even though it’s softer and more flexible, it still maintains its strength. Most building applications are actually made from iron alloys.
