Winder Stairs (Delayed Spiral Stairs)
What is a Delayed Spiral?
What you may know as a curved staircase may also sometimes have the name “delayed spiral” staircase or winder staircase. Each have the same gentle curving motion to their frame that gives the staircase its graceful and elegant look, which is why this category of stair may be what you picture when you think of a regal location with a grand entrance. However, this category of stair is not just for regal locations, it can add a touch of elegance to any home or commercial space with its flowing arc shape.
Take two stairs like this and place them side by side to form a sort of bridge where the two stairs share the same landing and you have what some may call an arched stair. This last kind of stair really brings to mind images of people dressed up on their way to a formal event, which makes this kind of stair a great addition to any commercial luxury venue.
Benefits of a Delayed Spiral or Curved Stair
The most identifiable benefit of a delayed spiral or curved staircase is the inimitable look it offers for your space. If you own a commercial wedding venue or other formal event venue, then this is likely the ideal type of stair to achieve the look you want. Especially if your venue hosts professional convention events, then your stair can help in generating an unforgettable impact on everyone attending events you host, which means return clients.
In terms of residential use, if your home has a modern, open foyer then you might consider a custom floating delayed spiral to maintain that modern and open look. So a delayed spiral can offer you traditional elegance and a minimalist use of space.
