What are Floating Stairs?

Floating stairs are a type of straight staircase that is self-supported. Because of the self-supported design a floating staircase requires no extra support between the underside of the staircase and the floor below or a wall. This unique design makes the staircase look like it is “floating” above the ground, giving this type of staircase its name. The main support of a floating staircase is the stringer or “backbone” of the staircase. Floating stairs utilize either a single stringer or dual stringers that provide a strong connection between landings and require no extra support between the floors. This design is utilized in a lot modern designs due to its contemporary look and versatile functionality, opening up additional floor space below the staircase.

Floating staircase benefits

Because of their design, floating staircases open up additional space underneath the stair creating a more open layout in the room. In addition to more under stair space this design also does not need to be connected to a wall for support, making this a versatile design allowing for unique room layouts. The open design and unique look are a refreshing take on a classic design. Paragon’s floating stairs take the familiarity of traditional stairs and update it with an open frame and first-class engineering. Choose from two frame styles and custom design your new staircase.

Paragon Stairs’ straight floating stairs balance a traditional staircase design and modern engineering. The open frames are customizable to meet design and safety requirements for both residential and commercial spaces. Our consultative designers work with in-house engineers to find the right design for your project’s style and budget.
