At stand L41 MetallArt will be presenting its innovative portfolio in staircase construction at the London Build 2017. This includes the impressive structurally supporting soffit lining for steel stairs.

MetallArt has become a strong partner in the international staircase market and succeeded in outstanding business performance during the last years.

The structurally supporting soffit lining set new standards in representative staircase architecture. Especially for curved stairs it is a sophisticated highlight conveying sculptural appearance. Until now, however, there has been no structural effect for similar constructions. The 2D construction plans provided approximate data for the production but the soffit lining had to be adjusted manually for the individual object.

MetallArt responded to this architectural trend and developed an intersection between 3D construction (HiCAD) and FE structural analysis programs (Finite Elements). Compared with conventional framework programs the soffit lining now can be considered when preparing the structural calculation as there have been constructional modifications in the hollow parts of the stairs. This results in enormous savings in material and weight. Furthermore, a significant reduction of costs can be obtained. Another intersection linking the 3D design to the in-house laser system allows the custom-fit production of the individual components.

To obtain a more light and transparent character steel stairs with an underside soffit can furthermore be combined with filigree all-glass railings. During the last years the company has specialised in the state-of-the-art technology for this sophisticated element of design.

MetallArt has already realised a remarkable number of challenging projects at home and abroad. The structurally supporting underside soffit has had a crucial impact on the success and the beautiful appearance of these staircase projects.

Constant innovation and progress in business development

MetallArt is constantly working on up-market innovations. At the same time the company is progressing to strengthen its market power at home and abroad and has succeeded in various important competitions. The German Metallbau Award in 2016 as well as the Federal Award 2017 for outstanding innovative performances was conferred on MetallArt. In connection with this honouring even Chancellor Angela Merkel informed herself about the exceptional portfolio of the company. For its innovative capabilities and the successful positioning in foreign markets MetallArt won the cross-sectoral GlobalConnect Award 2016. Finally the great satisfaction of the numerous international customers is a success in itself.
