UK’s Top 5 Best Selling Spiral Staircase Kits

In this article we cover our Top 5 all-time best-selling spiral staircase kits. If you are thinking of buying a DIY spiral staircase kit, check out this post and see why, consistently over the years, our top 5 outsell all the others. We started selling spiral staircase kits online back in 2004, so after 14 years we consider ourselves experts in our field. Read on and see what our other customers have chosen, and why!

1. Gamia Deluxe 1400 with wooden handrail

The Gamia Deluxe spiral staircase, our no. 1 best seller for 14 years!

The Gamia Deluxe spiral staircase, our no. 1 best seller for 14 years!

Our best seller of all time, a richly deserved accolade for this classic design of spiral staircase kit. The combination of low prices and high specification are what keep this staircase a perennial best-seller. Featuring clean good looks, a solid beech handrail, solid beech treads, and (most importantly) this is the smallest spiral staircase on the UK market that fully meets building regs. Available in Silver-Grey or Black finish, with natural beech or dark stained beech treads and handrail, you really can’t go wrong with this fabulous spiral. Take a closer look on our website….

2. Artemis Premium Spiral Staircase

Artemis Premium spiral staircase with wooden handrail, shown here in white and natural beech

Launched in 2010, The Artemis spiral staircase was an instant hit due to its wide range of finish options, and premium quality fixtures and fittings. This is a really solid staircase, built to withstand heavily trafficked areas. The Artemis has been used in every type of location, from humble loft conversions to car showrooms, as primary staircases in the home, commercial office staircases, house extensions, even Schools!  Its no coincidence that, like the Gamia Deluxe, the Artemis spiral staircase features a wooden handrail as standard. We Brits seem to prefer the look and feel of solid wood over plastic handrails, wood adds a touch of class and quality you just don’t get with pvc! Check out the Artemis on our website.

 

3. Montreal Classic 4 Spiral Staircase

Montreal Classic 4 spiral staircase in Grey with Oak treads

The Montreal Classic 4 spiral staircase is a simple clean Danish design, and the reason it sells so well is the fact that it has Oak treads at a never-before seen price! Well OK, they aren’t solid oak treads, but a form of thick veneer over a multiplex core. However, the real oak finish means the multiplex core is undetectable when the staircase is assembled. So you get the strength benefits of modern laminated construction, and the look of solid oak, without the high costs.  If you prefer the look of beech instead of oak treads, that option is available too. Colours are Grey or White, with a Black option arriving around the middle of 2018. BUYERS NOTE: There are different versions of the Montreal, such as the Montreal Classic 3, only the Montreal Classic 4 meets building regs! Check out the Montreal Classic 4 here.

4. Graz space saver staircase

Graz semi-spiral space saver staircase

Graz semi-spiral space saver staircase. A neat and versatile way to fit a small staircase into your home.

The Graz is not strictly speaking a spiral staircase, its a space saver staircase with paddle shaped treads. However, it has a neat trick which allows it to form a curved flight, so you get a semi-spiral shape, with up to 180 degrees of turn! Or you can make it into a straight flight, or have a turn at the bottom, or a turn at the top etc. The choice of layout is yours when you assemble it. Its this flexibility in layout, coupled with a low price, that makes the Graz so popular. One thing to be aware of, the Graz does not meet the exacting requirements of building regulations so won’t suit all projects. For a building regs compliant space saver take a look at the Game Mini Plus instead.

 

5. Gamia Zink exterior spiral staircase kit

Gamia Zink outdoor spiral staircase is galvanized for excellent weather resistance

Last but not least we have the Gamia Zink exterior spiral staircase. Not only is this a best seller, but we love this staircase for its longevity and durability, especially in our UK climate! The Gamia Zink is hot-dip galvanized, which means the steel components are immersed in molten zinc during production, to form a protective layer against corrosion. Its a highly effective way of protecting steel against the elements, and make the Gamia Zink  a cost-effective way of adding a spiral staircase to the exterior of your property. Our clients have used these spiral stairs for accessing balconies, exterior doors, garage conversions, roof terraces, roof gardens, and in one instance a school used two of them (stacked one on top of the other) to access a tree house! They also get used indoors, to give an industrial look to a modern interior, without breaking the bank. Like the other spiral staircase kits in the Gamia range, the Zink meets building regs and British Standards in the UK. See the webpage for more information…….
