Our latest article discusses the benefits of adding spiral staircases as a feature within restaurants. Spiral staircases are an increasingly popular add-on feature for restaurants; we delve into some of the reasons for this throughout the article.

Provides access to extra floor space

As with many spiral staircase projects a main reason for installation is to open up access to additional floor space, they save “vertical space”, which in many cases would otherwise be lost. This is particularly apt in restaurants where extra floor space equals extra customers and extra profits. It also allows the ;possibility of providing a more intimate dining experience with more separation of tables due to extra space.

Practical, convenient and provides access

A main reason for adding a spiral staircase to a restaurant is because of their practicality and convenience. Spiral staircases are practical for people to use and are convenient for a restaurant as a means of accessing upper/lower floors.

Low maintenance

Many restaurants have lifts installed, which is actually rather a large initial outlay. These can prove problematic, with regular call-outs, expensive maintenance costs and general hassle and inconvenience which are best avoided wherever possible. Whereas, once installed spiral staircases are virtually maintenance free and can be maintained generally as a part of the usual cleaning regime of the restaurant.

No lift phobias

The fear of lifts, which is a type of claustrophobia, is more common than many people would think. If restaurants need upper floor access it is better to provide a spiral staircase to not trigger this phobia if the worst occurs and staff or customers can get trapped in lifts.

Architectural feature and the WOW factor

Spiral staircases add an architectural feature and a WOW factor to a restaurant. This can depend on the extra spiral staircase chosen, but in general a spiral staircase is an innovative feature that opens up space and one which customers will like.
