Hand Rails, Staircases & Fire Escapes
Witheys design and manufacture a wide range of steel staircases from simple metal access stairs to specialised galvanised fire escapes.
Steel staircases are durable, low maintenance and offer good value. They have many applications, from providing utilitarian industrial upper level access to being wrought into stylish interior design features. We are happy to craft bespoke staircases to suit your purpose and specifications.
Fire escapes can literally be life-saving, and have to be designed, fabricated and installed according to building regulations and safety standards.
Our knowledgeable experts are experienced at producing durable made to measure fire escape stairs and ladders to fit any building, designed for safety but not detracting from the exterior aesthetics of the property.
We have installed fire escapes on all sorts of buildings including schools, hotels, houses, blocks of flats and factories, in Wiltshire where we are based and further afield in Somerset and Hampshire. Even when space and access may be limited, we are able to design, fabricate and install a suitable solution to give the building occupants a means of escape in the event of a fire, and the emergency services a means of accessing the building, particularly if it is a multi-storey.
Our engineers take great care assessing proposed fire escape stairs installation locations and produce designs accordingly, tying in with the building’s overall fire evacuation scheme. Accuracy and good engineering is essential for safety, and the design must be free of any potential obstructions or hazards.
Apart from the practical and safety requirements for fire escape stairs, our clients also have the option of choosing from a range of stair tread finishes and balustrades in various styles, so that the stairs match in with the look of the building.
If you have existing fire escape stairs in place that are damaged, decayed or have become unsafe in some way we can assist you by either removing and replacing the stairs, or repairing them if that is possible.
Handrails are another tailor-made steel safety feature that Witheys manufactures, designed to be grasped and lend support and stability to anyone climbing up and down stairs, or to help those with mobility problems on access ramps, doorways and bathrooms.
We can supply and securely fit steel handrails, attached to walls or the ground, for any purpose, in any shape or size and a variety of finishes. Handrails are most commonly tubular in shape but should you want something different, speak to us and we will be happy to oblige.
All our welded steel products and structures, including steel staircases and handrails, are CE marked, showing they have been assessed and found to meet EU safety, health and environmental protection requirements.
When you need steel staircases or safety structures of any sort for a domestic or commercial property anywhere across Wiltshire, Somerset or Hampshire, you can be confident that Witheys will deliver the goods. Contact us to discuss the best solution for you.
