Helical and spiral staircases

31 marca 2022

When it comes to bespoke staircases, there are two main types that are often confused – helical and spiral staircases. While they may look similar at first glance, their structures are actually quite different. Let’s take a closer look at the key differences between these two types of stairs.

First and foremost, helical staircases have a spiral shape, while spiral staircases have a helical shape. This is the most obvious difference between the two types of stairs. Helical staircases curve along a single plane, while spiral staircases curve around a central pole.

Another key difference is the way in which people ascend and descend them. With helical staircases, people use the steps to walk up and down the staircase. This is not the case with spiral staircases – people use the handrail to walk around the central pole.

Finally, helical staircases are typically used for smaller spaces, while spiral staircases can be used in both small and large spaces.

So, what’s the difference between helical and spiral staircases? Helical staircases have a spiral shape, while spiral staircases have a helical shape; helical staircases curve along a single plane, while spiral staircases curve around a central pole; people use the steps to walk up and down helical staircases, while people use the handrail to walk around the central pole of spiral staircases; and helical staircases are typically used for smaller spaces, while spiral staircases can be used in both small and large spaces.
