Spiral Staircase Kits

Spiral staircase kits provide a rewarding challenge for project enthusiasts of all experience levels. While assembly requires two people, no special skills are needed for most applications.

Space-efficient and usually a point of architectural interest, spiral staircases can be specified in standard or custom kits in a variety of designs (e.g. contemporary, Victorian, etc.) and installed indoors or out. What's more, some estimate that you can save up to 50% when ordering spiral staircases in kit form.

Before ordering a kit, here are some important things to consider:

  • Height: Floor-to-floor height will determine the number of treads, risers and degree of stair rotation.
  • Diameter: The diameter of the staircase will depend on the size of the floor opening, generally 5' to 6'. Staircases installed off a balcony face can be of almost any diameter.
  • Materials: Components come in brass, bronze and steel or maple, oak, pine and other woods. Staircases intended for outdoor use are offered in aluminum, galvanized or powder-coated steels and pressure-treated woods.
  • Building Codes: You should review your plans with a building inspector before ordering any kit.

Most manufacturers offer engineering help to ensure that your kit meets your exact needs.

Spiral staircase kits are comprised of the following components:

  • Center Column (including top cap and base plate): Opt for round, square or other shapes.
  • Steps or treads and risers: Choose wood or metal types. Some steps come with gratings or patterned filigrees; others with attachable tread coverings.
  • Handrails: Specify flat, oval, round or square designs in a clockwise or counter-clockwise application.
  • Balusters: Select from many styles and shapes.

    Here are some common considerations when ordering spiral staircase kits:

Kompleteness of Kits: Most kits come complete with all components listed above, plus fasteners and instructions.

Tools: You will need a drill, tape measure, socket set and level, plus a ladder for installation. Wood and hack saws, pipe wrenches, locking pliers and clamps may also be required. And to do the job right you need all the right tools.

Finishing: Many kits come pre-finished while others allow you to apply your clear-coats or paint to wood and metal components.

 Skill: Most kits involve screw and bolt-together assembly. Start-to-finish times range from about eight to 16 hours. You may wish to consult with a contractor before cutting and framing any through-the-floor openings.

Price Range: Standard kits can be priced as low as $375 to more than $5,000.
