With the help of ARCHLine.XP's built-in staircase and railing design tools you can create standard or bespoke elements whenever you need from simple to the most complex ones.

The software is able to warn you exceeding the ergonomic limits, but you can actually decide to keep it if necessary - for example in case of a surveyed, irregular shaped stair.

Here below you can choose projects to download and study on your very own computer to learn about the extraordinary stairs and railing designed in ARCHLine.XP.

Floating staircase

with wooden steps & thick glass side panel

The floating treads are attached on one side, either to a wall or a stringer. On the opposite side they are unsupported, giving the appearance that they are ‘floating’ in space. Structurally there is no need for a railing, however it is possible to mount one, either on or against the steps.

This project is a free combination of possibilities when designing in ARCHLine.XP - the steps of the stair are made by using the stair tool and the side panel was created by profiling a wall unit.

You can change very detailed settings for a stair and as you will see it in the sample project it is really simple to design such a structure. To create a side panel like this, all you need to do is to modify the so called "front profile" of the wall and the software will use that 2D shape to transform the original wall unit into something extraordinary.

 

 

Office reception stair

Custom stair with steel support & railing with perpendicular banisters

This staircase is a great example of how you can flexibly combine certain types of structures and create something that is really unique and bespoke.

 

It is worth checking how the support of the stair was created in the project. You can create such a railing using the so called 2D side view layout of the railing. Also you can check how the designer combined the staircase with the furniture on the side.

 

 

Spiral stair

with glass steps

Spiral staircase is both functional and attractive. Spiral staircases consist of a central column, with stairs winding around it from bottom to top.

You can create a spiral staircase like this in just a minute and in that short time you can also check a few variations easily.

Structural requirements demand that the column is often made of stainless steel, however the steps and railings can be made of nearly any material, including wood, steel and glass like in this example.

Classic spiral stair

with side panel

Sometimes the simplest shapes are the most beautiful. You can create a spiral staircase like this in just a minute and in that short time you can also check a few variations easily.

 

When you tweak the settings of a stair you can make changes for the tread, the cover slip or the vertical cover and you can also set up the support and/or side panels.

 

Modern staircase

with wooden steps & and steel railing

Thanks to the flexible approach of the staircase and railing design tools you can create a structure that combines the different items. In this example you can see an L-shaped staircase with rest. The steps are made by setting up the settings for the coverlsip and the vertical cover. The side support of the staircase can also be set with the same ease.

 

The railing demands extra attention - as you can see there is a mixture of different divisions combined together to make this specific design.
