    Kallisto, the pre-cast concrete spiral and helical staircase division of Milbank Concrete Products, is delighted to announce it has invested in the latest technology to provide customers with a bespoke product, tailored to suit the individual needs of all domestic or commercial requirements.

    From the initial enquiry, straight through to the design, manufacture and installation, Kallisto have extensive experience designing stairs to fit either traditional or contempory projects. Working closely with architects, engineers and designers they assist clients withachieving stunning, yet functional  pre-cast stair case installations and have previously been commissioned for staircase installations in some of the most prestigious venues in the UK.

    From its dedicated production facility in Essex, Kallisto provides an experienced team; which includes a technical and design department who work with the client to reach a solution for what is sometimes a tricky element in the building design.

    Manufactured utlising leading European technology, Kallisto stairs can be designed and adapted to meet all design requirements at an affordable price.  Whatever your design, the finished Kallisto stair adds value and intrigue to your project providing a spectacular central feature. Each staircase is bespoke, with the rise, goingand width able to be customised to suit an extensive range of projects and applications.From lavish spiral staircases in prestigious properties with generous space, to helical staircases in town house, where space is of a premium a Kallisto stair will provide your development with a central design feature.  In addition to the adaptability of the mould, the ability to manufacture off- site also makes for a highly cost-effective staircase solution for even the most elaborate staircases, as delivery can be planned to minimise disruption on site.

    Bringing an element of sophistication and elegance to any property, the versatility of concrete stairs by Kallisto stairs mean that not only are they resilient, solid and durable but they can also be attractively finished in a material best suited to the property i.e., wood, marble, stone, or tiles etc at an affordable cost.

    “Stairs are often the central feature on show when entering a building and have the potential to create a dramatic visual impact linking levels.  A beautifully designed staircase can even transform a fairly standard house and, using our innovative, bespoke mould means it is often more affordable than people think”, says Andy Mayne, Milbank Managing Director.

    Aethetics aside, there are also a number of practical reasons why utilising Kallisto concrete stairs can prove superior to using traditional materials such as timber for an access solution; the main one being strength and reliability.

    By specifying concrete, you can be sure you’ve made the right choice because it provides a fire-shielded means of escape, stops fire spreading between compartments and delays any structural collapse, in most cases total collapse.  In short, in comparison with other common construction materials, concrete offers superior performance on all relevant fire safety criteria, easily and economically.

    The Kallisto range of spiral staircases also offers thermal stability, which as a result, saves energy and produces a better indoor environment for building users.

    Kallisto staircases also offer a variety of inherent benefits to your customer.  Providing strength and reliability, concrete will not only take a heavy load, but will also withstand rotting and last for decades, providing considerable savings on potential repair and maintenance costs.

    In addition to longevity, concrete stairs from Kallisto also provide protection against water, meaning flood damage will not occur on contact, both of which are important factors in terms of insuring residential and business properties.

    In compliance with Part E of the Building Regulations, which covers the reduction of unwanted sound transmission, concrete stairs also address the issue of sound transfer, which can often be associated with utilising other frameworks, such as steel, timber and glass.
