When it comes to creating an impressive look, EeStairs® floating staircases are in a class of their own. That may explain why they’re so popular and so intriguing. 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.
