Spiral staircases are always something that can make people smile or look at in amazement. Even our own range of self fitting staircases look amazing and can be a great talking point in any modern home. But the one we will be looking at today is a real jaw dropper. (in fact it has been known to cause heart attacks!) So what is 300ft tall and needs you to sign a disclaimer just so you can climb it. This isn’t mountain climbing, its spiral climbing! We fly over to see the stunning views of the Taihang Mountains in Linzhou, China to take a look at the worlds tallest spiral staircase. It was built because the Chinese tourist officials in Linzhou, hope that this massive spiral stairs will give its visitors a truly amazing view and an experience of this incredible mountain range. It’s so tall in fact that it is said that when the wind blows it can bend and move by up to 3 foot in each direction, creaking, and with the birds flying past it can cause several people to feel very faint indeed. And to be honest it is simple scary looking but and also quite incredible all in one place. But just the thought of the staircases “creaking” and “bending” when we were halfway up makes us break out in a sweat.
We’ve got a brand new range of staircases from Arke (Fontanot) of Italy that come direct from the factory. As with all things Italian, they are very stylish, but also they are affordable.
