MAXU Stairs

Discipline: Product

MAXU stairs are designed for high buildings. On lower part (shown in green) of MAXU stairs, there are only common stairs. On each floor of upper part, there is one flight of private stairs embedded in common stairs, so that spaces above / under private stairs are utilized perfectly by neighboring common stairs. The private stairs consume less building space than those in a conventional duplex. The middle stairs are significantly wider than other stairs, so that greater traffic flow on the lower part of MAXU stairs is harmonized between two side stairs and the wide middle stairs.
