3D Scanning Services for staircases

Capture staircases for the addition of handrails, treads

3D laser scanning services is a great way to capture complex-shaped staircases such as spiral staircases. Our clients use the data captured from 3D scanning to create things like handrails and glass panels. A popular trend with business and high end homes is the use of curved glass panels with stairs. These are especially challenging because they must be prefabricated and can not be built onsite. Often they are ordered long in advance and shipped in from overseas at great expense. For this reason it is important that the 3D scans be very accurate, as a mistake could be very expensive. For this reason, failure is not an option.  

How long does it take?

We can often scan many flights of stairs in a day. The time needed is primarily dependent on the size of the scan scope area.  3D laser scanning services are ideal for staircases because of the flexibility that is possible with the scanner’s placement. Our scanners are extremely portable and our technicians can bring the scanner to the construction site to capture whatever you need. 

How accurate is a 3D scan of a staircase?

Generally the scans are accurate to within 1mm and can capture features on the staircase in high detail. It is even possible to capture color, such as if there are marks on the staircase that are of interest. The scanner can capture holes and grooves for mounting hardware and glass panels. What it will not capture is the smile on the customer’s face when they see how perfectly and beautifully everything fits, and how quickly and efficiently you have implemented the job.
