PAINT

Dry powder paint is heat cured to high intensity. It covers uniformly and hides traces of welding and sanding.
Durable, scratch-resistant finish.

PATINA

Powder-coated paint base with a handpainted patina finish applied with an irregular brush and covering app. 40% of the surface.

RUSTIC

We apply our colors according to a traditional patina method which involves hand-wiping in irregular strokes over a coat of baked paint. This handcrafted method allows for a natural variations from one baluster to the next for a beautifully authentic effect.

EXTERIOR PAINT (NX)

The metal is zinc plated to resist corrosion, then finished with electrostatic paint for a glossy sheen.

VENETIAN

Powder-coated paint base with a handpainted patina finish applied with an irregular brush to the corners, ornaments, and other decorative elements.

By On  01 Aug. 2019 (PTC 156) :

The staircase remains a central architectural element and is often the first thing you see when you enter a house. This is a perfect example of a contemporary staircase, with a fusion of materials (wood, glass, steel). The base of this staircase is a Paris staircase stringboard, combined with the magnificent work of Bois Franc Rive-Sud, and glass railings and steel posts.

By On  01 Aug. 2019 (PTC 156) :

With its contrasting look, this straight staircase includes glass railings, held by stainless steel glass clamps SVC-MEDL NU (Urban Black) and stainless steel stair newel posts PTC 156 NU (Urban Black), both manufactured at Prestige Métal. These modern elements combine perfectly with the cabinet-making work of Bois Franc Rive Sud to create a staircase with contemporary and classic trends.

By On  01 June 2019 (PTC 156) :

The staircase is a central architectural element in a house and remains one of the first things to be noticed. With the creative work of Escalier Multi Design and the stainless steel stair posts PTC 156 NU (Urban Black) by Prestige Metal, this floating staircase with its modern and minimalist tendencies combines the richness of wood and the contemporary side of steel.
