The customer :

Pragma-tec is a company specialised in the realisation of installations, whether they are engineering projects, welded steel or stainless steel construction, or the mechanical assembly of production equipment.

The Project :

A 100% made-to-measure staircase concept manufactured in their workshops. To do this, a 3D study was carried out by their team

The design  :

  • Central stringboard: IPN laser welded and sandblasted
  • Steps: brushed stainless steel folded sheets.
  • Railing : brushed stainless steel 304L
  • Safety : treadtex anti-slip sheet

Below is a video of the 100% made-to-measure staircase concept:

Bonding of stainless steel gratings on the steps

Pragma-tec called on our technical expertise to meet their needs: bonding stainless steel gratings to the stainless steel steps to provide an anti-slip surface and guarantee user safety.


Samaro proposed the Araldite® 2048-1, which following trials was validated by the customer.
