Fontanot's history began in 1947 in the carpentry shop of the Albini brothers who were passioned craftsmen working wood. Nowadays, it is specialized in several kinds of staircases.
The Albini craftsmen worked wood and made stepladders with passion and an inimitable personal style. The quality of their products led them to be one of the most prized ladder factories in the entire region. Today, Fontanot produces spiral staircases for the modern world. Moreover, after forty years the company patented the Fontanot 2, an easy tread system that revolutionised the spiral staircase idea. This system provides more walking space making this spiral staircase more comfortable and safer than any other one. Thanks to the innovative ergonomic shape of the alternate treads, the internal going is as wide as the external, so that it is comfortable to walk up and down the spiral staircase without any risk. The patented Fontanot system allows designing and devising spiral staircases in a new and innovative way, transforming them into more comfortable and safer stairs suitable for people of any age.
