But basically what is done is to replace them with other elements that contain the resistance, to make the ladder work. In many cases the wooden steps are attached to two large glass walls.
In another design they are simply attached on one side to the wall and on the other in the air, others are hung from the ceiling, and still others distribute the forces of the weight of the people, in their elaborate figures, in order to remain upright.
Of course, most of them are not advisable if you have children, so the most reasonable thing would be for this type of project to be only applied to single couples, or with large children, or to offices, where it would be showing very good taste, both in design and innovation.
