the description says this one doesn't flex at all, which seems a bit hard to believe:

the first one is just a steel band & i think the solid one looks is stone or concrete. now i think the steel one is possible because it's staggered. if it were folded so that it just went straight up like a ladder (in the same vertical plane) it would flex. since it's staggered it pulls from the two anchor points on the wall which maintains the tension. something like that anyway.

I don't know if this one was added yet. These are in the 1914 Caracol Tower at the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles. Amazingly, the 250,000 objects in the museum collection were stored in the tower and these stairs were the only access. The tower was recently restored and the objects removed to other locations.

Very clever - is it called genetic because it has something in common with DNA?

Meanwhile, here are a couple from Swindon, Wiltshire.
