Case Studies - White Oak staircase with two quarter landings, stop chamfered posts, spindles and pyramid caps.


REF: 13630-dowsett

3D Model;

Notes;

This staircase was specified to meet the requirements set out by our customer, it is manufactured entirely from White Oak timber and uses contemporary stop chamfered balustrade components for both the 90mm posts and 41mm spindles, the White Oak pyramid caps also compliment this staircase perfectly.
     Each width on this staircase is different, this is acceptable to building regulations and was done in order that the staircase appeared more grand when you approached it from the bottom, so rather than widths one and three both being 950mm, width one is 1000mm and width three is 900mm so the bottom section is wider when you approach. 
     Also, this staircase has a shallower pitch than is 'normal' a normal staircases pitch/angle is 42 degrees which is the maximum building regulations allow in the UK, however this staircase has a angle/pitch of 38.5 degrees, the effect of this is that the staircase is more pleasant to walk up as it's shallower and also feels more grand.

Also known as space saver or loft staircases, these are half the length of a normal staircase but can only be used in certain scenarios.

Other Layouts:

We also offer other staircase layouts, these include, paddle stairs, S-shape stairs, T-shape stairs or stairs with three or more turns. We also offer stairs suitable for commercial buildings which are wider and made from more substantial materials than domestic staircases.

Styles & Materials

Construction Methods:

All layouts of staircases can be constructed in different ways which will effect the final finish, these include:

  • Open riser construction; this is where the risers are left open with either a timber strip or metal bar built in to comply to regulations.
  • Cut string construction; where the sides of the strings are cut away so the treads can be seen, this can either be done in a modern or traditional way.

Materials:

The materials used on your staircase will have a dramatic effect on how they look, most stairs will use the following materials.

  • Pine; all our stairs are manufactured from high quality furniture grade pine, we do not use any whitewood.
  • White Oak; we can manufacture all or part(s) of your staircase from premium White Oak, to give that stunning finish.
  • Glass; we offer stairs with glass balustrade, either as small panels or large panels, secured with brackets or by embedding with a groove.
