Case Studies - White Painted & White Oak cut string staircase with metal balusters.
This staircase was manufactured by us for a customer who wanted a made to measure cut string staircase with metal spindles.
On a cut string staircase, the spindles do not go into a bottomrail on the string and are instead fixed into the treads themselves, because of this, a longer spindle has to be used on the angle than normal.
It's worth noting that on this staircase, the areas which were to be painted white were mostly pine, the visible timber parts were White Oak, however the customer has stained these a darker colour to create the dark contrast which can be seen in the photos.

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.
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
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.
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.
