Case Studies - All Pine Double kite winder


REF: 4660-wright

Requirements;

  • An all Pine staircase with two turns in
  • Turning right; Flight one 1670mm max, Overall width 1600mm, flight 3 1670mm max
  • 2435mm finished floor height
  • To comply to current building regulations

3D Model;

Notes;

This staircase is made from a standard construction, because of the overall width of the staircase having to be 1598mm the width of the first and last flight had to be 770mm. Although these widths could be slightly bigger is a single post was used, however using a single post doesn’t always comply to building regulations as the treads can end up being too close together.

   Even though the posts were not required there has to be some sort of post for the kite winders to go into if theres no support from walls on the inside.

Specification;

  • Strings - Pine (220x32mm)
  • Treads - Pine (22mm)
  • Risers - Pine Veneered MDF (12mm) 
  • Posts - Pine, Bases (90x90mm)

We Design & Manufacture Staircases

TKstairs is one of the UK’s leading staircase manufacturers, we now manufacture in excess of 100 staircases per week delivering throughout the UK from our state of the art manufacturing facility near Hull.

Popular Staircase Layouts

Straight Staircases:

Straight staircases have no turns in them.

Quarter Turn Staircases:

These have a single turn, turning left or right, which can be either a landing or kite winder.

Half Turn Staircases:

These have two turns, left or right. Using kite winders, landings or a half landing.

For straight stairs, quarter turn stairs (single turn) or half turn staircases (two turns), these can be ordered on our website and are available for fast delivery.

Paddle Staircases:

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.
