Case Studies - Oak stair with glass balustrades

REF: 7491-rytis

3D Model;

Notable Features:

Four Kite Winder Box:

Both of these staircases feature four kite winder boxes. We recommend using something other than four kites, as, to make them comply with current building regulations, you must have one of the winder treads totally out of the post, which can cause issues with string build-up. As such, we recommend three kite winder boxes as the preferred way of manufacturing a window box.

Two Interconnecting Staircases:

When there are two staircases above each other, as in this case study. Elegantly connecting them can be a challenge. Ideally, the posts would line up. However, because the layout of these stairs is different, that's just not possible. Instead, the two staircases shown here are connected by a length of matching handrail with an embedded glass panel.

Custom Feature Treads:

Usually, feature treads are made to a set radius, which defines how far past the post they protrude. However, sometimes this means they protrude too far. We can manufacture custom feature treads that don't protrude as far on request.

Side Lit Treads:

The customer wanted the treads to be side lit for this staircase, so we drilled 20mm holes in the stair's strings to accommodate their lights based on the specification that they supplied. TKstairs can offer this service if required. Please get in touch with us for more details.

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.


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.
