Case Studies - Oak exposed back staircase with square twist spindles.

REF: 50948-hunt

3D Model:

Notable Features:

41mm Oak Square Twist Spindles:

Square twist spindles have become fashionable recently, and we're getting asked about them more frequently. We're currently only offering them in oak.

Exposed Back Construction:

Most staircases we manufacture are "standard construction" in that the area is held together using wedges and glue blocks, meaning the underside of the staircase needs to be covered. However, we can manufacture stairs which are "exposed back".

Exposed back stairs do not have any wedges of glue blocks, so there's no need to cover the underside, creating a feature that can look very impressive.

Feature Treads:

This staircase features two feature treads.
- Tread one is a double-going curtail (curved).
- Tread two is a bullnose (curved).

These two feature treads allow the bottom post to be set back by two treads (approx 500mm). They are allowing the hallway to feel bigger and giving the staircase a grander appearance.

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.
