Case Studies - Oak open riser staircases with embedded glass and square feature treads.

REF: 45382-coggins

3D Model:

Notable Features:

Part open riser, square treads & no overhang:

Open riser staircases allow light through and make a property feel more open.
However, some variations can be achieved by altering the tread profile and tread overhang. The tread profile & overhang are as follows:
- Tread overhang; 0mm
- Tread profile; Square

The net result is that it appears to have a much thicker tread than the 32mm treads used when viewed front-on.

Step down detail at the top of the ground to first:

At the customer's request, we manufactured the stairs so that you could step down a step within the house before stepping on the stairs.
However, the posts & balustrade are extended up so they meet the final finished floor height.
It's an unusual detail. However, our design team can accommodate details such as this on request.

Embedded Glass Panels:

We offer glass panels either:
- On clamps (with a choice of style and finish).
- Embedded into a groove within the handrail & baserail.

The glass on this staircase is embedded into a groove.
All glass panels we supply are made to measure for each staircase.

Square Feature Treads:

This staircase features two feature treads:
- Tread one is a double-going curtail (square).
- Tread two is a single-going curtail (square)

Feature treads allow the posts to be set back and protrude past the stairs' width.

Given this staircase's square-edged treads, handrail, baserail, and posts, a more traditional rounded feature tread would look out of place.

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.
