Case Studies - Oak staircase with glass balustrade in barn conversion

REF: 34322-walker

3D Model;

Notable Features:

32mm Treads:

Usually, on a staircase manufactured "standard construction", treads are 22mm; however, on this staircase, the customer elected for 32mm treads. This is because thicker treads generally look better, though this is subjective.

Square Handrail & Bottomrail:

This staircase features a square handrail & rectangular bottomrail; the customer chose this due to wanting a plain look to fit into this modern barn conversion.

Clamped Glass:

Glass is held in place by either embedding into a groove or with glass clamps. Glass clamps come in a "D-shape" or "square" style, and this staircase features "square" clamps, which are "brushed" finish.

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.
