7th December 2010
We visited one of our suppliers in Sweden earlier this year and thought we would post a few pictures of our trip.
They produce our stunning modern and open¬†timber staircases - each one custom made for each customer.
They had just installed a couple of new machines which improved precision in cutting the timber stringer and gave more control with the smaller details.¬† Whilst there we had some intensive training on the staircase drawing program which we hope to progress with back in the UK and provide drawings when preparing quotations.¬†

The staircases manufactured at this factory are -
The WF bespoke timber staircase
The Traditional style bespoke timber staircase
The Stepped Style bespoke timber staircase
The Spirit style bespoke timber staircase
All can be produced in any configuration and in a variety of timbers.¬†¬†Very modern and open flights.
Just a quick mention about the Vat increase taking place 1st Janaury.¬† Going back up to 17.5% will make quite a difference to the cost of some of our staircases.¬† Whilst we are not fully open over the next week, someone wll be in the office for a few hours each day to check emails and phone calls.¬† Any urgent messages / emails will be responded to.
Make sure you get your order in!!!
And of course – have a happy new year!!
These pictures were emailed over the weekend of a stunning Maple timber staircase installed in Cheshire.
The balustrade is made up from glass infill panels which also continues around the opening along the landing level.

This model has a large half landing and an enlarge bullnose step for tread 1.¬† The mini maple riser pieces keep the stair ‘open’ whilst complying with the 100mm gap rule.
You can see similar case studies using the links below-
What is crucial when pricing this type of stair (apart from the floor to floor height and stair width) is the type of timber and the configuration of the flight.¬† Please call the office to discuss – 01794 522444
Some pictures just in showing a stunning half turn timber staircase installed earlier this year.¬† The second matching model down to the basement is being installed next week.¬†
This model has oak treads and white painted stringers to both sides.¬† The internal stringer is curved at the turn to create an impressive swoop effect.

Custom Made Oak staircase
This stunning stair is based on our traditional structure.¬† Traditional by name but not by nature as you can see the modern twist using traditional materials.¬† We call it the traditional structure as the stair is supported by ‘conventional’ stringers to each side.¬†
To view other stairs in the same ‘traditional’ structure by in different designs / materials please have a look here -
For a price, please let us know the configuration, the floor to floor height and an idea of the materials you would like.
