Spiral Staircase Dorset
Stunning model 71 spiral staircase pictures from a customer in Poole, Dorset!
The model 71 spiral staircase is our most popular bespoke spiral staircase that we supply- for the simply reason it creates a stunning impression.¬† It is also very versatile with the treads supplied in any hardwood (oak and beech being the most popular) and the riser and going custom made for each project.
This particular spiral staircase was supplied to a customer in Poole to provide access to a new basement conversion.¬† Passage of light was the key so open risers were a must! ¬†¬†To comply to the 100mm sphere rule we included subtle 8mm thick acrylic riser pieces to reduce the gap without affecting the light passing through.¬† What is becoming extremely popular with the model 71 spiral staircase is to have curved acrylic or glass panels wrapping around the spiral instead of spindles.¬† This transforms to the spiral and again maximises the passage of light.
This spiral staircase was supplied with beech tread with three non slip groves and brushed stainless steel newels and centre column .¬† Overall diameter 1500mm diameter (ensuring a 600mm clear tread width for regulations) and a floor to floor height of 2800mm with 14 risers.¬† Also supplied was 3m of matching landing balustrade to complete the stunning addition to the build.
If you could like more information of the model 71 spiral staircase ‚Äď please get in touch.¬† We have a showroom in Romsey (Hampshire) and you can email any plans to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01794 522444 for a chat.

The new staircase showroom in our new location in Romsey is coming on but still a bit of work to do.¬† Offices have been up and running for a couple of months and we plan to have fully finished the showroom by the end of November.
Reception area getting there...
This week we had a 100m square wall plastered and painted and next week the glass balustrade around the arke stair show area on the mezzanine level.

The week after we fit the main showroom spiral then the flooring will go down.¬† Will obviously post some pictures when complete!
Office - where the action takes place!
This will be a stunning staircase showroom (promise)

Spiral Staircase supplied for a loft conversion in Chatham, Kent.¬†
Our client selected the model 71 system which is a bespoke model. The rotation had to be made to suit the opening and surroundings.¬†
This spiral was constructed with solid oak treads and brushed stainless steel spindles and centre column.¬† To comply with the 100mm gap rule, matching stainless steel riser bars were provided to reduce the gap between the treads.¬† The stair was provided with a couple of metres of matching landing balustrade running horizontally across the void.¬†Being bespoke, the¬†system can have stainless steel newels posts (top and bottom – instead of timber as shown here) the handrail can be stainless steel and the timber can be beech, oak, maple, birch, ash and a few more to boot – please call to check.
This spiral was for a loft conversion but the model 71 system is supplied in diameters large enough for a main domestic staircase – up to 2m in diameter!¬†With the relevant clear tread width, centre, outer and inner going dims and spindle / riser gaps etc etc¬†to satisfy BS5395 – category B.

Some stunning pictures of a bespoke spiral staircase supplied to a customer in Chichester.
This model has ‘chunky’ treads produced in walnut which box in the steel tread support.¬† Our customer opted for simply powder coated steel spindles and handrail which was continued around the opening upstairs.¬† Also supplied was a matching Walnut apron and Walnut floor rail for the landing balustrade.
This is a domestic spiral staircase providing access to one room.¬† It was 1600mm diameter and spanning a floor to floor height of 2560mm.
This spiral staircase is bespoke and therefore can be produced with any type of timber treads, the centre column can be powder coated any colour and the balustrade can be stainless steel instead.¬† Anything else – please ask!!!

It has been a few weeks now since the show in Birmingham but just thought I would post some comments.
Although we had a very small stand in an ‘on paper’ bad position it was pretty succesful. We were situated near the toilets / food hall and the seminar theatres so got a fair amount of passing trade. Although we signed up too late to get into the showguide we had plenty of interest and have spent the last two weeks quoting solidly.
We do love talking about staircases and we did just that for four whole days!!!
Some pictures we have just received from a model 76 supplied for a project in Maidstone, Kent.
Spiral staircase with acrylic treads and stainless steel balustrade creating a stunning centre piece with an open feel. The balustrade consists of several horizontal 10mm stainless bars which wrap around the circumference of the spiral emphasising the swoop of the flight.

We now have some pictures -
