A couple of pics of a straight flight Oak stair supplied to a small property developer in Chesterfield.¬† The pictures were taken just after installation with the flooring and surrounding area still to be finished.
This model was our traditional style timber staircase with glass balustrade to one side.¬† The risers were open and the bottom step had a half bullnose tread.¬† A great modern, functional¬†alternative to a ‘boring’ boxed in staircase blocking the light and dominating a room.
Further examples of this type of staircase can be viewed below.

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.¬†

All can be produced in any configuration and in a variety of timbers.¬†¬†Very modern and open flights.

Some pictures of our ever popular WF timber staircase installed near us in Southampton.¬† Being a local job¬†and such a stunning design we got Romsey Fotografix¬†in to take a couple of professional shots.¬†¬† We obviously have a number of¬† pics but have only displayed a few here – please call if you would like to see some more.
The stair itself is an OAK WF Staircase¬† – in this case witha white wall stringer and an internal curved handrail.¬† To comply with the 100mm gap rule, the customer opted for the L shaped tread option giving the appearance of an extra thick tread when ascending.¬†¬† This gives the treads a chunky look whilst keeping the open risers.¬† The white stringer certainly emphasises the floating feel to the staircase as it appears the treads are hanging from the wall.

For prices on this model – please let us know the floor to floor height, type of timber you would like and the shape of your stair (straight flight / quarter turn / half turn).¬† Call the office on 01794 522444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for either a quote or to see more pictures of this stunning timber staircase.

In 2009 we supplied 8 staircases to a property developer¬†building two new houses in Chiswick – West London.¬† These were delivered in the Autumn and the houses are now on the market.¬† A few weeks ago we got these pictures through of some of the flights supplied.
Whilst they did not go for the most modern / stunning designs, the ‘traditional’ style construction of the flights provided offered a more practical solution to the families they were looking to attract.
All the stairs were supplied in solid beech with a slightly darker stain applied in the factory.¬† The balustrade was made up of stainless steel spindles and a beechwood handrail.¬† The risers on 6 of the stairs supplied were open to allow the passage of light but were kept safe with a mini beech riser piece reducing the gap.

Why not add glass to the balustrade for a real wow factor!
As usual – for a price, please let us know the shape of the stair, the floor to floor height and the timber you would like.
These photos were taken recently by us of a staircase supplied in Surrey.¬† It was a new timber frame construction and the client selected our traditional style staircase with glass panels.¬† The flight had open risers for the lower flight, a mid platform, and then closed risers for the final flight.¬† The stair was manufactuered in solid Oak.

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.

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
We have received a batch of photos during the installation of straight flight oak staircase with glass balustrade to both sides.¬† The timber staircase has been installed in a unfinished property near Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.¬†
The structure is out ‘Traditional’ style with stringers either side.¬† You can see the matching landing balustrade running around the opening.

As always, if you would like a price, please contact the office with a floor to floor height and shape of stair (straight flight , quarter turn, half turn……………) and the type of timber you would like.
The most common are beech and oak but we offer Maple, Birch, Elm, Ash, Walnut…. virtually any timber.
Some more WF pictures just received for our portfolio on a CD sent by our customer.¬† This time from the town of Battle in East Sussex.
This WF is in beech in a quarter turn configuration.¬† You can see how the open nature of the model (no stringer on exposed side and open risers) gives the entire hallway in this house a light, airy feel.
