‘Bespoke Staircase – Kingston’ was a recently completed model 500 staircase supplied to a private client.
What made this model fairly unique is that the customer embedded the zig zag wall stringer into the wall to create a cantilevered effect with the treads coming straight out of the wall!
Our client cut a notch in the existing wall, positioned and bolted the steel stringer in place and carefully plastered up to each tread. To avoid any of the plaster cracking, a small piece of ply was placed on the wall side of the tread before plastering. Once the plastering had been completed, this piece of ply was removed and the small gap was then filled with white silicon to allow a small amount of movement.
This bespoke staircase consisted of 60mm solid oak treads supported by a zig zag stainless steel stringer on the outer side. Above this were some brushed stainless steel newel posts which supported 10mm toughened glass panels. These were topped with a 50mm solid oak handrail. It was a total transformation from the original staircase and it opened up the entire hallway.
The model 500 bespoke staircase is a very versatile system available in a variety of timber, staircase configurations and finishes. Have a look at the links below to see some previous examples of this bespoke staircase.

First post of the year and a nice picture to start things off.
A bespoke staircase supplied to a customer in Birmingham.
The old classic – the model 500 staircase, one this occasion with beech treads (stained) zig zag top and bottom stringers. The staircase was supplied as part of a major refurbishment and we were specified by the architect who happened to be the son-in-law of the clients!

A Modern Staircase was installed last week in Farnborough, Hampshire.
As part of a refurbishment, our client needed their current carpeted quarter turn staircase replaced with a stunning modern staircase, offering light and space.
Instead of maintaining the existing square platform at the turn we introduced winding treads which saved a little space, created an nice angle to the stringers and actually increased the depth of the individual treads – making the flight easier to ascend.
The model 500 modern staircase was selected with steel laser cut stringer and solid oak treads. The oak treads had an integrated downstand at the front to ensure it met building regulations. Frameless glass balustrade was supplied down the internal side and this was topped with an oak handrail.
The final floor is to be laid in a couple of weeks and we will be back to take some finished pictures then.
