‘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.
