Timber Staircase Surrey – Music Room

TIMBER STAIRCASE SURREY

A bespoke floating timber staircase supplied to a customer in Surrey.

Our client was adding a music room alongside a garage in an extension to their property in Limpsfield, Surrey and needed a straight flight stair to access the new media room above.  As with most extensions like this, space is at a premium and customers are generally not too keen on the stair taking up too much space –  even if it is a feature staircase.  On this project we initially discussed a spiral stair and an alternating stair with paddle steps before focusing on a quarter turn, and finally a straight flight.  A compliant staircase (spiral or straight) often takes up more room upstairs and downstairs than people realise.   The straight flight drawn was designed to have 2m headroom (minimum permitted) and a 42 degree pitch (maximum permitted) – therefore taking up the least amount of space whilst satisfying the building control officer.

The model itself was a floating, open WF staircase constructed in solid oak and brushed stainless steel.  This model has no stringer on the exposed side of the flight with treads cantilevering from the wall stringer.  These floating treads are held and supported by stainless steel spindles which are screwed directly into the extra deep handrail.  The handrail passes the imposed load on the tread to the newels top and bottom of the WF timber staircase.

The WF timber staircase can be supplied in any hardwood – with beech, oak, maple, birch and walnut the most popular, and can be created as a straight flight, quarter or half turn flight.

Have a look at the projects below to see different examples of the WF stair featured here as ‘Timber Staircase Surrey’ –

Bespoke Staircase – Kingston

 

‘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.

A follow up to an earlier post of our ‘Bespoke Staircase London’ project.  The project finished in February and we now have some pictures of the final result – and they look truly stunning!!

The project consisted of 4 separate flights of bespoke staircases from our Model 500 range.  Each model had 100mm thick chunky oak treads which were treated to match the colour of the flooring used throughout and frameless glass balustrade.

Please click here for a google sketch up 3-D view of the three quarter turn flights on this project with which you can pivot, zoom and fly around the staircases.

These staircases were supplied to a construction firm but we also supply direct to the end user.  If you are looking for something similar, a wow factor modern staircase for your new build or refurbishment – please get in touch for a quotation.

You can email us plans at info@completestairsystems.co.uk or call the office directly on 01794 522444.

 

The Model 500 staircase is a bespoke model and is made to suit the opening and the individuals specification.  Whilst the structure is the same for each model, each staircase supplied is unique with the type of balustrade, tread type, colour and configuration all chosen by the client.  Use the links below to see some other variations of the model 500 staircase.

Open Staircase – Bath

 

Open Staircase

A picture of a stunning, modern and open staircase supplied to a property developer in Bath.

The staircase is our floating WF structure which only has a wall stringer.  With no stringer on the exposed side, an extremely open and light effect is achieve with the treads appearing to cantilever from the wall and float in mid air!  The WF open staircase is a very popular design for those looking to open up a hall way and allow the passage of light.

This particular model was constructed with Oak parquet timber, brushed stainless steel spindles to the stair and laminated glass panel on the landing.

This staircase was supplied a couple of years ago to a specialist property company in Wiltshire and we received the attached photo this week when they place another order for another WF open staircase.  Same specification only a mirror image.

The WF staircase is available as a straight flight, quarter turn (as featured) and a half turn flight and can be supplied in widths up to 1100mm.  As the timber is structural it can only be produced in hardwood with beech, oak, walnut and ash being the most popular.

Have a look at the links below for further examples of the stunning WF open staircase.

Modern Staircase – Before and After

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.

In the meantime if you are looking for a similar modern staircase – please call us on 01794 522444 or email info@completestairsystems.co.uk.

Staircase London – Install Pics

Staircase London.

A few ‘just installed’ pictures of a project of 4 x model 500 bespoke staircases in central London.  I took these on a visit earlier this week after a pig of a drive!

All 4 flights were supplied for the one dwelling in Belgravia, and a stunning dwelling it is too!  We had three 3 quarter turn staircases directly one above another connecting ground to first to second floors.  The forth flight was a half turn connecting the ground and first floors towards the front of property.  Frameless glass balustrade was supplied and fitted to all staircases and across the landing levels. Currently protected whilst the build completes are the 100mm solid Oak treads – with a white wax finish.  I cant wait to see the finished pictures of  ‘staircase london’ – stay posted.
