Modern Staircase Isle of Skye

Our client was gutting an existing property on the stunning Isle of Skye and required a light an open staircase to access the upper floor.  Together we selected the floating WF staircase which has only  one stringer on the outer side with the treads on the open side suspended in with stainless spindles.  The timber was solid beech and our client opted for the special integrated timber downstand to reduce the gap between the treads.  The flight was a quarter turn and quite a tight fit as the opening in the floor wasn’t huge. But we managed to meet the required 42 degree pitch with the headroom just at 2000mm.  A wall handrail matching the curved of the stingers was added after the stair was fitted.

Beech Open Staircase

The WF staircase is a bespoke timber stair with cantilevered treads.  The staircase only has a wall stringer, leaving the treads on the open side suspended in mid air!  These treads are suspended by steel spindles which span upto the custom made  handrail which takes the load.  This load is then transferred to the newels posts at the top and bottom of the flight.  It is probably the most open staircase we offer and is surprisingly economically priced when compared with other cantilevered style staircases.   The stair is available in virtually any hardwood and can be configured as a straight flight, quarter or half turn, depending on the wall location.
