We are able to provide a wide variety of feature timber tread staircase designs ranging from specialist bespoke floating cantilever, both straight and helical, folded tread and rise zig zag designs, spine and inset stringer designs through to traditional plate steel stringer staircases. The majority of our timber tread staircases feature structural glass panels as balustrade but we are also able to offer stainless steel uprights with glass infill panels. Should a handrail be required this can either take the form of slotted stainless or hardwood.
With our feature timber staircases we are able to incorporate glass landings and walkways to enhance the design.

Open rise feature staircase based on powder coated PFC channel stringers supporting open rise hardwood box treads. The stringers featured an oak infill section and the balustrade to the staircase and upper level consisted of mild steel box section uprights supporting a shaped mild steel handrail with circular section mild steel mid rail running beneath, all powder coated to a matt black finish.
The design incorporated hidden supports thereby eliminating the need for supporting newel posts in the corners and allowing the upper and lower mid landings to apparently float un-supported.

Elegant light oak floating cantilever staircase with joinery winder plinth at the base.
Our cantilever support system is secretly fixed floor to floor, independent of any wall support.

Beautiful floating tread cantilever staircase with Ash treads, toughened glass balustrade and a ‘U’ shaped slim profile anodized aluminium handrail mounted on top of the glass.
The treads themselves include our trademark discreet aluminium nosing along the leading edge and are recessed at the wall end to create a neat shadow gap detail.
Matching end cover caps complete the look.
We also designed and installed matching glass balustrade, set in an aluminium side fixed channel to both sides of the 10m walkway, with the channel finished with a sleek stainless steel cover fascia.
Exquisite central spine staircase with beautiful black powder coated central spine complimented by contemporary black stained oak treads.
The treads include our discreet aluminium nosing to the leading edge and incorporate LEDs to bring the stair to life.
A feature of this staircase is the way the treads wrap around the central spine with no visible fixing; almost resting on the spine itself.
One piece laminated glass panels are fixed to both sides with the fixings hidden behind matching black stained oak cover caps.
Our latest feat of design is this amazing, light staircase which uses a single piece of structural glass as the support for the treads.
The white mild steel stringer disappears against the white painted walls, leaving the treads to extend and be supported by the large structural glass panel on the end. This panel rests on the floor and extends up to form the balustrade to the staircase.
The treads, separated by a full glass riser, are stained oak, designed to be as thin as possible and colour matched to the parquet floor.
LED strips are fitted into the leading edge of the treads and also into the nosing at upper floor level.
First floor glass guardrail continues around the opening, with an elegant satin polished stainless steel fascia completing the look.
