Luxury Loft Ladder from Haldane UK

Haldane UK has manufactured a luxury loft ladder in American White Oak for a loft conversion project in Scotland.

Haldane was approached by the specialist interior designer to develop a solution for a loft conversion where there wasn’t room for a full staircase but the client wanted more than simply a standard loft ladder.

Working to a design brief supplied by the interior designer, Haldane manufactured the loft ladder which measured in at 3.4 metres in height with 500mm treads which were 180mm deep.

Staircase Refurbishment for Farmhouse

Haldane UK has transformed a traditional post to post stair by carrying out a complete staircase refurbishment using continuous American Black Walnut handrail and bespoke painted poplar spindles.

Haldane removed all of the newel posts to create a smooth flowing feel to the handrail which twists and turns to accommodate the tight winding nature of the stair well before finishing perfectly with a volute.

The existing treads and risers were clad with American Black Walnut and Haldane tied this in to the solid wooden floor.

Intastop Wall Protection Sheets for Care Homes

Haldane UK has enabled one of Scotland's largest care home groups to dramatically reduce their annual repair bill by supplying Intastop wall protection sheets in three of their facilities.

Damaged walls due to scrapes and collisions with trolleys, wheelchairs and other items is a constant issue for care homes with on-going costs that can run into thousands of pounds every year.

Intastop’s Wall Protection Sheets offer a cost effective solution for protecting walls and doors.

Full Length Door Hinge Dramatically Reduces Maintenance

Haldane UK has enabled a Scottish health board based to deliver significant savings in maintenance costs and delays due to repairs, by installing heavy duty Full Length Door Hinges from Instastop.

The health board recognised they were continually replacing doors in various hospitals in the area and saw Intastop’s full length hinges as the perfect solution.

Intastop Door Edge Guards for Hospital in Scotland

Doors in hospitals need to withstand a lot of punishment with a constant stream of trolleys and beds being pushed through which can cause considerable damage to the door edges and potentially reducing the fire rating.

The traditional solution to this damage is to replace the entire door which can cost thousands of pounds depending on the size and design of the door.

Intastop door guards supplied by Haldane dramatically reduces the costs by avoiding the need to replace the entire door but simply replacing the door edge.

Haldane Manufacture 1300mm Circular Timber Windows

Haldane has manufactured and supplied 32 large circular timber windows in oak for a major restoration project.

The windows were fully finished ready for the client to simply add the glazing and the ironmongery prior to installation.

Haldane Recreate Complex Timber Spindles for Staircase Refurbishment

Haldane has again demonstrated their ability to machine any commercially available timber in any shape by recreating several complex spindles for the refurbishment of a city centre property.

The project to return the property to its former glory faced an issue with several of the spindles on the original staircase needed to be replaced.

It was paramount that the replacement spindles matched the profile of the remaining ones exactly, otherwise they would look completely out of place.

Mashrabiya Screens

Haldane completed a major contract in the South of England which saw the company manufacture and supply a range of products including Mashrabiya screens, shoe racks, radiator cover, decorative corbels and timber panelling.

The contract required Haldane to call upon its full range of services from its 5 axis CNC machining through to moulding, wood turning and handcarving.

The Mashrabiya screens were constructed from thousands of delicate timber components which were individually turned using Haldane’s traditional wood turning expertise.

American Handrail Design

Haldane has once again demonstrated its ability to manufacture stunning handrails with its latest project which features profiled European White Oak handrails with an American Design.

Working in conjunction with the joinery company who were manufacturing the fantail staircase, Haldane were called upon to manufacture and supply the handrails with scrolled end, which swoops down in to a wreathed volute.

Haldane also pre-jointed the handrails before being dispatched to make the installation significantly quicker.
