Haldane UK has showcased its market-leading expertise in manufacturing bespoke handrail components to transform a staircase with its latest project, which features a stunning drop end to add the wow factor.
The supply-only project saw Haldane UK work closely with one of Scotland’s leading specialist joinery companies, who had manufactured the staircase and balustrades but were looking for absolute precision when it came to the timber handrail.
The client was looking to avoid using a newel post at the foot of the stair and had designed an alternative approach where the handrail turns slightly and then drops to the floor, creating a real feature to the straight flight of stairs.
Haldane used its 5-axis CNC expertise to machine the elliptical handrail, which flows perfectly through the landing and down the staircase with a wreath drop end to finish.
The European Oak handrail was pre-drilled by Haldane UK to accommodate 32mm diameter spindles and dry jointed prior to despatch to make the installation as quick and as simple as possible.
Haldane UK was also asked to manufacture and supply the complementary base rail with pre-drilled holes along with the corresponding 90-degree flat bends.

This provides a high resolution 3D digital representation, enabling the Haldane UK design team to understand all the slight imperfections that come with historic balustrades.
With their expertise in CNC timber machining, Haldane UK ensured the finished handrail “smoothed” any small bumps, lumps and blemishes in the metalwork for an absolutely flawless finish.

These were then completed perfectly with a Farrow and Ball finish to create the stunning look of luxury.
Commenting on the project, the interior designer, Caroline Windsor on Windsor 29, commented, “Haldane was very prompt and professional. The whole process was very straightforward and easy, from the initial enquiry to arranging for the surveyor to come out and measure, and the new bespoke handrail arrived on site a few weeks later.
It was installed easily, fitting perfectly and transformed the old staircase to look better than ever before. I am delighted with the look and quality of the end result and would not hesitate to use you again on any future projects.”
