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 timber handrail 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.
