Luxury Timber Handrail for London Home

Haldane UK has added its unique finishing touch to the transformation of a luxury residential property, which was led by the multi-award-winning, London and Prague-based Interior Architecture and Interior Design studio misch_MISCH.

One of the highlights of the stunning three-storey mews in Battersea is the feature helical staircase. Haldane UK was responsible for bringing the creative process to life by manufacturing and installing a continuous 70 x 40 elliptical handrail in Sapele, which was to be French polished to achieve a piano black finish in keeping with the interior design.

The handrail incorporated over 9 linear metres of bespoke continuous handrail, which required millimetre accuracy to sit perfectly on the slender black metal spindles.

The staircase also features sections of flat, curved handrail and straight handrail, as well as 180 degree wreathed bends to achieve the flawless continuous finish.

Haldane Helical Handrails Shortlisted For Sustain Awards

Haldane UK has manufactured the helical handrails for this stunning helical staircase project in South Oxfordshire in conjunction with architectural joinery firm Gary Curnick Joinery which has been shortlisted in the Sustain magazine awards.

Curved Timber Handrail London

Haldane has added its distinctive touch of style and quality with the manufacture and installation of these stunning profiled curved timber handrails which adorn the three storeys in this luxurious London property.

Haldane UK worked closely throughout the project with the main developer, DOMVS, who have firmly established themselves as one of the UK’s leading specialist developers of prestigious luxury homes thanks to their commitment to creating beautiful homes with elegant interiors and facade.

Haldane specialist handrail team designed and created a bespoke handrail profile that reflected the grandeur of the property and manufactured the raking curve using their advanced 5 axis CNC technology.

Forrester Adam, Managing Director of Haldane UK, explained “Manufacturing a raked curved handrail is extremely difficult for most joinery firms and unless they have a 5 axis CNC machine, they would need to hand carve them.”

He continued, “But when you are faced with creating a raking curve with a profiled handrail you can really only achieve this with 5 axis technology or run the risk of the profile being compromised at certain areas.”

Elliptical Timber Handrails For Helical Stair

Haldane UK has manufactured and installed bespoke elliptical timber handrails measuring 70mm x 40mm which required two different profiles for a helical staircase in a luxury home.

Working closely with the owner of the property, who owns a major construction company, Haldane manufactured the handrail in American Black Walnut to complement the decorative metal balustrade.

All of Haldane UK’s 30 years’ experience in manufacturing and installing complex timber handrail projects was called upon to ensure the continuous handrail flowed seamlessly up the staircase.

The bespoke metalwork used a combination of box bar and diameter bar sections to achieve the design which meant a subtle change to the profile of the handrail as it rose through the staircase varying from an elliptical to more of an oval.

The project features 4 metres of spiral handrail plus an additional 4 metres of horizontal curve along the atrium area together with associated flat bends and transitions.

One of the key features of the staircase is the wreathed full drop ends to the ground floor and first floors to create a fantastic finish.

And to ensure the perfect finish, the client appointed Haldane UK’s expert installation team which delivered the project in a matter of days.
