Haldane UK has played a key part in the delivering this stunning feature helical stair by manufacturing and installing these American Black Walnut handrails to sit atop curved glass balustrades.
The project was carried out in conjunction with Clifford Chapman who were the specialist staircase contractor and completed the structural steelwork and glass balustrading.
The continuous handrail spirals up to the main atrium area which itself is a stunning feature of the double height entrance area of the luxury home in England.
Haldane carried out a full digital survey of the balustrade before manufacturing the 80mm x 50mm elliptical handrail together with the timber capping.
Haldane UK’s Managing Director, Forrester Adam, explained “Our digital survey technology allows us to pick up any minor flaws or issues caused by on site conditions and manufacture them out off-site to minimise installation times and costs.”

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.
Haldane worked closely with Gary Curnick Joinery throughout the project, manufacturing the bespoke timber balustrade and the sweeping continuous handrail, all supplied in European Oak with a lime finish.
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.”

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.
