Haldane UK has designed, manufactured and supplied a bespoke American white oak spiral staircase which rose through 2 flights for the refurbishment of a manse in Scotland.
Working with sketched drawings supplied by the client, Haldane developed a solution which enabled the spiral staircase to be virtually free standing from ground floor to second floor with only fixings to each of the landing sections.
The staircase featured 32mm solid oak treads measuring 1000mm, 170mm diameter solid oak spacer components and was designed to provide a 20mm clear space from the treads to the wall.
Haldane also manufactured and supplied 10.5 linear metres of 60x50mm elliptical spiral handrail which was fixed to the wall via brackets and finished with a bull nose end.
To ensure the project was delivered on time and in budget, Haldane worked closely with the architectural joinery contractor throughout, presenting CAD drawings, organising the required loading calculations and overseeing the installation.
Haldane UK’s Managing Director, Forrester Adam, said “We have worked on countless bespoke spiral staircase projects through the UK however this was the first of its kind which was freestanding through 2 storeys and manufactured from solid timber.”
He continued, “So whilst we tend to work with finished architectural drawings, we were able to combine our skills with the client’s vision and take the project from concept to conclusion.”
