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.
Haldane UK has manufactured and supplied its luxury timber handrails for the stunning Edinburgh home of one of award winning architect, Lorn Macneal.
The project required Haldane UK to manufacture over 28 linear metres of 45mm circular handrail manufactured from FSC accredited European Oak.
Haldane UK’s expertise in 3 dimensional CNC machining was demonstrated by manufacturing the bends and complex transitions on solid pieces to achieve a truly continuous handrail to befit the contemporary interior design.
To ensure the handrail sat perfectly atop the structural glass balustrading, Haldane precision manufactured a 20mm x 15mm rebate to all pieces, including the ramps, bends and precision.
Initially a little unsure about the costs of opting for switching from the traditional straights and mitres approach, Lorn was delighted with the final outcome, commenting:
“I bit the bullet and went for it rather than using sawn mitres joints. Thank goodness my impulses towards thrift were quelled as the result is brilliant. Thank you so much”
Haldane UK’s Managing Director, Forrester Adam, explained “Whilst we tend to be associated with complex handrail profiles and components, our expertise in delivering continuous diameter handrail is unrivalled and cost effective.”
The finished project speaks for itself and demonstrates the true impact of continuous handrails.

Haldane has played a key role in the transformation of a barn conversion by manufacturing and installing European Oak Handrail to 3 stairs including the main feature staircase of the conservation project.
The project saw Haldane manufacture and install over 35 linear metres of 60mm diameter handrails in European Oak plus associated transitions, goosenecks and ramps to create a stunning example of continuous handrail.
Working with the specialist conservation architect, Haldane also recommended changing the drop ends to rams horns to deliver a finished handrail that met the overall look of the project.
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 UK has completed the manufacture and installation of the oak handrail to the staircase as part of the refurbishment of the Prince’s Tower at Stirling Castle.
The 55mm diameter handrail was manufactured from American White Oak and rebated to sit proudly on the structural glazed balustrades to create an impressive entrance into the new exhibition area.
The project involved straight handrails, horizontal curve and spiral handrails which were then mitred and French polished on site to Haldane UK’s superior standard.
Haldane UK’s Managing Director, Forrester Adam, explained “We were delighted to secure this contract and add Stirling Castle to our growing portfolio of historic buildings.”
He continued, “Unlike many refurbishment projects, the aim was to create a contemporary feel whilst on a very tight budget. By using diameter profiled handrail that was mitred as opposed to having continuous transitions, we were able to deliver a cost-effective solution without compromising on quality.”

Haldane UK has added a touch of grandeur to a luxury Essex home with the completion of this superb fantail European Oak staircase featuring 70mm bespoke spindles and a profiled handrail measuring 100 x 75mm.
Working in conjunction with Gary Curnick Joinery, Haldane UK manufactured the spindles, newel posts and profiled handrails to create the fabulous feature staircase and balcony area.
Haldane created a bespoke spindle based on a sketch provided by the client and these were complemented with matching 150mm newel posts.
Haldane UK’s Managing Director, “We are seeing a growing number of enquiries from clients who are opting for a chunkier design to their stair components and we are now manufacturing ex 75mm spindles on a much more regular basis.”
He continued, “As we manufacture all our spindles on a traditional lathe, operated by highly skilled craftsmen, we can easily accommodate these larger profiles and bespoke designs. In fact, we receive a large number of enquiries from people who want new spindles to match an existing design – for a replacement or to restore the staircase to its formal grandeur.”
Haldane UK has manufactured and installed this bespoke handrail for a staircase refurbishment in a luxury London property.
Manufactured from FSC® accredited European Oak, Haldane created the bespoke 50 x 58mm profile which was designed to sit on a metal core rail.
To ensure a perfect fit and reduce installation times, Haldane carried out a full 3D digital survey of the core rail to provide an exact profile of the metal balustrade, including any slight twists or issues that otherwise would not be picked up.
Haldane worked closely with the architectural metalworker to achieve the perfect finish using its expertise to manufacture a range of handrail components including ramps, 90 degree bends and open cap ends.
The staircase design featured a number of complex components including two 180 degree raking to raking wreaths and a unique S-Bend which fits flawlessly into the handrail.
