UK: Staircases: Staircase Manufacturers & Suppliers
The most common staircase is made from timber, and is straight or a winder (with one or more turns). Staircases can have matching wooden balustrades, with spindles of simple square design, or of traditional decorative turned design. Available woods include Oak, Beech, Ash, and Pine. Where space is very limited, ladder-like spacesaver staircases can be supplied; these are steep, and have alternating recesses in each stair tread. Another option is the spiral staircase. Spiral staircases can be supplied in kit form for assembly on site, with central column and treads of wood or metal. Leading UK suppliers of staircases are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
