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