  • Complex staircases are per-assembled in the factory, whoever is reassembling the staircase on site can help us pull it down for freighting so they have an excellent idea on reassembly on site.

 

DELIVERY

Generally the transport company will contact you the day before to advise on an AM or PM delivery. Modular staircases take between 2 & 4 weeks for delivery depending on the model and number of accessories ordered.
Our custom made staircases vary in how they are delivered depending on the size and weight of the model. The timber staircases are supplied on a pallet as are the majority of the bespoke steel models, but some larger stairs have to be delivered by a truck equipped with a hoist crane. All our custom made staircases take between 6-10 weeks to manufacture.

GETTING A QUOTATION

GETTING A QUOTATION

Obtaining a quotation (even a basic off the shelf staircase) needs some input from our sales team so you will need to get in touch by phone or email. The price of each staircase is based on the shape, width / diameter, the floor to floor height, materials used and finishes. Each model has a guide price listed which is based on the standard model options, heights and finishes. For an exact price we will need to know-

1. The staircase model of interest
2. The shape of the stair (spiral, straight flight, quarter turn or half turn)
3. The finished floor to floor height (even an approximate will suffice for estimating as each stair is priced per tread /riser)
4. The stair width or diameter
5. The location of any walls (so we can include stair balustrade in the right place)
6. The material options for the treads and balustrade. (i.e. type of timber for treads , spindles / glass panels for the balustrade)
7. The length of any landing balustrade required

If you have any drawings they will show many of these measurements so please forward by email / post. We accept them in JPG or PDF formats. If you don‘t have any drawings, a rough sketch would be helpful and if possible a photo of the stairwell area.

To help with this we have prepared this brief terminology guide.
