We love the informal simplicity of Instagram, the online community of over 5,000,000 visual storytellers, but it’s not all teenage girls taking photographs of their lunches. Search the hashtags and you’ll find lots of photos of #homeimprovement, #architecture and even #staircases.

You can follow Abbott-Wade to see not only the glossy photos from our online gallery but also (in this modern world of camera smartphones) some real-time photographs taken by our installations teams and other things of interest to us and hopefully you.

New Flights: Meeting regulations & surpassing expectations

Half Landing with chamfered spindlesWe have 20 years experience installing new staircases and it’s important to make sure that whoever you choose to install your staircase knows exactly what they’re doing.

From making sure that the steepness of the stairs (as dictated by the rise and going), complies with Section K1 of the building regulations to constructing balustrades using quality materials, we’re always one step ahead when it comes to ensuring your safety. We also know how to ensure that limitations imposed by the regulations do not need to compromise the design and aesthetics of your staircase.
