Staircases vary greatly in their size, layout and design and this is why all Abbott-Wade staircases are bespoke; built to each customers specifications to meet the needs of the individual home and fitted with precision craftsmanship. However, some staircases are a little more bespoke than others!
There are all sorts of different staircase designs; straight staircases, stairs with a winder or comprising a half or quarter landing. With so many stair designs available, perhaps the style requiring the most expertise is the helical staircase. Not to be confused with a spiral staircase, a helical staircase is a curved staircase requiring custom curved staircase components.
Transforming existing helical stairs requires precision measurements to ensure the helical rails run perfectly with the existing curved stairway. Clearly no ‘off-the-shelf’ rails are suitable and a miscalculation of just a few millimetres can be disastrous! With such a challenge it makes sense to contact an expert staircase company with over 20 years of experience. Abbott-Wade’s detailed 3D digital survey allows our design team to build up an accurate 3D CAD model to allow the precision manufacture of custom helical rails.
