Elegant metal staircase railing with handcarved oak handrail
Here we have an absolutely stunning natural stone, cantilever staircase over three floors. Smith and Garratt were looking for a simple but substantial balustrade to compliment this staircase.
Substantial Balustrade with oak handrail
This balustrade was part of a larger restoration project for an A-listed country house and was made up of 20mm square plain steel bars held together with a 30mm x 8mm core rail with M6 countersunk engineering screws. The base of the balusters were drilled and tapped to take an M10 stud for resin fixing into the treads.
The dramatic effect was enhanced further with a hand mixed bronze patina paint. The continuous hard wood handrail was hand carved forming a traditional handrail to compliment the historic nature of this country house.
This project as a whole was commended at RICS Awards Scotland 2013 (building conservation category).
The home owner said of the project “We want everyone who worked with such skill and craftsmanship to see the finished product, and for them and their families to feel proud of what they have achieved.”
