The structure of this Corbellian staircase is fully clad with 20 mm solid timber on the top side of the stairs and to the outside of the glass with a matching veneer finish to the underside. Clients can choose from a wide variety of solid wood finishes.
The latest addition to the Signature Stairs family, the Corbellian stairs is an attention grabbing architectural feature in any home. The style is inspired by the Neolithic process of stacking flag-stones to form a self-supporting structure. Not to take from the feature of the structure the stairs is finished with our frameless glass balustrade.
Signature Stairs have built a reputation on delivering products that surpass our clients expectations. The above example of an American White Oak Corbellian staircase is a perfect example of how our stringent structural requirements and attention to detail produce a robust product that is a stunning feature in a home.
Given the structure is the main feature of this stairs our frameless glass balustrade is the ideal finish to compliment it. All the glass used in the Signature Stairs range is clear toughened glass which exceeds building and safety regulations. Typically the glass balustrade is finished with a matching rebated timber handrail which sits directly down onto the glass.
Even in its unfinished state the above staircase project is a perfect example of how the extension of the frameless glass balustrade onto the first floor area can further enhance your feature stairs. The stairs itself will be flooded with light while projecting a sense of space and openness on the first floor level.
Once our site engineers have completed their site survey, custom drawings of your stairs are produced. Both a 3-D model and detailed CAD drawings are produced for sign-off by your contractor or engineer and all potential fixing issues are solved at the drawing stage. Once finalised everyone is aware of exactly where everything fits and how they are to be finished. A schedule of installation can then be agreed.
This picture is a typical example of the staircase drawing produced for every product. Not only are the stairs included but also the immediate environment ensuring all parties involved are aware, well in advance, where the stairs will go and how best to finish around the gallery railings etc.
Each Corbellian staircase is clad with 20 mm solid timber of choice to the thread and risers and finished with a two pack polyurethane lacquer. If for any reason any the steps are damaged or require freshening up after a number of years they can be simply lightly sanded and refinished. Unlike other stairs suppliers we do not use laminate or engineered finishes which once scratched cannot be repaired.
High brushed stainless steel 'sleeve' handrail which sits directly over the glass balustrade. Subtle enough so not as to be visually obtrusive but practical in terms of keeping marks off the glass while meeting stairs regulations.
Added to the Signature Stairs range only recently the Corbellian staircase is an exquisite example of craftsmanship and engineering. The origins of this design can be found in the Neolithic construction method of stacking flag-stones to form a self supporting structure.
Given its ancient origins the Corbellian staircase represents an outstanding combination of old school craft and modern materials. The structures are designed to be as thin as possible while meeting our strict rules on deflection. Every Signature Stairs feels solid to walk on and the Corbellian is no different. Finished with a solid wood of choice this stairs will last generations.
The stair structure is the real feature of this stairs and our frameless glass balustrade is the perfect subtle complimenting finish. Again clients are free to choose from either matching timber handrails or stainless steel options.
