Aesthetics and safety
Although the primary purpose of a banister is safety, this does not mean it cannot also satisfy the highest aesthetic requirements. Thanks to our experience and innovation, we can ensure that the banister suits both your personal style and the standards regarding the height and size of the openings.
Also for the youngest
When the house is full of young children, the staircase quickly becomes dangerous terrain. This is why we also offer stair safety gates that block access to the stairs. To keep the safety gates from spoiling the appearance, we make them in a matching style that seamlessly supplements the existing banister and gives the staircase a refined appearance.
A wooden banister creates the right ambiance for all who value a touch of nature and homeliness. There are virtually no limits in terms of the available shapes and dimensions of handrails. Balusters in modern homes are usually square or round, while fans of the rustic style will appreciate turned balusters.
For fans of the industrial or rustic style, metal details are an indispensable part of the interior. Banisters can be made from stainless steel, cable or iron for a more modern style or from forged iron or brass when looking for a touch of history. A combination of metal and wood is a common choice that adds a touch of warmth: the handrail is wooden, while the balusters or panels are made from a metal of your choice.
A glass banister draws clean, minimalist lines. Although it is more difficult to maintain, it lets through the greatest amount of light and is the most inconspicuous of all the materials. Wooden handrails are a popular choice for a safe and elegant grip, while the glass is securely attached to the stairs using special fixtures or metal profiles.
Self-supporting staircases offer excellent utilisation of space and bring a touch of modernity to your home. You can choose from a variety of designs, while wood and metal are the most popular among the materials.
Most commonly used types of wood
We use both domestic and foreign types of wood for stairs.
When making the choice, we always consider the materials and style of the nearby furniture and floors, and to a large extent our decision is also based on the expected frequency of use of the staircase.
The most commonly chosen types of wood include oak, beech, cherry, maple, ash and walnut, which we source as much as possible from the domestic market.
Good to know
What else is important for the long durability of stairs?
Appropriate indoor climate is an essential condition for the long durability of wooden stairs.
Stairs made from solid wood do best in conditions that are generally recommended for living spaces: relative humidity of 45–60% and air temperatures of 20–23 degrees Celsius. When humidity is too low or too high, cracks and other deformations appear in the wood due to shrinkage and expansion.
How to properly care for wooden stairs?
To maintain the protective layer of the varnish or oiled surface, use the care products intended for this purpose.
In cases of greater wear of the varnish or oil, the surface must be restored by re-applying the surface protection material.
What is the right way to clean wooden stairs?
It is especially important that any sand and other small particles are regularly removed from the stairs, as they will damage their protective layer and the wood. Any liquid spills must also be wiped off from the stairs immediately.
For dry cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush or a duster so as not to damage the protective layer on the surface of the stairs.
If wet cleaning is required, wipe the stairs with a soft damp cloth that is still dry enough to not leave any wet marks behind. You can also use a mild detergent that is suitable for wooden surfaces.
Steam cleaning of varnished and stained surfaces is not recommended, as it would damage the protective layer.
