Townsend Staircase in the workshop -
On this staircase the riser downstands have been set flush to the front edge of the treads to give the treads the appearance of being around 90mm thick (This vairies depending on the rise of the staircase). Also all the edge radiuses used are far smaller than those used on our standard Openplan staircases this helps with keeping the contemporary feel the staircase is designed to achive.

The bottom step is a Square off Double sided curtail step.
Original Townsend Tread detail
The Tread was 40mm thick with a flush downstand at the front of the tread - this gave the effect of a thick stair tread from the front of the staircase. The Townsend Staircase has now evolved....
This picture shows you under the winder section of the staircase.
We assemble all our staircases in the workshop to ensure the quality of our staircases and this saves time for the fitters on site.

The 150mm Newel posts are one of the details that set this staircase apart from a typical specification oak staircase, the 150mm posts do count for a large part of the increased cost of this staircase over the standard oak openplan staircases.
