The Challenger staircase is a popular choice for its contemporary styling and is often referred to as the Zig Zag staircase. The 10mm steel strings are slim and subtle, cleverly designed with the treads fixed neatly between the strings.
This bespoke design can incorporate curves, kites and winders. The plates of the strings can be painted in any RAL colour - a stylish feature which can really enhance its interior surroundings.
Treads are made from either Oak or Ash as standard, both hardwoods are chosen for their strength and durability. We also offer other timbers such as Walnut or Mahogany, or alternatively, the timbers can be stained, varnished, oiled or painted to any colour of your choice. Treads are 40mmm depth as standard, thicker treads and step nose treads are available as options.
Closed risers can also be incorporated into the design as an option.
Frameless glass or glass with a timber or stainless steel handrail are the most popular balustrade choices. These create a dramatic look which is aesthetically pleasing and will enhance any room. Glass balustrades are fixed to the external side to the string with attractive stainless steel buttons for a modern look as standard. As an option, for an invisible look with clean lines, the glass balustrades can be sandwiched between a double skinned stringer with concealed fixings.
Frameless glass, or a stainless steel or timber handrail is fixed to the top of the glass balustrade, as standard. For a more enclosed feel, stainless steel or wooden posts, tensioned wires or vertical spindles are popular design options.
Precision engineered as a self supporting structure, there is no requirement for newel posts, giving the illusion of a floating staircase. This stunning design with zig zag strings makes this staircase an extraordinary feature and eye-catching centrepiece for any room or hallway.
The Challenger staircase has been shortlisted for this years ‘Best Joinery Product’ at the prestigious Build It Awards 2019.
