Staircases

The Challenger staircase is a popular choice for its contemporary styling and is often referred to as the Zig-Zag staircase. The steel strings are slim and subtle, cleverly designed with the treads fixed neatly between the strings.

  • Striking Zig-Zag design
  • No visible fixing element - gives the look of a seamless 'floating staircase'
  • Self-supporting design - no requirement for newel posts for a contemporary look
  • The design can suit individual run and rise requirements incorporating kites and winders

Challenger

If your looking for a modern feature staircase the Challenger is the perfect choice. This Zig Zag stair is an architectural masterpiece in any home. It is also a great choice of stair for commercial offices and retail environments.

This bespoke design can incorporate curves, kites and winders.

Two single flat steel strings are fixed either side of the treads. Strings can doubled up to sandwich a glass balustrade with hidden fixings. We laser cut steel for precision fabrication.

The steel strings can be twisted to create a double turn S shape staircase or a Helical staircase.

  • Striking Zig-Zag design
  • No visible fixing element - gives the look of a seamless 'floating staircase'
  • Self-supporting design - no requirement for newel posts for a contemporary look
  • The design can suit individual run and rise requirements incorporating kites and winders
  • Conforms to UK building regulations

Materials & Finishes

The strings can also be made from Stainless Steel, Galvanized Steel, Corten Steel and Oiled Steel. All the steel components are available in any colour and can offer a contrast to the chosen wooden treads.

Treads are made from a variety of hardwoods: Ash, Birch, Oak, Mahogany, Teak or Walnut. Natural woods are chosen for their strength and durability and can be stained or painted to any colour of your choice. We offer an extensive selection of stains and painted finishes which provide a durable finish, whilst still retaining the unique, natural properties of the wood. This staircase can also be specified to have treads in Steel, Tile, Concrete, Carpet, Vinyl, or Composite Decking.

Our standard thickness of wood treads are 40mm, we also offer thicker chunkier treads as an option. Open risers look superb on this staircase but we can offer closed risers if required. Treads are fixed between the strings on the top of lugs, if treads are over 60mm thickness these can be hidden with seamless covers and not visible from underneath the stair.

Glass balustrades are a popular choice with this style to emphasise the floating staircase effect and a contemporary look.Glass balustrades are fixed to the external side to the string with stainless steel button fixings; these buttons can also be painted in any RAL colour of your choice. As an option, for an invisible look with clean lines, the glass balustrades can be sandwiched between a double skinned string with concealed fixings.

Spindles, railings and tensioned wires are available to suit your design requirements. We can colour match to the steel string or timber treads.

Choose from a variety of handrail designs, in natural woods or steel to match or contrast with your treads and to add a finishing touch to your stair design.
