Open Split String Staircase

This stair in a Patterson Lakes home is an open split string style in Tasmanian Oak. The treads are oversized to eliminate the need for riser reduces. This open cantilever stair adds a design element to this entry. Solid fixing points were required at the top the bottom of the staircase. The client opted to have treads with vertical laminations of Tasmanian Oak, to add an element of feature to the treads themselves. The Flight balustrading is manufactured with stainless steel vertical balusters that span from the tread up to the rake of the ceiling. The level balustrade is

insert glass, using a base shoe that was installed prior the timber flooring to support the glass. The base shoe has been faced with Tasmanian Oak. The glass has been capped with an ex 50x38mm timber rail. A “L” Lean profile wall rail has been used, which fits directly to the wall, eliminating the need for brackets and therefore increasing the available width of the stair flight.
