The trend to build more townhouses and increasing numbers of apartments that require winder stair flights has lead to the development of an improved demountable balustrade system from JELD-WEN.

The system enables housebuilders to differentiate their properties and provide greater convenience to buyers when moving large items of furniture into the home.

Tony Pell, product manager at JELD-WEN explains: “This is an added value product that can be an important selling point in a home. Winder flights are becoming more popular and this innovative solution is designed to increase customer satisfaction. As many new homes have the main living areas above ground level, we believe this product will provide a convenient solution to end customers.”

The demountable staircase balustrade is easy for homebuyers to use and JELD-WEN provides step by step instructions that give all the necessary information relating to removing and reassembling the balustrade.

JELD-WEN manufactures a wide range of contemporary and more traditional timber staircases that are available with demountable balustrades, which are available as stock flights or bespoke designs.

As part of its commitment to housebuilders, JELD-WEN provides a free on-site survey and measuring service, helping developers to meet the requirements of Building Regulations. All stairs are also tested to ensure they meet all relevant British Standards and JELD-WEN’s stair specialists provide a dedicated service for all developer’s requirements.

Available with pre-finishing, three coat part finishing and pre-assembled options, JELD-WEN stairs are quick and easy to fit on site and are available in a wide choice of timber from softwoods through to top end Oak.

Tony Pell, product manager for JELD-WEN, explains: “Bespoke timber stairs are becoming more popular for both domestic and commercial builders. Timber stairs have a natural beauty as well as offering sustainable benefits and we offer full Chain of Custody certification. We are looking forward to demonstrating the benefits of this new system to housebuilders across the UK.”
