The Dover Height Lower Flight is of closed rise, cut stringer construction.
Stringers and risers are constructed in Pine and painted to match the doors and skirting boards. Treads are of 280 x 42 mm Laminated Victorian Ash a durable and cost effective sustainable hardwood. The timber tread and painted stringer/riser appearance gives away a floating effect which when looking at the stair from the bottom of the stair there becomes a visual break between tile and tread.
The Balustrade is constructed of 90x40mm Victorian Ash. The timber screen balustrade begins fixed to the top of the treads and will follow through past the staircase above and finish as the level balustrade on level 3. A Wall rail has been added for a continuous hand hold as per NNC regulations and designed to match the screen.
The Cammeray Stair is of open rise, cut stringer construction. Stringers are constructed in 250 x 10mm Mild Steel powdercoated in a light grey to match the carpet on the mezzanine level. Treads are of 280 x 70mm Laminated Blue Gum a durable and dense hardwood to last years.
The double cut stringer ties in well with this up market house and blends in with the clean cut room. The Balustrade is constructed of 12mm frameless glass which helps the stair almost disappear in the background. The balustrade on the mezzanine level has been designed to allow guests to see up to the level to the majestic grand piano sitting by the edge.

Our focus of the staircase was the stained timber treads and handrail with all other timber components painted to match the tall skirting boards in the home. The Cut Stinger construction with traditional Scotia under each nosing showcased the solid timber treads, giving the floor an almost floating look as you moved between levels.
Again keeping with design 115mm Grand Newel posts were used with detailed post tops and beading as well as 65mm traditional timber handrail. To begin the staircase on each level the handrail was handmade so it could bend into the bottom post to finish level. This handmade detail of the balustrade gave it the elegance and prestige requested by our client.
This contemporary timber Monostringer staircase is constructed in Victorian Ash and utilizes a stainless steel semi-frameless glass balustrade.
The timber stringer was built using the latest construction methods and was handcrafted in our factory by our highly skilled staff. A full height mirror on the wall allows the room to seem much larger and is an effective way to promote the appearance of an open space. The client finished the staircase using a 2 part Synteko™ Natural oil that compliments the features in the timber.
The semi-frameless glass balustrade was constructed using Stainless Steel Posts and handrail with D-Patch fittings holding the 10mm toughened glass panels.
This staircase is an example of the high quality craftsmanship you can expect at OzStair.
The Araluen is an Closed Rise, Cut String Staircase using custom painted turned balusters and posts.This design incorporates a continuous S1 – Moulded Blackbutt Handrail complete with volutes and handcrafted bends in order to produce a continuous handhold throughout the entire staircase.
This staircase has been designed to incorporate frets and scotia two components that are rarely seen in modern staircases and are normally only displayed in heritage buildings.
With this heritage design in mind the staircase called for the use of recycled timber for the handrail and treads to provide the traditional finishing touches; these together with the volutes’ and turned balusters transform this staircase into a stunning example of the heritage style staircases that OzStair is known for in the industry.
