Haldane UK has demonstrated its increased capacity for manufacturing and installing bespoke timber handrails by enabling a key client to have their project manufactured and installed in just 1 week to meet an urgent handover date.
Our client had found themselves in a difficult position with the handrails package being overlooked by the main contractor on the luxurious London property and was facing liquidated damages if the deadlines were not met.
Haldane’s contract handrail team worked closely with the client to use a combination of construction drawings and traditional templating to provide the necessary information to enable the handrail to be programmed and manufactured.
The bespoke profile handrail measured 45mm x 32mm with a 9mm rebate, with 23 linear metres of straight handrail and 5 metres of horizontal curved handrail with 17 bespoke components consisting of various ramps and transitions all manufactured in European Oak.
After receiving the order on the Wednesday, Haldane UK’s team had started machining the timber within 36 hours and were on site by the following Tuesday with handrail all shop-stained prior to despatch to begin installation.
Haldane UK’s Managing Director, Forrester Adam, explained: “In addition to investing in an additional 2 new 5 axis CNC machines, we have completely redesigned the process from initial enquiry to final supply and install to streamline every operation.”
He continued, “Whilst we quote a standard lead time of 3 to 4 weeks from sign off of information, the new process and additional equipment enable us to help key clients, should the situation arise.”
