Luxury Loft Ladder from Haldane UK

Staircase Refurbishment for Farmhouse

Haldane UK has transformed a traditional post to post stair by carrying out a complete staircase refurbishment using continuous American Black Walnut handrail and bespoke painted poplar spindles.

The existing treads and risers were clad with American Black Walnut and Haldane tied this in to the solid wooden floor.

Intastop Door Edge Guards for Hospital in Scotland

Doors in hospitals need to withstand a lot of punishment with a constant stream of trolleys and beds being pushed through which can cause considerable damage to the door edges and potentially reducing the fire rating.
