Summary

Pine Spindles are supplied 895mm long only

Oak Spindles are Supplied 895mm and 1100mm

895mm Spindles are used on domestic staircases and landing areas where building control require a handrail height of 900mm

Fitting Georgian 32mm Stair Spindles 

Use the following formula to calculate the number of 32mm spindles required

Straight Horizontal Landing – Measure the length of the rail between posts in mm and divide by 112 and round up to the nearest whole number

Staircase – Count the number of steps between newel posts and x 2 then deduct 1 spindle wherever there is a newel post

Newel Posts are fitted first followed by base rails and handrails.

When fitting spindles to your stair case you must first find the angle of the stairs, this can be achieved using a sliding bevel or angle finder.

Cut your spindles top and bottom to the right angle and length. Try each spindle between the hand and base rail sliding it from the bottom of the staircase to the top. This will ensure any rail run-out will be allowed for.

Once all your spindles are cut you will need to cut your spindle spacers from the fillet strip provided in our rails. This is cut at the same angle as the stairs making sure that the spindles are spaced no more 99mm apart.

Start at the bottom of the staircase and insert the first spacer followed by a spindle. We suggest dry fitting all your spindles and spacers before fixing into place then bed all spindles and spindle spacers on PVA wood adhesive. We recommend pinning the spindles in place, panel pins should be inserted below the level of the spindle spacer so the spacer will hide the head of the panel pin. 

Counter sink any panel pin heads showing on the spindle spacer into the timber and fill with a matching wood filler

Follow the same procedure for the landing spindles 

Staircase Building Regulations 

Handrail heights on the staircase are measured from the front bullnose of a step to the top of the handrail.

Spindles must not allow a sphere 100mm in diameter to pass between two spindles 

If you are unsure please contact us or your building inspector for new builds
