Your staircase is often the focal point for anyone who enters your buildings and a reflection of your personal style. We fabricate and fit staircases to any design and any material ranging from small and large fire escapes to helical and spiral stairs, for both interior and exterior locations. We have a vast knowledge of staircases, from the initial site visit to the finished article we will keep you informed and updated and work with the various trades involved to deliver the job to extremely high standards and in the correct time frame.
Below are examples of the various staircases, but please take a moment to view our Staircase Portfolio Pages where our full range of works can be viewed in more detail.
Despite its simplicity, it is convenient and functional. It is easy to go up and down it, as also to carry things on the next floor. But the presence of one long flight makes this type of staircases limited in height. The usage of staircases with straight flight is feasible only in those cases when we need to join two levels connected by imaginary straight line.
Quarter Landing Stairs represent a variety of straight stairs, which also include a landing. But here the landing is needed to change a direction of the flight by 90 degrees and at the same time it serves as a place for rest when moving. The landing may change its position in the flight from its beginning and up to its end. Staircases of this type are more convenient and safe than straight staircases. Due to the presence of the landing the flight is divided into two, thereby reducing quantity of treads in one flight.
Half Landing Stairs are also a variety of staircases with straight flights. Just like Quarter Landing Stairs they also have a landing, but here it changes a direction of the flight by 180 degrees already and also serves as a place for rest when moving. The landing divides the staircase into two, thereby reducing quantity of treads in one flight. Half Landing Staircases are very convenient, functional, and safe.
Stairs of this type have stair flight resembling a circle or a part of it in its shape. Here just like in Winder Stairs and Arched Stairs the treads are wedge-shaped, but all of them (except for the last one) are uniform-sized. Spiral stairs have a central vertical post constituting the backup abutment for all treads in the flight. Due to their spiral shape such staircases look very effective.
Single Winder Stairs are stairs with a turn by 90 degrees. Winder treads may change their position in the flight from its beginning and up to its end. However, it is worth mentioning that the staircases with winder treads located at the beginning of the flight are more convenient than those with winder treads located at the end of the flight. This is because of winder treads located at the beginning of the flight are well within view from below.
Double Winder Stairs are stairs with a turn by 180 degrees. They are more compact than Single Winder Stairs. In this type of staircases we can distinguish two varieties: smoother passage of winder treads from turn to turn, and more abrupt passage. Stairs with smoother passage are more convenient but they occupy more space.
We have our own trained banks men, forklift drivers and carry IPAF certs for cherry pickers and scissor lift operators. All operatives carry up to date CSCS cards and are trained in all aspects of site fitting. We have our own genie lifts and a good working relationship with a local crane company to ensure all steelwork is delivered safely and securely.

Metal finishing is used to treat the exterior of a metal product by applying a thin complementary layer to its surface. There are numerous types of metal finishing processes that can be used for a variety of purposes that can we supply at Weldtec.
We have our own polishing department and are able to polish stainless steel inside our factory prior to delivery, as well as on site to a very high standard in both satin and mirror finishes.

Powder coating applies a decorative finish that is similar to paint, but with greater durability. Powder coating is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form and is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. A textured powder-coating machine is also highly effective in removing surface defects.
Galvanised steel is steel that has been coated with zinc in order to prevent rusting / corrosion. Sometimes the galvanising process is referred to as hot dip galvanising. The zinc forms a barrier against corrosion in that the steel underneath does not come into contact with water / moisture in the air. The hot dipping process applies quite a think layer of zinc to the steel by passing the steel through a molten bath of zinc. The temperature of the zinc is usually in the region of 460 degrees centigrade. The zinc forms a bond with the steel by forming an iron-zinc alloy. The zinc also forms a zinc oxide when it comes in contact with the air which also helps prevent corrosion.
Hot Zinc Spraying is an alternative to the hot dipped galvanizing process. Like galvanizing, Thermal Sprayed Zinc also provides a cathodic protection system and is replacing hot dipped galvanizing in many applications for reasons of effectiveness and cost. Thermal spray coatings are widely used in preventing corrosion of many materials. This method is usually used to protect Iron. This process is easily adapted to production environments and is especially suited to complicated surfaces found in grooved couplings and fittings.
Paint is the most commonly used material to protect steel. Paint systems for steel structures have developed over the years to comply with industrial environmental legislation and in response to demands from bridge and building owners for improved durability performance. Previous five and six coat systems have been replaced by typically three coat alternatives, and the latest formulations have focussed on application in even fewer numbers of coats, but with increasing individual film thickness.
Polishing is often used to enhance the looks of an item, prevent contamination of instruments, remove oxidation, create a reflective surface, or prevent corrosion in pipes. Both grinding and polishing involve the deliberate removal of metal from the surface using an abrasive. The resulting surface will have some directional marks, partially dependent on the grit size of abrasive used.
