Oak Ash Pine Hemlock Sapele Southern Yellow Pine
American White is used exclusively in the UK for internal joinery, being kiln dried to approximately 10%. A strong, heavy hardwood grown in the Eastern half of the United States. Due to the high costs of large sections, newel posts and handrails are laminated, careful attention being paid to grain matching. European Oak is a close relative botanically to Quercus Robur and our English species is equally adaptable for internal stairparts.
American White. A quality American hardwood, Ash can be stained and polished to a very good finish.
Pine is a slow grown Scandinavian timber, an economical timber suitable for staining and painting. All knots in the timber are sound.
Hemlock is a straight-grained clear, knot free timber. It is especially attractive since it will varnish to a rich golden colour. Hemlock is of uniform density and will take stain easily with the minimum of colour distortion; it is easy to use and does not split or break whilst being worked, being less brittle and therefore stronger than many hardwoods.
Sapele is a West African hardwood, with a reddish brown colouring, typical of Sapele. This fairly close textured timber is harder and heavier than both American and South American Mahogany. As with any natural product, variation in colour is to be expected.
Southern Yellow Pine
Southern Yellow Pine has distinctive character in both colour and grain. Although generally clear, a limited number of small knots are permitted. Grown in the Southern United States, it enjoys the reputation of being exceptionally strong and has a high resistance to wear. Whilst relatively easy to work this wood is comparable to hardwood species such as Oak for strength.

Reducing Spindles are used where the stair meets the ceiling under a landing and can be made to measure in most patterns. Each successive spindle is usually 100mm shorter than the last.
Newels are designed to suit nearly every staircase configuration. Modular construction allows maximum flexibility and is especially useful where conversion or refurbishment work requires that existing newel bases be retained. Newel posts provide the basic strength and structural integrity for each stairway handrail system. All newels, caps and bases are available in halves for wall fitting. Newel posts from 83mm up to 120mm have a 50mm peg size.
The integral base means that the posts can be used both at the top and the bottom of the staircase. Additionally, the posts can be cut to fasten centrally with the first riser, or, with the second riser as with a bull-nosed step etc. Please note that for an additional charge, both head and base lengths of the above posts can be adjusted to customers own specifications.
Newel posts typical uses:
PST-1 Opening newel at the bottom of a staircase.
PST-2 Special situations where hand rails meet at different heights.
PST-3 Used on landings, especially where the horizontal landing rail meets an up coming sloping hand rail.
PST-4 Used on the inside corner of quarter landing where the staircase turns through 90 degrees.
PST-5 Used in conjunction with the TRADITIONAL range of continuous hand rail fittings.
PULPIT NEWEL This is a shortened PST-4 and might be required where an up coming hand rail meets the post below the turning, e.g. on the inside corner of a 90° winding turn.
