Oak 41mm spindles are a great way to add some real quality to your staircase. The spindles are machined to a standard 41mm square and are sold in the most common 900mm and 1100mm lengths. Radiused edges are machined into the baluster to make them easier to finish and remove the issue of splintering.
900mm lengths are the most common and are the standard size for domestic staircases where the handrail must be installed a minimum of 900mm above the front edge of the tread. 1100mm spindles are used on open tread (cut string) stairs on the rear edge of the tread where a longer spindle is needed to maintain a 900mm handrail height.
These spindles are manufactured using a good quality grade of oak. To keep costs at a practical level we often manufacture these spindles using a 2 piece laminate which is carefully colour matched. This creates a quality spindle that is very stable and resistant to twisting at a practical cost.
The spindles are available in 41mm x 41mm square in 900mm and 1100mm lengths
Oak spindles are supplied machined to a smooth surface finish and supplied bare ready for you to prefinish on site.
When oak is machined you can sometimes get slight lifting of the grain in small areas, particlarly where the grain varies such as around knots. This can be easily sanded smooth prior to applying a finish and is normal for this timber.
We can prefinish your oak spindles in a traditional finish if you require or you can purchase the newels natural/unfinished.
Oak spindles will normally be delivered to you with a specialist parcel courier.
