MDF staircases offer an affordable and easy-care solution for all types of staircases.
We particularly recommend MDF for apartments as part of commercial or residential developments. MDF is hard-wearing and incredibly adaptable to suit all manner of finishes including carpet, timber and tiles. MDF is also easily painted in a choice of colours.
MDF is a medium-density fibreboard, engineered to be tough and dense. Manufactured with wood fibres, it is combined with wax and resin under high temperatures to form panels. It won’t shrink or warp like other materials.
In high traffic areas, MDF can withstand plenty of regular activity and at Flight Stairways, we guarantee your MDF staircase will last.
In fact, our MDF tread is almost twice as thick (25mm) than the usual staircase. The thicker the tread, the stronger the stair – ensuring your staircase endures heavy foot traffic: perfect for apartment living and a huge range of other uses.
Our MDF staircases are a highly adaptable material that can complement any design. Even as our most affordable option, MDF staircases will still draw the eye and create a strong feature in any room.
Standard sizing (straight or u-shaped) or custom-built to suit your design, Flight Stairways can provide a reliable staircase solution.
Flight Stairways offers staircases made entirely of timber as well as timber combined with stainless steel, glass or aluminium. Since 1985 we have been sourcing the world for the latest trends in materials, designs and construction to ensure that our products enhance their surroundings.
We provide a huge range of timber such as Victorian Ash, Blackbutt, Brush Box, Sydney Blue Gum, Grey Ironbark, Jarrah and Spotted Gum. Our staircases are available in modern or more traditional designs, in closed or open-tread styles.
To ensure our staircases meet your specified design, we provide a huge range of balustrades, posts and handrails. Whatever your preference, you can be assured of quality, value-for-money and on-time delivery.
Steel Back Spine Staircase
At Flight Stairways, we’ve taken the time to create beautiful products to complement your residential or commercial design. Whether you’re building an apartment, a commercial building or a home, our staircases are manufactured with the surrounding aesthetics and functionality in mind.
We offer a vast range of quality steel back-spine staircases to suit any project. The unique, modern and creative characteristics of steel back-spine staircases can help to enlarge an internal space and improve the flow of natural light. The distinctive combination of closed and open riser into one staircase, open rise back-spine with rod balustrade, or open rise back-spine with wire balustrade, are a great enhancement for your interior design.
Supply Only Staircase
Supply-only external staircases are made from 275mm x 45mm treaded pine. Pre-manufactured and flat-packed ready to assemble. We can supply both the stringers and treads or we can provide them to you separately. When you purchase the kit (stringers and treads) you will also get screws, glue and a driving bit. Of course, special orders can be designed and manufactured to your specifications and they are quick, easy and simple to install. We can also supply stainless wire swaged to any length required and a range of turnbuckles.
When do I need stainless steel wire balustrade?
Building regulations regarding the installation of balustrades or barriers specify that one level must be 1m or more above another. Additionally, a balustrade or barrier must be a minimum of 1000mm high and no gap may be large enough to allow a 125mm sphere to pass through. For balustrade wires, this means you need 10 wires plus a handrail, or 11 wires if there is no handrail. If the fall is more than 4m, you are not allowed to use horizontal wires.
What size and type of balustrade wire do I need?
The most commonly used wire size is 3mm. On larger commercial buildings, 4mm is sometimes used and on smaller domestic jobs, 2.5mm is a possible option. The standard wire construction is 1×19, this being a bundle of 19 wires. The grade we use is 316 marine grade. This higher grade is ideal for a harsh environment and stays shinier than grade 304 steel.
