Stair Types

A staircase for every home

Choosing the right type of staircases for your home is essential for its function as well as its appearance. Gowling Stairs can help you to choose a staircase type that best meets your needs and matches the specifications of your home.

Closed stairs have a visible (or exposed) stringer that is usually painted or stained.

Cut stairs have a stringer that is laid in a ‘zig zag’ pattern with the treads exposed at either end.

Concealed stairs have a stringer that is hidden or concealed underneath the treads and risers, so that they butt up against the plaster.

Open stairs don’t have any risers; instead, they’re made of thicker string and tread material to provide strength.

Combination stairs allow you to combine elements from two types for a truly unique look.
