DESIGN & Installation
AWJ specialise in the design and installation of architectural and secondary metalwork including steel staircases.
Staircases are designed bespoke with early consideration given to the installation methods to best decide if the stairs are fabricated in welded units lifted in with a crane or bolt together stringers and treads where a crane cannot be used.
Consideration is given to programme requirements which may dictate the finishes such as if the stairs are required early in a project to provide site access, these can be primed to receive site decoration at a more suitable time. Or stairs can be finished with a spray applied paint finish , or powder coated.
Stringers are the supports for the treads, and these can be flat plate, channel , box section or circular tube underslung.
As we fabricate bespoke, the balustrades to stairs can be any design from vertical infill bars to glass or even solid metal plates with handrails attached.
Floor finishes we can offer chequer plate open steel, pan treads to receive screed and carpet and or timber along with bespoke laser cut patterns.
A. W. JEFFREYS (Southampton) Ltd. is a specialist trade contractor involved in the design, supply and installation of architectural and secondary metalwork including staircases. As you will see from the following showcase we are a bespoke fabricator with each design tailored to suit the Architects aspirations and the Client requirements. Some of these also incorporate glass and timber. Stairs can be fabricated in component form or welded units to best suit the site restrictions. A. W. JEFFREYS would be pleased to discuss any projects further with yourselves.
