Closed String Staircases
The closed string staircase, unlike the cut string Staircase, does not show the treads from the side. It can be made by using Softwood treads and Plywood or MDF risers for full carpeting and painting with either softwood or hardwood balustrade or a combination of both. Alternatively it can be manufactured completely in hardwood and to be polished with a finish of your choice. As with the Cut String Staircase, this type can be used for any design: straight, spiral, helical; as simple or as elaborate as required. For more examples of this type of staircase, please look in the helical section.
