Creative External Staircases

External staircase design has always been limited by the lack of available attractive, versatile components. Traditional cast treads and decking plates are limited in the number of designs, range of sizes available and they tend to be expensive with long manufacture times.

Creative Castings has designed a staircase that is totally versatile in design, shape and size. We utilise standardised components, dedicated CAD drawing software and a super-fast laser cutting machine. Our staircases arrive ready to assemble – simply weld in the tread end plates and the two halves of the strings together.

Our staff have over 40 years’ experience in the design, manufacture and supply of bespoke staircases and we offer a components supply-only service or we can design and supply the complete staircase.

Staircase components are normally supplied in a 6mm or 8mm thickness. 10mm and 12mm thicknesses are also available.

Quatrefoil design treads and decking plates
All designs can be supplied in any size and shape. We also provide a bespoke design service to your own specifications.

Customer reviews

Our thanks to you, Tony and the team. It was far from a smooth journey, what with construction delays  and a global pandemic, but we absolutely love our staircase. I honestly don’t think anything could have looked better and we got there in the end.

Really appreciated your attention to detail over the end caps… they are spot on with the slimmer one you cut.

Eileen & Mark, mid Norfolk

Many thanks to the team at Creative Castings for helping us with the design, production and installation of our fantastic showpiece staircase. Our architect had sketched out a design for a modern, steel staircase with glass balustrading and open risers, intended to make the hallway feel bright and open. The problem was, when I tried to source this elsewhere the cost was astronomical. We thought we were going to have to settle for a normal staircase, until Barry and the team came to the rescue. Their service was great, from agreeing the design and estimating costs to measuring up, keeping us posted on production, through to installation. The staircase is great, it’s the standout feature of the house – the cut stringer creates a really striking look. Thanks again to Creative Castings, I would certainly recommend them to anyone else.

David, Bushey, Herts

The service we received from UK Creative Castings was second to none. As a self builder, the design of the house and staircase kept changing, including the size and height of the stairwell; Barry and his team were adept at amending the design to suit and then constructing a steel, wood and glass staircase that is just amazing. Everyone who visits the house is struck by the beauty of it, as are we.

Andy, France

I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all the hard work that has gone into getting the stairs installed. It’s been quite some project!

The guys worked extremely hard and the results are stunning.

Richard Hossack

Our experience of buying our new staircase from Creative Castings was excellent from start to finish.  Barry and his team accommodated our building schedule, the design was perfect and the installation team were meticulous.  The resulting staircase is just as I imagined – a stunning centrepiece to our new home and a high quality finish for a great price.

Caroline & Richard, Old Winsor

We would like to say the stairs look great and really do compliment the look and feel we wanted for the family home. Transferring a 100 year old cottage into the 21st century whilst still keeping that 100 year old charm.

The engineers who did the install were professional and considerate, and I would highly recommend them again for anyone having their stairs installed. It’s great having a product which used different UK companies to build my staircase.

Joe and Family

The stairs very much lived up to my expectations, they look gorgeous. Very, very happy! As my partners Mum said, “a proper Grand Design staircase”.

Whilst this is my first dealing with you and your team I do believe I would be using you in the future, I also have a close relationship with my Architect and will be passing on your details to him if he has any clients looking for this kind of service. I would whole heartedly recommend you and your company to any prospective customer/client. It’s been a pleasure and I look forward to doing business in the future.

Guy, Bristol

The stairs are the first thing anyone sees when entering our house. Not one person has entered without saying WOW!

Stairs are complicated things and need patience and understanding. Creative Castings will take the time and care to ensure you get the stairs just right.

Madeleine, Portsmouth

Thank you so much to the team at UK Creative Castings who made our staircase for our recent renovation. They dealt with a very difficult project for us for our internal curved staircase, and we are delighted with the result. Their persistence and help with such a tricky project was invaluable and we are incredibly happy with our completed unique design. Thank you so much once again.

Georgia, Kent

I love the staircase, it’s chic, unique style and looks amazing! I have found the service to be professional, communication was easy and turnaround was per the agreement.

Alida, Guildford

Until we contacted UK Creative Castings, we thought our dream of an all glass cantilevered staircase had ended. Without so much as a site survey, their designers forwarded 3D renders for our approval, our minor design detail preferences were integrated into the most spectacular of all glass cantilevered staircases.

The skilled site fitters made installation look so easy, completing in two days including the 600 mile return journey. One fitter even retuned to replace one piece of handrail. Thanks to the whole team for a faultless project, very impressed.

Ian, Carmarthen Wales

The stairs look great. Every time I look at them I gaze in wonder.


Super happy with the staircase it looks amazing and really happy with Tony’s fitting and expertise. Thanks again!
