Metal Spindles

One of the most popular ranges we have in stock is our Trademark Metal Spindles, which can be used on either cut or closed string staircases.

Our best-selling metal spindle designs are the Beaufort, Madison and Charleston styles.


Black coated metal spindles with a simple three-turn centre twist, which attracts the eye without overpowering the surrounding architecture. Beaufort metal spindles are named for the historic district of Beaufort, in the US state of South Carolina. This simple yet elegant design draws on the aesthetic of antebellum (pre-Civil War) American architecture, a period of décor influenced by classical styles introduced to the US by European settlers.                   


The madison spindle design is similar to that of the Beaufort spindle, simply replacing the central three-turn twist with a pair of two-turn twists at the top and bottom of the shaft. They look particularly effective when used in combination with Beaufort spindles (as in the picture above).

CHARLESTON SPINDLES                 

The charleston balusters are distinguished by a low-profile, four-turn twist on the top and bottom sections of each baluster. Named for another historic district of South Carolina, these spindles are also influenced by antebellum aesthetics and, in turn, by the neo-classical architecture that influenced them.


At Pear Stairs, we encourage our customers to try mixing and matching the different styles of spindle available, whether metal or wood – using two styles alternately can offer real visual interest and texture to your staircase. Metal spindles lend themselves particularly well to the ‘mix and match’ style of the balustrade. This is largely due to the range of designs available, from highly decorative styles such as the Edisto metal spindle to the toned-down style of the Madison spindle, which have been used alternately in the picture opposite. By contrasting a highly decorative spindle with a less extravagant style, you can ensure a balanced balustrade that won’t overwhelm the surrounding architecture.                    

You can also try mixing wooden spindle styles. This is especially effective when the spindles used incorporate different textures, such as the turned and twisted spindles which have been used alternately in the picture opposite. Because the different forms reflect light differently, each spindle retains real individual impact, showcasing the quality of the woodwork.  Pear Stairs online shop has spindles in three standard sizes, in two lengths. Shop For 32mm 35mm and 41mm Spindles (Lengths 900mm and 1100mm)

We also sell the LARGER Fernhill Classic 55mm Spindle  (in both 900mm and 1100mm).

newel caps, pear stairs, staircase parts, newel parts


Metal Newel Caps are available from our online shop as part of your bespoke staircase design. Truly unique, these newel caps enable you to mix metal and timber for an ultra-modern look. The impact of this is enhanced by the combination of traditional shapes with a modern metal finish. Our metal newel caps are available in three designs:

The metal ball cap modernises what is perhaps the most familiar style of newel cap. This style is available in CHROME, BRUSHED NICKEL or BLACK.

The metal pyramid cap is offered with a choice of Chrome Plated or Brushed Nickel edges. They are topped with a low-profile pyramid of either oak, whitewood, or pine, for a subtle, modern gleam that can suit many different styles of staircase.   

This simple flat cap style is available in 90 x 90mm brushed nickel, 90 x 90mm chrome or 90 x 90mm black coated. The flat style is also available in the size 90 x 45mm (black or brushed nickel only).

Ideal for a staircase that makes the most of modern, clean lines and geometric shapes.



Pear Stairs can supply hand carved finial newel caps for your staircase. Each finial is handcrafted in America using limewood and shipped to us in temperature-controlled conditions. (Because each newel cap is guaranteed to have been carved by hand only, exact dimensions and details can vary slightly).                           

The impressive Acanthus Style designs. Available in small, medium and large.

The acanthus is a classical and extremely popular plant form that is commonly used to make foliage decorations and ornaments. The exact structure of this style of decoration varies due to the different leaf forms found on the different species of the acanthus plant. This style has been used in architecture and for many other decorative objects since at least ancient Greek times.                                     

The highly decorative Pineapple Style is available in a small, medium or extended design.

The pineapple has been a universal symbol of hospitality for centuries and is a hugely popular design for finials used as decorative features on furniture and in architecture.

The artistic Gothic Style is available in small, medium or large designs.

Gothic style architecture, art, and design is a classic medieval style that is often used for decorative features. Our Gothic finials are a simple but stylish design of newel cap.

handrail, pear stairs, rail profile


Pear Stairs supplies a wide range of handrails with varied and interesting profiles. Here’s a sample of the handrail profiles  on offer in our online shop:

Because we have so many handrail shapes in stock, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a style to match your individual taste. As the handrail is the first part of the staircase that most visitors will look at and touch, we believe it’s important that your handrail is of the highest quality it can be.

Each of the handrails we stock is available in Hemlock, Pine, Southern Yellow Pine, Sapele, American White Ash and American White Oak.

You can also browse through some of the other handrails we produce in natural timber or in stunning white primed.

Still can’t see anything that fits your vision? Don’t panic! For the perfect match, Pear Stairs is able to supply bespoke handrail profiles, manufactured to your design specifications.

Just get in touch with one of our design team and they will be happy to talk you through the process of designing your own handrail, unique to your staircase.



At Pear Stairs, we stock a range of handrail end caps (sometimes called 'opening caps') in a variety of metal and wood designs. From the ultra-modern Fusion end cap, available in stainless steel, chrome or brushed nickel, to the traditional wooden end cap, available as a rounded end or as an end scroll.

Wooden end caps are available in the full range of timbers stocked by Pear Stairs. Handrail end caps are used to hide the end grain where the handrail has been cut to length and provide a fluid, non-abrupt finish to the top and bottom of the handrail.

We also stock a variety of metal end caps including ones with delicate filigree metalwork, drawing on the Georgian style of décor. These can be polished to a brass effect or finished with a black or silver coating. Also available are solid metal end caps, lacking the filigree metalwork of the above end caps. These are available in either a small or medium-size and offer a touch of simple, industrial elegance. The delicate holes in the filigree pattern showcase the colour and texture of the wood beneath – ideal for showing off your choice of timbers! As above, this type of end cap is available in a polished brass effect or finished with a black or silver coating.

Staircase Flourishes: Bullnose Steps, D-End Steps     

When deciding on the design of your staircase, it may also be an idea to add a feature step for that extra luxurious touch.              

A bullnose (also called a ‘bullnose step’ or ‘starting step’) is a decorative feature that can be added to the bottom of a staircase that is open on one or both sides. (‘Open’ means that the edge of the staircase does not butt up against a wall.) This means that the first step from the bottom of the staircase may be rounded, and wider than the other steps.

Alternatively, you may prefer a D-Step. A D-end step (sometimes called a ‘curtail step’) is a similar decorative feature, that can be added to the bottom of a staircase that is open on one or both sides. A D-end differs from a bullnose in that it is wider, and usually incorporates a full turn of 180° on the rounded side.

Pear Stairs supplies pre-made bullnose and D-End steps available to ship to you immediately. These can then be installed by you, cutting to size if necessary. Alternatively, we are able to manufacture bullnose or D-end steps ourselves, bespoke to your specifications. We have created a variety of bespoke bullnose steps for unique staircase designs, such as the square bullnose opposite. Using kerfing, we can even create curved bullnose risers using hardwoods such as oak and sapele.

As well as supplying our stair parts locally, we also supply to Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Birmingham, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, East Sussex, Essex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Kent, Leicestershire, London, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Oxford, Somerset, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire.
