How to Choose the Right Stair Rods

Monday 22 December, 2014

There are a number of factors that need to be considered when choosing the ideal stair rod, each will have an impact on the final product and therefore the overall finish of the design project.

Firstly, ensuring that the stair rods are supplied as a solid brass rod, as opposed to hollow, is one such consideration. Hollow stair rods have a tendency to dent and buckle over time and end up requiring replacement significantly sooner than a solid brass stair rod. All our brass stair rods are turned from only the highest quality brass available, ensuring that the final product will have the quality to stand the test of time.

Thought must be given to the style of the end of the rod.  Rather than offering a one style fits all approach, we are able to lathe a range of ends including Ball Ends, Acorn End and Tulip End. Each will be bespoke turned for your order and completed to all agreed specifications.

Once the decisions have been made on the nature of the rod, the decision on the final finish should be made. At Brass Tacks, we have a wide range of final finishing techniques, each of which will transform the look and feel of your final design project, and blend beautifully in to their surroundings.

Finally, it is important to choose a trusted, professional and reliable supplier with over 85 years manufacturing experience, and who has proudly supplied some of the most prestigious brands in the world. Brass Tacks are the industry suppler of choice and provides the peace of mind for even the most complex of projects and discerning of customers, and we are very proud of our heritage.
