Excel Stairs turn artistic concepts into perfect and practical staircase geometry, UK

Customer - staircon Excel Stairs Durand 57

Excel Stairs started using Staircon in 2006 when they first invested in a CNC. It has now become an invaluable software for them and they are very happy with the product as well as the support service. They are a traditional family business that has pushed its way to the forefront of digital design, and the top step of the luxury staircase market. Today it can create almost unlimited designs, turn artistic concepts into perfect and practical staircase geometry, and help exacting clients to interact with their evolving designs in 3D. Staircon from Elecosoft helps it deliver at every stage of the process from design through to production.

From some of the biggest and most complex staircases in the world, right down to the plain old straight domestic flight, Excel Stairs can and does produce it all. When developers want a staircase that can help sell a property, they will often pick up the phone to Paul Elkin of Excel Stairs to harness his vast experience. It is increasingly known, however, for its designs for the high-end, luxury and often celebrity market. One reason it has been so successful at penetrating this lucrative niche is the fact that its design and production processes are supported by Staircon, augmenting the core skills of trained craftspeople.

When it comes to staircases, Paul and his team help make their clients’ dreams come true –

“There’s nothing we cannot do”

he says.

“Staircon not only helps the delivery but also supports engagement with the client, right through the process. With Staircon, we are able to show our clients how their staircase will look and take them through different material and style options before pressing on into production”

says Excel Stairs director Paul Elkin.

“With a click of the button, we can show them different styles and different material options, making changes in front of the client’s eyes. This never fails to impress them and they always leave our office feeling happy and confident that they have ordered just what they want. Gone are the days when clients have to take a leap of faith and hope for the best, come delivery day! Staircon is very user friendly and if you do come across any snags, it’s very easy to email the problem over to the Elecosoft support team, who will fix the problem and also send back a video or explanation showing you how they solved the problem”

Paul Elkin continues.

“This is great as you can see where you went wrong and learn from your mistakes.”
