Technical Advice for Stair Winders
Making and fitting carpets for stairs with winders is always more challenging than for a straight staircase.
If you are planning to fit a carpet or runner for stairs with winders, please call us on 0113 225 9535 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements.
We can offer advise on choosing the ideal carpet for your stair runner, as well as discuss how we will fit the stair runner carpet on the kite winders, how to make the templates for your winders and some of the pitfalls to look out for.

Examples of how NOT to fit stair runners on winders
The images below show some of the pitfalls to look out for when fitting a stair runner on winders.
The perfectly fitted stair runner starts with a paper template
All we need are measurements and some paper templates of the stair winders. The images below are a quick guide of how to make the templates.
The paper should be of lining paper quality for us to be able to work with your templates in our warehouse. Templates should be numbered and marked as illustrated in the photographs.
Once you have completed your templates, please take a few digital photos of them fitted on your stairs, prior to posting the templates to us.
Staircase Winder Template Service
We also offer a Staircase Winder Template Service. We will visit your home to take the measurements, create the templates and take photos of your staircase. Our Staircase Winder Template Service charges start from just £200. Please call us on 0113 225 9535 for more information.
