Trade Brochure 2012 Edition


How long does it take to create timeless beauty? About 140 years. Experience is an invaluable commodity. It provides all the knowledge and skills necessary to make a job easier. And the Burbidge family have over 140 years’ worth. So when you admire the quality and craftsmanship in any product from Richard Burbidge, it’s easy to forget the woodworking skill and sheer passion that goes into it. But it’s been at the heart of our family’s business since 1867. Today, our people – like Eddie – are also committed to developing new designs and innovative systems for inside and outside the home; and to providing you with truly outstanding levels of individual service. Whatever your project, together we’ll help make it happen.


How to make an entrance grand. It’s quite simple really. Just take a look at the Richard Burbidge range of domestic and commercial stairparts. With such a huge choice of styles, materials and detail options, it’s easy to totally transform a hallway, foyer or open space. The same is true of our choice of outdoor decking and balustrade…and our vast selection of mouldings. Because the fact is, with Richard Burbidge you’ll find everything you need to make any job, whatever the size, just perfect. And this brochure is the perfect starting point.

We’re here when you need us

We care where our wood comes from

We’re proud of being a family-run business, not a faceless plc. So you can always call on us for any help you need. If you’re at the planning stage, we offer a complete bespoke planning service to help you make the right decisions – as well as our easy-to-use online STAIRPLANNER™. We’ve a whole team of friendly customer service advisors to help you with any problems you might have, or if it’s a technical issue once your project’s underway, our support team is just a call away.

As you’d expect of a major timber company, we’re very careful about where we source our wood from. All the timber we use comes from legal sources, with an ever-increasing amount from certified sustainable forests. But our responsibilities go deeper than that, as we also make sure our business operations reduce their negative impact on the environment.

Whatever you need, including technical help for example, you can reach us on the number below. Or you can ask us any questions online, via our website (just go to the ‘technical helpdesk’ section). Customer services +44 (0) 1691 678300

Stairparts

Immediate appeal, impressive performance. Walk through any front door, and the first thing you see is usually the staircase. That’s why it’s so important it creates the right impression – and so important to choose the right one. The latest balustrade collections from Richard Burbidge give homeowners all the design style and imagination they need to transform their property and even add to its value. And it’s surprising just how affordable it can be.

Inspiration meets innovation Incorporating the premium quality timber and superb craftsmanship for which we’re renowned, our styles span the classic and contemporary, with graceful curves and bold, geometric lines to reflect personal tastes and match any home beautifully. Our dedicated team of designers has created all the options and flexibility you need, together with up-to-date designs and very latest fitting methods to help to make life easier.

White Oak featuring Colonial spindle with tulip newel.

Rigorous testing means you can choose Richard Burbidge balustrade with confidence Whatever exciting new innovations we come up with though, quality, durability and safety are just as important so our products will do their job long into the future. That’s why every one is put through a series of rigorous tests and assessments by BM TRADA & FIRA Certification Limited, the recognised authorities in timber product testing. And of course, all our balustrade satisfies the necessary domestic Building Regulations, as set out in various British Standards.

Stairparts

Not so much a staircase, more a centrepiece. A first impression. A focal point. A central hub, with life flowing along and around it day and night. It may seem an odd way to look at a staircase, but when you think about the role it plays you can see why it’s so important that it suits the style of home it’s in. Richard Burbidge balustrade (also known as stairparts) makes changing the look of any staircase easier – and more affordable – than might be expected. Each of our ranges is a component system made up of stair spindles, newel posts, rails and accessories. And every part is designed to perfectly match the next, so whichever of the seemingly endless options is chosen you can be sure the overall effect will be perfect.

All NEW for 2012 we bring you two entirely new ranges and a host of beautifully designed wall mounted handrail options to breathe new life into your staircase. Immix combines timber rails and newels with glass panels. This system utilises an innovative fixing system making it simple to install and would look at home from barn conversions to statement hallways. See page 28 Elements re-invents the metal baluster option with a range of exciting new designs and an ingenious fixing method. With the added option of a primed baluster you can now colour match the infill to your surroundings. See page 42 Finally a host of new wall mounted options, in a range of finishes, means even if you have your stairs between walls you can now lift the look. Designed to be easy to fit the range covers traditional and modern designs. See page 82

Terminology Your guide to the symbols used in this brochure The screwdriver symbol indicates the level of skill required to install a balustrade system, graded in an increasing scale from 1 to 4 (1 = average DIY-er, 4 = skilled pro).

The price points throughout the brochure are a simple comparison, showing the amount you could expect to pay for stairparts for a 12-tread staircase.

Baluster – The vertical posts or spindles between the handrail and the baserail. May be plain, turned, square or flat. Baserail – The rail that runs along the base of the balusters. Cap – The decorative piece on top of the newel turning. Handrail – The smooth rail fixed to the top of the balusters. Newel turning – The large post at the beginning, end or turn of a stair rail. Cut string – A staircase with the profile or side of the steps visible. Closed string – A staircase with the profile or side of the steps concealed.

Over-the-post – Often described as a over-the-post handrail system – continuous fix and in the style of grand period staircases, specially designed fittings allow the handrail to flow over the newels and spindles, creating smooth sweeping lines. Post-to-post – Typical of most staircases, this system has a newel post positioned at the top and bottom of your stairs, with a handrail fitted between them. There are two fixing methods for post-to-post: Traditional fix system – A flexible system based on modular components, with traditional mortise and tenon joints for a professional end result. Bracket fix system – A time-saving system using a series of predrilled newel posts and a unique adjustable bracket – a good choice for the competent DIY-er or professional fitters alike. 7

Building Regulations & British Standards

Rules & Regulations. Approved Document K of the Building Regulations 2000: Stairs, Ramps and Guards gives provisions for stairways in the design and building of stairways which form part of the structure and guidance on the aspects of geometry and guarding of stairs. BS585 Part 1 1999: Woodstairs covers specifications for stairs with closed risers for domestic use, including straight and winder flights and quarter or half landings. Appendix A of this standard also details the recommendations for the site fixing of stairs. BS5395 Part 1 2010: Stairs, Ladders and Walkways covers the design of straight stairs. BS6180 1999: Code of practice for protective barriers in and about buildings.

DEFINITIONS Private stairs intended to be used for only one dwelling with a maximum rise of 220mm and a minimum going of 220mm. A maximum pitch of 42° is stipulated for domestic stairs. Institutional and assembly stairs serving a place where a substantial number of people will gather, with a maximum rise of 150mm and a minimum going of 280mm. Buildings with a maximum rise of 190mm and a minimum going of 250mm are covered by all other stairs. Note - Institutional and assembly stairs plus other, both reference Approved Document M, Access and facilities for disabled people for the maximum permissible rise of stairs providing access for disabled people. The normal relationship between the dimensions of the rise and going can be expressed as detailed in Approved Document K, which states that twice the rise plus the going (2R+G) should be between 550mm and 700mm.

SUITABILITY FOR USE Pitch - The angle between the pitch line (notional line connecting nosings) and the horizontal. The maximum pitch for domestic stairs is 42°, semi-public stairs, e.g. factories, offices and common stairs serving more than one dwelling, 38° and public stairs, e.g. places of public assembly, 33°. Height of handrails - Approved Document K states that flights should have a handrail on at least one side if they are less than one metre wide and on both sides if they are wider than one metre. There is no need for handrails beside the bottom two steps of a stairway. Minimum domestic handrail heights of 900mm for both stairs and landings, public handrail heights should be a minimum of 900mm on stairs and 1100mm on landings. It is also a Building Regulations requirement that no openings in any balustrading should allow the passage of a 100mm sphere.

Richard Burbidge stair balustrade systems in all timber types have been fully tested by BM TRADA for conformity to domestic requirements as stated in the Building Regulations Part K, ‘The guarding should be able to resist a horizontal force of 0.36kN for each metre of length if it guards a private stairs’. In addition, spindles have been subjected to a separate test as stated in BS6180 table 2 column 4(a). Richard Burbidge also manufacture a number of systems for shared access and commercial use tested to the higher strength requirements of 0.74kN including Fusion Commercial, Heritage and Classic ranges.

Richard Burbidge stair balustrade systems were tested using traditional draw-bored mortise and tenon joints (post-to-post handrail system – mortise and tenon fix), patented universal brackets (post-to-post handrail system – bracket fix) and tie-rail bolts/metal fixing plates (over-the-post handrail system – continuous fix). We do not recommend the use of any other fixing method. Richard Burbidge stair balustrade is manufactured from high quality raw materials complying to BS1186 and are kiln dried ready for immediate internal use. All components are turned or moulded to profile and sanded to a fine finish. Richard Burbidge Limited is a BSI registered firm ISO9002 and is the first member of the BM TRADA Q Mark Approved Timber Balustrade Scheme (certificate No. 001).

Timber overview

A quick guide to the woods we use. Timber is a natural product and components may vary in colour between pieces. Walnut - Juglans nigra. USA, Canada. An even but coarse texture; the grain is usually straight, but can be wavy. Light brown to nearly black. Polishes to a fine finish. Average weight 660kg/m³. White Oak - Quercus alba and petraea. USA, Canada and Europe. A straight-grained medium to coarse texture hardwood. Ranges in colour from pale yellow brown to pale brown. Stains and polishes well and can also be limed. Average weight 720 to 760kg/m³. Ash - Fraximus Americana. Distributed throughout USA and Canada. A generally straight-grained hardwood, pale brown in colour sometimes tinged red. Stains and polishes well. Average weight 670kg/m³. Sapele - Entandrophragma cylindricum Sprague: Distributed in West and East Africa. Medium to dark reddish brown heartwood, similar to mahogany in colour. Sapele is characterised by a marked and regular stripe with an interlocked/wavy grain and is fairly close textured. Stains, varnishes and polishes extremely well. Average weight 640kg/m³. European Beech - Fagus sylvatica L.: No colour distinction between sapwood and heartwood, the timber being pale pink following medium steaming. An immensely strong timber that outperforms oak for bending strength, stiffness and shear by some 20%. It is also stronger in resistance to impact loads. It works well, producing a good, smooth surface and stains and polishes to an excellent finish. Average weight 720kg/m³.

Hemlock - Tsuga heterophylla Sarge: Western hemlock, a non-resinous North American softwood. Pale brown, straight grained with a fairly even texture. Can be painted, stained, varnished or polished. Average weight 500kg/m³. Pine - Pinus sylvestris L.: Commonly referred to as European redwood or Scots pine. Creamy white to yellow sapwood with a distinctive yellow/reddish brown resinous heartwood. Ideal for painting, staining and varnishing. Average weight 510kg/m³.

ACCLIMATISATION IMPORTANT - You should note that acclimatising timber products by leaving in the room or a room with a similar humidity for at least 48 hours is essential if problems associated with shrinkage and expansion are to be avoided. Storing stair balustrading, for example, in a cold and damp garage for months and then using for immediate internal installation is not good trade practice. This is due to timber being a natural material that both absorbs and loses moisture. The rule of thumb to remember is ‘timber plus water/moisture equals expansion’ and ‘timber plus heat equals shrinkage’. It is therefore extremely important to seal/finish your timber products once installed by painting, staining or varnishing (see page 103 for some ideas).

Classic White Oak with volute.


Staircase terminology

The parts of a staircase explained. Baluster/spindle - The vertical member, plain or decorative, that acts as the infill between the handrail and baserail (or tread if cut string). Balustrade - The collective name for the complete assembly of handrails, baserails, newels, spindles and caps. Post-to-post handrail system – bracket fix Patented Richard Burbidge Limited system which uses a bracket to fix the handrail to the specially designed newels. Bullnose step - Usually at the bottom of the stairs with one or both ends of the step having a quarter circle design. Closed string - A string with the face housed/trenched to accommodate treads and risers so their profile cannot be seen.

Over-the-post handrail system – continuous fix - Using straight lengths of handrail connected to handrail fittings and ramps, the handrail flows over the tops of newel turnings creating a continuous run of handrail. Curtail step - A decorative shaped step at the bottom of the stairs usually accommodating the volute and volute newel turning of the continuous handrail system. Cut or open string - A string with the upper edge cut away to the shape of the treads and risers so that their profile can be seen from the side.

Nosing - The edge of the tread projecting beyond the face of the riser and the face of a cut string. Pitch - The angle between the pitch line and the horizontal. Pitch line - The notional line connecting the nosings of all treads in a flight of stairs. Rake - The pitch of the stairs.

Going - The going of a flight of stairs is the horizontal distance between the face of the first and last risers. The individual going of a step is measured from face of riser to face of riser and for domestic use should be a minimum of 220mm.

Fig. 1 - Elevation and section

Newel - Accommodates the strings, handrails and treads/risers of stairs.

Rise - The rise of a flight is the vertical distance between the floors or landings connected by the flight. The individual rise is the vertical measurement from top of tread to top of tread. Riser - The board that forms the face of the step. The maximum individual rise for domestic flights is 220mm.

Fig. 3 - Balustrades and handrails

Fig. 2 - Rise and going

Staircase - The entire structure relating to a stair, comprising steps, treads, risers, strings, balustrading, landings etc. Stairway/stairwell - The space/void provided for the stairs. Step - The tread and riser combined. String margin - The distance between the top of the string and the pitch line measured at 90° to the pitch line. Tread - The top or horizontal surface of a step. Wall string - The string of a staircase fixed flush with a wall. Winders - Are radiating steps narrower at one end that are used to change the direction of a stairs through 90° or 180°.

Staircase configurations

How we’ve made fitting easier. Richard Burbidge stair balustrade components have been designed for use in the majority of staircase configurations. No staircase need present a problem if the components are used and installed in the correct manner. To assist, the following post-to-post handrail system – bracket fix, post-to-post handrail system – mortise and tenon fix and over-the-post handrail system – continous fix configurations illustrate the most popular bottom of flight, intermediate and top landing options in the construction of staircases. The individual components are identified on each illustration together with a simple plan view of the stairs. All diagrams are based on domestic staircases with a maximum pitch of 42°, individual rise of 200mm and individual going of 223mm. Handrail heights for both stairs and landing are illustrated at the minimum UK Building Regulations stipulation of 900mm. Further advice on all systems is available by contacting our technical advisors on +44 (0) 1691 678212.

Staircase configurations Other situations CUT STRING

CEILING LINE / STRING OVER STRING (Figs 2 and 3)

There are two ways of installing spindles to a cut string staircase. The traditional method used by professional tradesmen is to fix the spindles to the top of the tread by constructing a stub tenon woodworking joint. An alternative and more modern way of fixing is to cut individual lengths of baserail and screw to each tread. The spindles and fillets are then fixed as normal by glueing and pinning. This method is excellent for carpet finishes.

When a handrail hits the underside of a ceiling line or second flight string we recommend that you run a length of handrail up from the bottom newel until it meets the ceiling/string and a further length of handrail along the underside of the ceiling/string. Where the two handrails meet they should be mitred together and fixed using a combination of glue, screws, dowels and/or metal plate.

As spindles reach the underside of the ceiling/string they will become shorter in length, to maintain an aesthetically pleasing balance with the pitch of the stairs and handrail, keep the bottom square of all spindles the same length and reduce the spindle from the top downwards. Depending on the style of spindle you are using it may be necessary to cut into the turned part of the spindle and to space you should cut the timber fillets/spacers with a coping saw to suit the spindles radius. Fix the spindles and fillets as normal with glue and panel pins/lost head nails.

Fig. 2 - Ceiling lines

Fig. 3 - String over string

Both methods of installation use 1100mm length spindles on the front and back edges of the tread.

Installation information Post-to-post handrail system – mortise and tenon fix

Over-the-post handrail system – continuous fix

The Richard Burbidge Post-to-post handrail system – mortise and tenon fix (also known as post-to-post) is designed for traditional fixing using mortise and tenon joints to fix the handrails to newels.

The Richard Burbidge over-the-post handrail system – continuous fix (also known as over-the-post) is designed for professional installation by skilled tradesmen.

This system is designed primarily for professional installation by tradesmen who are fully conversant with this type of traditional woodworking joint.

This system uses straight lengths of handrail connected to a series of shaped handrail fittings and ramps which allow the handrail to flow over the tops of newels.

We recommend that tenons are constructed so that they are a minimum one-third the width of the handrail and half the the length of the newel post. Tenons should be draw bored using a minimum 9mm diameter dowel. We do not recommend the use of post-to-post handrail system – bracket fix newel base heights when setting out the post-to-post handrail system – mortise and tenon fix. Newel base heights for this system should be calculated by setting out the newels and establishing where the handrail will meet the newel post. Post-to-post handrail system – mortise and tenon fix stairparts have been designed to achieve minimum domestic handrail heights of 900mm for both stairs and landings. To calculate how many spindles you will need count the number of treads between newels on the stairs. Allow 2 spindles per tread and 1 spindle per tread that has a newel post. For example a 12 tread staircase with newels at the bottom and top of the stairs will generally require 22 spindles. For landings and horizontal balustrades measure the horizontal distance in millimetres and divide by 112 for 32mm spindles and 121 for 41mm spindles. Building Regulations state that the gap between any part of the balustrade should not allow the passage of a 100mm sphere.

112

All handrail fittings and ramps are supplied over long and will need to be cut down to suit the individual staircase pitch. Handrail fittings and ramps are supplied with tie-rail bolts to allow jointing of the fittings to rails. Full instructions on how to use the tie-rail bolts are supplied with the fittings. To calculate how many spindles you will need count the number of treads between newels on the stairs. Allow 2 spindles per tread and 1 spindle per tread that has a newel post. For example a 12 tread staircase with newels at the bottom and top of the stairs will generally require 22 spindles. For landings and horizontal balustrades measure the horizontal distance in millimetres and divide by 112 for 32mm spindles, 121 for 41mm spindles, 126 for 46mm spindles and 135 for 55mm spindles. Building Regulations state that the gap between any part of the balustrade should not allow the passage of a 100mm sphere.

Installation information Post-to-post handrail system – bracket fix The Richard Burbidge patented post-to-post handrail system – bracket fix enables stair balustrade to be replaced and constructed quickly and easily without the need for professional woodworking mortise and tenon joints. The post-to-post handrail system – bracket fix has been specifically designed to save time using pre-drilled newels and a unique adjustable bracket that secures handrails to newels.

Brackets are sold individually apart from the N160D half newel which comes complete with a universal half bracket. To calculate how many spindles you will need count the number of treads between newels on the stairs. Allow 2 spindles per tread and 1 spindle per tread that has a newel post. For example a 12 tread staircase with newels at the bottom and top of the stairs will generally require 22 spindles. For landings and horizontal balustrades measure the horizontal distance in millimetres and divide by 112 for 32mm spindles and 121 for 41mm spindles. When using metal balusters on landings divide the horizontal measurement in millimetres by 112mm. Building Regulations state that the gap between any part of the balustrade should not allow the passage of a 100mm sphere.

Finishing advice

Creating a perfect finish. Once Richard Burbidge products have been installed they must be finished to seal the pores, protect the surface and give an attractive appearance. Successful finishing will depend on correct preparation of the surface, filling of nail holes and sanding to remove marks which have occurred during installation, for example. We recommend that all finishes are applied to test pieces so that the finish obtained is the one that you wish to achieve. Please read manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Richard Burbidge display models are spray lacquered. A similar finish can be achieved using brush applied methods follow the simple guidelines alongside for a perfect finish.

Brush applied varnish

Spray applied varnish

1. Sand the surface with a fine grade sandpaper. Traces of dust and grease can be removed using a cloth dampened with white spirit.

1. Rub down with 240 grit sandpaper and apply one coat of sanding/sealer. 2. Allow to dry and denib/sand with a fine grade wire wool.

2. First coat - mix together one part white spirit, three parts polyurethane clear varnish and if a colour is required one part spirit based wood stain/dye.

3. Apply two coats of pre-cat lacquer (if a coloured finish is required use tinted pre-cat lacquer).

3. Allow at least eight hours to dry. Lightly rub down using a fine grade wire wool and apply a coat of clear varnish only.

Note - Remember, a clear varnish will change the colour of wood which should be considered before deciding on a coloured finish. Practice on off-cuts before applying to product.

4. Allow at least eight hours to dry and apply two further coats of clear varnish.

Finishing advice

The following details are examples of some of the more popular ways of finishing. Of course, before applying your chosen finish (stain, paint or varnish) your timber product should be properly prepared. Pin/nail holes should be filled with a proprietary filler and the product sanded to remove blemishes that can occur during installation. Varnish

Oils

Protective wood stains

Liming

Available in clear matt, satin and gloss finishes and also tinted/coloured, varnish gives a tough, durable and hardwearing finish which requires minimal maintenance and is heat and water resistant. Coloured varnishes have the advantage of being suitable for application on previously varnished surfaces. When applying coloured varnishes you should note that as they do not penetrate the wood like a true wood stain/dye it is a good idea to finish with a couple of coats of clear varnish which will prevent colour loss due to wear and tear.

Oils can be used to seal timber. They do, however, tend to be used on hardwoods only as softwoods discolour and become dirty very quickly. There are various types available which are easy to apply, usually by rag or brush. Teak oil is quick drying whilst danish oil has the advantage of being able to accept a varnish for added protection. Linseed oil is slow drying and tends to be soft.

All in one finish enhances the colour of wood and is normally brush applied. Unlike wood stains/dyes it also seals the timber and is quick drying with further coats being applied after just two hours.

This is best applied to coarse grained woods such as oak. A traditional mixture for liming oak can be achieved by mixing unslaked lime with water. Once applied and semi-dry any surplus is wiped off. When dry this is rubbed down with glasspaper and a coat of french polish is added, with a final coat of white polish to finish. Alternatively, an easier method is to mix white matt emulsion with water to the same consistency as milk and brush into the grain, wiping off before setting. To finish and seal two coats of satin varnish are applied, giving an eggshell shine. Liming wax is also available, which is quick and easy to apply.

As well as polyurethane varnishes there are a number of acrylic/water-based varnishes which are solvent free, have a low odour and are extremely quick drying. They also have the advantage of easy brush maintenance and require only a quick rinse with water after use.

Wood stains/dyes These will penetrate the wood and are used to enhance the colour and to some extent unify and neutralise the natural colour variations that occur in timbers. They tend to dry quickly and are usually applied with a cloth along the grain. Before it is dry, excess stain/dye is wiped off with a lint-free cloth. Wood stains/dyes do not seal the timber and require a varnish or polish application to finish.

French polish This gives a very good gloss finish. It is applied by building up in layers and is made from a mixture of shellac and alcohol, with a fair degree of skill required to achieve a good finish. French polish does not provide any real protection, with the surface not resistant to scratches, heat, water or alcohol and is normally applied to surfaces that receive little wear and tear. A modern alternative two part treatment is ‘plastic coating’, which does provide resistance to heat, liquids and scratches.

Paint Use a ‘knotting’ solution on live knots and resinous areas. This prevents resin bleeding/seeping through onto the finished surface. New bare timber should have a coat of primer, followed by one or two coats of undercoat. Finish with a topcoat of gloss. There are numerous painting finishes and techniques, for example, crackle, glaze, marble or mottled effects.

Architectural mouldings This is where you can really make a difference to any job, adding a superb quality finish whether it’s a house, hotel or even a hospital. Architectural mouldings – skirting boards, dado rails, and cornices – can be found in any residential or commercial building. Usually, they just blend in; but they can do so much more. A change of skirting can add real character; a dado can define a different colour or texture; a cornice or picture rail can make a high ceiling feel lower. Our architectural range combines all of our experience, skill and passion to produce a choice of styles from Traditional to Contemporary.

Outdoor

Turn outdoor space into living space. A dining room. A playroom. A sitting room. The outdoors is now more an extension of living space than ever. And with Richard Burbidge balustrade, you can turn plain patios into warm and welcoming places to relax and uneven ground into safe, enclosed play areas. You can even incorporate anything from a sand pit to a hot tub, to create a feature that looks equally attractive in winter or summer.

Rigorously tested to guarantee great performance As you’d expect, reliability and safety are vitally important in a balustrade system – and to us as a company. That’s why all our balustrade ranges are put through a series of rigorous tests by BM TRADA Certification Limited, the recognised authority in timber product testing. This means that they satisfy the necessary Building Regulations, as set out in the relevant British Standards. As members of the Timber Decking Association (TDA) our balustrade ranges are audited every year to their strict standards. And because our products are performance rated to the British Standards it means they also carry the TDA’s DeckMark Plus symbol: a true sign of quality assurance. Don’t forget that in certain cases you may need planning permission for a balcony or deck construction. To be on the safe side, check with your local authority before starting any work.

DECKPLANNER™ makes it even easier We may be a traditional family business, but that doesn’t stop us using innovative technology to help you make it happen. Take DECKPLANNER™, our fantastic online tool that makes it simple to plan what balustrade you’ll need for any outdoor area such as a deck or balcony. It calculates all the parts you need, and even prints out full parts lists and drawings. You’ll find it on our website www.richardburbidge.com It’s completely free and easy-to-use; but if you feel you need a little extra help, don’t worry – just call us.

Looking after your deck

Building regulations and safety

All Richard Burbidge softwood outdoor components are pressure treated with Osmose Naturewood or the new MicroPro® and MicroShades® wood treatments to make sure they last for years; but with the right care you’ll be able to keep your deck in first-class condition.

A well-constructed deck and balustrade should be perfectly safe – and you can find complete instructions on our website www.richardburbidge.com Our outdoor balustrades fully meet the following specifications:

Treated softwood should be cleaned twice a year by brushing off debris, pressure washing (or using a proprietary deck cleaner if necessary) and then applying a clear water-repellent treatment or coloured stain.

Ground level domestic settings: Designed to resist loadings of 0.36kN/m

Hardwood is naturally durable and will weather to a silvery grey if left untreated. It’s easy to maintain its colour and highlight the natural graining though, just by treating it with a decking oil twice a year. You’ll find more advice and tips on maintenance on our website.

Terminology

Raised level domestic settings (decks 600mm or higher above ground level): Designed to resist loadings of 0.74kN/m Building regulations also specify minimum handrail heights: Ground level domestic settings: 900mm (stairs and horizontal balustrade) Raised level domestic settings: 900mm (stairs), 1100mm (horizontal balustrade)

Baluster, spindle and panel The vertical infill components that sit between the handrail and the baserail. May be wood, metal or glass. Baserail The rail that runs along the base of the balusters. Handrail The rail fixed to the tops of the balusters. Newel The larger posts at regular intervals and either end of a balustrade.

141


Our Traditional range can be summed up in one word: choice. It has no fewer than six different types of infill panel or spindle in wood, metal and glass; three different newels to choose from; and all topped off with a choice of two styles of rail. With so many options it’s easy to create an individual style, rustic or sophisticated, bold or understated.

Treatments to keep your deck at its best

A revolution in wood protection and appearance. Richard Burbidge Decking products are traditionally protected against fungal decay and insect attack by Osmose Naturewood® a leading preservative system. In 2011, Richard Burbidge are delighted to lead the UK decking and outdoor balustrade market by introducing an advanced range of products protected and enhanced by MicroPro® and MicroShades® technology. MicroPro Micronized Timber® provides proven protection and enhanced appearance for all outdoor living projects.

Osmose Naturewood Richard Burbidge softwood outdoor balustrade and decking components are traditionally pressure treated with Osmose Naturewood to make sure they perform in exterior environments and last for years; with the right care you’ll be able to keep your deck in first-class condition.

MicroPro and MicroShades – Revolutionary technologies MicroPro and MicroShades technologies have been designed to protect and enhance the appearance of modern timber products. The revolutionary technology offers consumers and designers across the world a new look and a new choice in preserved wood. MicroPro and MicroShades technology offers many benefits including: n A natural, fresh consistent look with a choice of options n Improved corrosion protection for exterior fasteners and hardware. n Greenguard® environmental accreditation.

MicroPro – Modern fresh appearance MicroPro pressure treated wood is lighter in colour compared to current copper based treated timber products. The unique appearance differentiates the product in the marketplace. The attractive colour allows DIY enthusiasts and contractors to build with treated timber that appears lighter, fresher, and more natural in appearance.

MicroShades – Looks different because it is different MicroPro pressure treated wood products are also available in an attractive Hardwood tone when produced in conjunction with the new MicroShades colour pigment system. MicroShades has long-lasting colour that gets richer over time, and performs well beyond normal market expectations.

European versions of micronized copper preservatives will be manufactured, using the proprietary Osmose MicroPro technology, under the control systems of ISO 14001, the recognised standard in Europe for environmental management.

Building Regulations & British Standards SUITABILITY FOR USE Richard Burbidge external balustrade systems in all timber types have been independently tested by both TRADA and FIRA for conformity with UK Building Regulations. All balustrade systems conform with the requirements for domestic use as detailed in Table 4 of BS 6399 : Part 1 : 1996 Loadings for buildings. Domestic settings - All areas within or serving exclusively one dwelling including stairs and landings, the balustrades should resist a minimum horizontal uniformly distributed line load of 0.36kN/m, a uniformily distributed load applied to the infill of 0.5kN/m2 and a point load applied to part of the infill of 0.25kN. For decks above 600mm above ground balustrades need to conform to the same requirements as the heavier loadings detailed in the commercial settings section.

Raised domestic and light commercial settings Some of our systems have been tested and conform to the increased loading requirements for commercial applications which are defined as areas not susceptible to overcrowding in office, leisure and institutional buildings such as hotels, doctors and dental surgeries and stairs in multi occupancy buildings such as apartments. In these applications the increased requirements detail that a balustrade should resist a minimum horizontal uniformly distributed line load of 0.74kN/m, a uniformly distributed load applied to the infill of 1.0kN/m2 and a point load applied to part of the infill of 0.5kN. Heavy commercial settings - Additionally balustrades in commerical areas with tables or fixed seating where people may congregate and are susceptible to overcrowding should have the balustrade set at 900mm on stairs and 1100mm for landings and horizontal guarding. Balustrades for these environments should resist a minimum horizontal uniformly distributed line load of 1.5kN/m, a uniformly distributed load applied to the infill of 1.5kN/m² and a point load applied to part of the infill of 1.5kN.

Building your deck CONSTRUCTING THE FRAME Please read these instructions carefully and with the appropriate balustrade installation instructions prior to building your deck. If the deck is to be attached to the side of a house or building, the finished level of the deck should be at least two brick courses below the damp course level. Use a Richard Burbidge 150 x 47mm joist as a wall plate/ledger to carry and support the joists. Keep the wall plate off the wall by approximately 10mm by packing behind the plate or by fixing washers over the wall plate fixing. This will allow water running down the face of the brickwork to pass behind rather than on top of the plate. Alternatively if fixing the wall plate directly to the wall use a metal flashing keyed into the mortar in the brickwork and dressed down over the plate to keep water off the top surface. For ground level and elevated decks it is important that the proposed site is marked out accurately if you want the finished deck to be square. To create a square deck and determine the overall size, mark out the area using a basic building technique consisting of batter boards (horizontal boards with a peg at each end to secure into the ground), pegs and string line. To check the corners are 90° use a ‘3-4-5’ builders square, which you can construct from straight lengths of timber, creating a triangle with sides in the ratio of ‘3-4-5’ e.g. 60cm, 80cm and 100cm. Adjust the string lines accordingly until square.

The construction methods for building either a ground level deck or elevated deck are basically the same; both are fixed to a frame constructed of Richard Burbidge 150 x 47mm joists. The main difference between the two is that for ground level decks you can use concrete paving slabs if desired rather than structural posts and beams to support the decks frame.

GROUND LEVEL DECKS As previously mentioned, a ground level deck can be laid onto concrete paving slabs. Use a minimum slab size of 600 x 600 x 50mm and bed these into position with either mortar, sand and cement or sand. Space the paving slabs at maximum centres of 1800mm. The frame to support and fix the deckboards is constructed from Richard Burbidge 150 x 47mm joists. These should be spaced at maximum 400mm centres and fixed to each other using Richard Burbidge landscape screws and/or galvanised nails, joist hangers, metal angles or 100 x 100mm timber offcuts. For additional strength, noggins (offcuts of joists) are then fixed at 90° to the joist.

ELEVATED DECKS Richard Burbidge decking materials and accessories are suitable for decks elevated up to 600mm above ground. For high level decks over 600mm consult a reputable builder or structural engineer.

Elevated decks can be free standing or have one or more sides attached to the side of a house, building or wall. The joist frame used to support and fix the deckboards is in turn supported by posts and beams. Beams are constructed from Richard Burbidge joists and structural posts. Posts should be spaced at maximum centres of 1800mm. Fix the posts into the holes using concrete, cap the top of the concrete with a trowel so that water runs away from the posts. Once the posts have set, attach the beams to the posts using Richard Burbidge 150mm landscape screws at the desired height. The joist frame is then fixed to the beams by skew nailing or screwing with joist centres at maximum 400mm centres. For additional strength as with ground level decks, noggins should then be fixed at 90° to the joists. For maximum strength and stability fix the joists to the ledger boards/wall plates and framing joists using joist hangers.

FIXING DECKBOARDS There are three ways of fixing deckboards, either by using Richard Burbidge secret fix deck ties or traditional fixing using screws or nails. Unless your deck design uses standard lengths of deckboards you will need to stagger the deckboards to cover the deck area. To prevent movement and give structural stability staggered boards must be fixed to a double joist. It is perfectly natural for deckboards to swell when wet and shrink when dry. Some variation in the gaps between the deckboards is therefore inevitable and these gaps will vary in size from season to season.

184


Building your deck

DECK TIES

TRADITIONAL FIXING

STEPS

You can eliminate installation damage to the face of deckboards, which can happen when screwing or nailing by using Richard Burbidge deck ties.

For traditional fixing use either nails or screws we recommend Richard Burbidge 75mm ceramic galvanised screws as the preferred traditional fixing option as damaged individual deckboards are far easier to remove and replace.

The height and position of your deck will influence the style and height of your steps. Steps can be constructed from a combination of posts, joists and deckboards or Richard Burbidge cut strings.

Deck ties automatically space the deckboards and are completely hidden when fixed. Please note when using deck ties for fixing deckboards during the planning stage you must allow for the joist arrangement to be at 90째 to the finished deckboard laying pattern. The back edge of the first deckboard should be fixed to the joists using Richard Burbidge 75mm ceramic galvanised screws. Countersink and fill the screw head to prevent possible injury to feet. Once the first row of deckboards has been fixed, position deck ties in the centre of each joist and to the edge of the deckboard. Use a hammer to knock the deck ties into the joists and tap the face of the deck ties so that they are flush with the edge of the deckboard, secure using Richard Burbidge 40mm annular ring nails. Place the back edge of the next board against the spikes of the previously fixed deck ties and using a timber block to protect the board knock onto the spikes with a hammer. To prevent the board springing along its length off the deck ties this is best done with two people. Repeat this procedure until all the deckboards have been fixed. The final board should be fixed exactly as the first board, through the face of the deckboard using Richard Burbidge 75mm ceramic galvanised screws.

Whichever fixing method you choose it is essential to use fixings of at least 75mm in length. The deckboards should be fixed along their length to every supporting joist using 2 fixings per face/joist. Keep the fixings at least 25mm from the ends and edges of the boards and to minimise the risk of splitting it is recommended that the boards be predrilled to accommodate the fixings. The boards should be spaced with a 6 to 9mm gap to allow for drainage and movement. Unless the size of the deck has been designed and planned to use single length boards it will be necessary to join boards along their length. It is essential that joined boards must always meet over a joist. Use additional sections of joist to increase the area for fixing.

The Richard Burbidge ranges include 2 sizes of cut strings for step building both having individual rises of 190mm. 3 step string/570mm rise and 5 step string/950mm rise. The number of steps and risers required will be determined by the height of the deck and the available space in front of it. Position the strings at right angles to the deck at maximum 400mm centres and fix to the joists using suitable galvanised brackets or joist hangers. At ground level rest and fix strings to paving slabs or concrete slabs for maximum stability. Treads are created from deckboards allowing 30mm to overhang each string. Fix the deckboards to the strings using Richard Burbidge deck ties or 75mm ceramic galvanised screws. Additional fixings such as galvanised angle brackets can also be used.

To avoid injury to feet, nail and screw heads should always be fixed below the surface of the deckboards. Countersink screw heads below surface and use a nail punch for nails. Check once or twice a season and retighten or re-punch any raised fixings. Use an endcoat preservative on all surfaces exposed by drilling and cutting.

185


Maintenance & finishing

Looking after outdoor decking and balustrade. Whichever Richard Burbidge outdoor balustrade and decking is fitted, making sure it gets the correct treatment and maintenance will make sure it looks good for longer. Here you’ll find details of the various materials we use and how to keep them at their best. All Richard Burbidge softwood timber decking materials are manufactured from European Redwood/British grown Scots Pine, a light coloured knotty softwood used extensively in UK construction work. It is perfectly natural as the timber weathers for some surface checking and splitting to occur due to the natural variation in moisture content and the effects of wetting and drying. These surface defects will have no adverse effect to the deck’s structure. Once the installation is complete you may wish to apply a proprietary deck cleaner which removes the build up of dirt and grease that can occur during construction, deck cleaners also brighten the timber. Any treated or untreated timber exposed to the natural elements should be protected from the weather. To enhance the treated softwood decking apply either a proprietary clear water repellent or semi-transparent stain. Before applying the finish you must make sure your deck and balustrades are dry. Test by sprinkling drops of water onto the timber’s surface. If the wood does not absorb the water, wait a few days to allow the timber to dry out and retest before application.

186

HARDWOOD BALUSTRADES Richard Burbidge Hardwood external balustrades are manufactured from Sapele, a dark hardwood similar to a mahogany colour of reddish brown. Although moderately durable any untreated timber exposed to the natural elements should be protected from the weather to make them more resistant to picking up moisture. To enhance and protect the hardwood balustrade apply either a proprietary clear water repellent, semi-transparent stain or decking oil. Before applying the finish you must make sure your balustrades are dry. Test by sprinkling drops of water onto the timber’s surface. If the wood does not absorb the water, wait a few days to allow the timber to dry out and retest before application.

BALUSTRADE MAINTENANCE For both softwood and hardwood timber balustrade components always follow the seal, stain or oil manufacturer’s recommendations and test on an off-cut or hidden surface. How often you apply further coats of water seal, stain or oil will depend on the balustrade’s usage, and we recommend that all components be recoated at least once a year. Please refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations. For non-timber items such as acrylic panels and zinc alloy posts and rails use a soft cloth, luke warm water and a mild detergent. Do not polish or use abrasive cleaners and scourers as these can damage and scratch the surface coatings.

DECK MAINTENANCE How often you clean the deck will depend on its usage and position in relation to trees and foliage. Once or twice a season give the deck a brush with a stiff broom which will not only maintain the appearance but also remove algae and reduce the risk of slipperiness.

The deck can be given an annual clean using a hosepipe and if necessary a proprietary deck cleaner and brightener. Surface resin can be removed using a sharp broadfaced chisel and the area then recoated. Use a knife to remove any debris that has built up in the grooves between deckboards as these gaps allow for drainage and air circulation. Check all fixings and repunch nail heads and retighten all screwheads if required.

OSMOSE NATUREWOOD All Richard Burbidge softwood outdoor balustrade components are pressure treated with Osmose Naturewood to make sure they last for at least 15 years; Initially it has a green appearance that weathers to a honey brown before fading to driftwood grey after long-term exposure (it can also be painted or stained to match any outdoor colour scheme).

OSMOSE MICROPRO® AND MICROSHADES® Our outdoor balustrade is also the first in the UK to feature the revolutionary Osmose MicroPro® and MicroShades® wood treatments. Both give a lighter, consistent, fresher and more natural appearance (MicroShades® has an added warm brown pigment), with a long-lasting colour that actually enriches with age. They help protect fasteners and hardware from corrosion, and will take paint or stain better if desired. To maintain any of our outdoor softwood in first-class condition, it should be cleaned twice a year by brushing off debris, pressure washing (or using a proprietary deck cleaner if necessary) and then applying a clear water-repellent treatment or coloured stain.


Maintenance & finishing

IMPORTANT GENERAL INFORMATION n Do not burn preserved wood. n Wear a dust mask and goggles when cutting or sanding wood. n Wear gloves when working with wood. n Some preservative may migrate from the treated wood into soil/water or may dislodge from the treated wood surface upon contact with skin. Wash exposed skin areas thoroughly. n All sawdust and construction debris should be cleaned up and disposed of after construction. n Wash work clothes separately from other household clothing before re-use. n Preserved wood should not be used where it may come into direct contact or indirect contact with drinking water, except for uses involving incidental contact such as fresh water docks and bridges. n Do not use preserved wood under circumstances where the preservative may become a component of food, animal feed, or beehives.

n Disposal recommendations: Preserved wood may be disposed of in landfills or burned in commercial or industrial incinerators or boilers in accordance with national and regional regulations. n If you want to apply paint, stain, clear water repellent or other finishes to your preservative treated wood, we recommend following the manufacturer’s instructions of the chosen finishing product. Before you start, we recommend you apply the finishing product to a small test area before finishing the entire project to ensure it provides the intended result.

END SEAL Use an end coat preservative on all surfaces exposed by drilling or cutting.

FURTHER INFORMATION For further information and current range of finishing products available please contact: Cuprinol Ltd, Wexham Road, Slough, Berkshire, SL2 5DS, Tel 01753 550555, www.cuprinol.co.uk or Ronseal Ltd, Thorncliffe Park, Chapeltown, Sheffield, S35 2YP, Tel 0114 240 9469, www.ronseal.co.uk

n Mould growth can and does occur on the surface of many products, including treated or untreated wood, during prolonged surface exposure to excessive moisture conditions. To remove mould from treated wood surfaces, the wood should be allowed to dry and then washed with mild soap and water.

n Do not use preserved wood for mulch. n Only preserved wood that is visibly clean and free of surface residue should be used.

Commercial Balustrade

Clean, Contemporary, Cutting Edge

193


Commercial Balustrade FUSION® Commercial Stair Balustrade Beautifully elegant and deceptively simple. It’s what makes good design. And it’s what makes Fusion perfect for light commercial situations. It looks just as smart blending into a modern interior as it does giving a striking edge to a more traditional setting. Its mix of glass, steel and wood reflects current interior design trends; and its clean, cool lines give it a distinctive minimalist elegance. It’s easy to fit too, with a simple system of connectors and brackets, pre-cut balusters and pre-finished timber components, so once the rails and newels are cut to length the whole system simply slots together on-site.

ITS STRENGTH IS IN ITS COMPONENTS But the real beauty of Fusion is in its cleverly designed component system. Every element of the balustrade has been independently strength tested by TRADA to comply with relevant UK Building Regulations, demonstrating its suitability for stairways requiring loadings of 0.74kN/m. That makes it an ideal choice for shared access staircases such as those in offices, multi occupancy residential buildings and hotels.

FUSION® Commercial Outdoor Balustrade Strong. Stunning. Straightforward. Our Fusion Commercial Outdoor system is ideal for a wide variety of settings: bars and outdoor dining areas of course, but also balconies from sports clubs to hotels… virtually anywhere that has a view. And with the stylish Juliette balcony system, it’s perfect for townhouses and apartments, too. The strong minimalist metal frame with a choice of attractive timber balusters, smart glass panels or elegant slatted panels gives Fusion the design flexibility to create the perfect outdoor balustrade for any project.

All timber is hardwood, while metal components are either aluminium or zinc alloy, with brackets powder coated in silver. Clear panels are toughened glass, and the whole system easily satisfies all relevant UK Building Regulations.

NBS NBS Building Specifications contain pre-written technical specification clauses to produce project specifications. The clauses are authored by the NBS team of in-house architects and surveyors to be concise and robust and are arranged in accordance with the Common Arrangement of Work Sections.

CAD DRAWINGS

As the clauses are pre-written, very little typing is involved. Some may require additional information that can either be typed in or completed using drop-down suggestions. Clauses are provided for both prescriptive and performance specification.

Suitable for architects and specifiers, these cover all Richard Burbidge indoor balustrade components and configurations. They can be downloaded online from our website or from CD, available on request.

We offer NBS specifications for Fusion Commercial Stair Balustrade and Commercial Outdoor Balustrade, covering relevant Building Regulations plus individual component make up and materials.

CPD To help architects keep up-to-date, we currently offer a RIBA-approved course entitled ‘Specifying Internal Balustrade’ which counts towards your CPD requirements. Further courses are also being planned.

Case studies Cotman Residential Homes, Felixstowe This unique state-of-the-art, purpose built home with 41 bedrooms has utilized Fusion Commercial stair parts, outdoor balustrade and Juliette balconies on 3 internal stair cases, external balconies and external walkways. The mix of timber and metal on the internal systems gives a modern look, whilst the blend of timber, metal and glass outdoors maximizes the sense of space and makes full use of the stunning panoramic views.

Oak Lodge BUPA Nursing Home, Southampton Oak Lodge is a new, purpose-built care home that also provides specialist dementia care facilities for its elderly residents. A £5.7 million development, it needed a stylish and, above all, safe balustrade for its main staircase. Fusion Commercial proved an ideal choice, its minimalist oak handrails and sleek tubular balusters perfectly complementing the modern décor – while its availability off the shelf avoided lengthy lead times.
