The UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of timber products, Richard Burbidge, has launched a new ready primed collection of stairparts to provide a better finish in less time.

Richard Burbidge is a family-run business and leading supplier of stairparts, mouldings and decking accessories. The brand’s latest collection introduces a full range of PaintReady stairparts, which arrive ready for fitting, with no sanding, filling or priming needed.

The ready primed products provide a cost-effective and time-saving solution for staircase renovations, with a new water-based primer which all helps to give a smoother, faster finish. This includes all 32mm and 41mm plain and top chamfer styles, handrails, baserails, 90mm newels, as well as a variety of caps, including the brand’s latest product additions, the new shadow caps.

Available in Radiata Pine, keeping in line with Richard Burbidge’s sustainable values, the timber is FSC certified and has been strength tested for Domestic Regulations. The product has also been independently tested by FIRA and conforms with Building Regulations for balustrades at 900mm high and 0.36kN/m domestic loadings.

The collection has the added benefit of less time required on-site due to the little preparation required and a higher quality in the finish. Estimating just one less day to install and finish the job, the products are coated with a super smooth water-based primer to provide the perfect surface for paint and final finishing. This means no sanding, filling or priming required.

It can also be mixed and matched with other collections from the full Richard Burbidge range, including mixing natural oak with painted stairparts.

Zoe Goff, Product Manager at Richard Burbidge, comments: “Our new PaintReady collection is a great option for those looking for a cost-effective staircase renovation. We are really pleased to bring these ready primed products to the market to deliver exactly what the customer and consumers wants – less time on site, no sanding, no filling and no priming, providing a faster and smoother finish.”
