The BWF Stair Scheme exists to promote the principle that stair safety depends on the quality of design, specification and installation.
All Scheme members are accredited via the BWF and are regularly audited to ensure they have the required systems and processes in place to demonstrate that their stairs are compliant with building regulations. Each accredited member gets to apply the Stair Scheme badge to their stairs to demonstrate their commitment to well designed, well manufactured, safe stairs.
To drive standards and to position themselves as experts in stair design and manufacture, the BWF Stair Scheme members have contributed to a number of practical guides.
These guides are promoted to a variety of audiences encompassing housebuilders and developers, architects, building control, local authority specifiers and homeowners.
