Richard Burbidge’s online planning tool STAIRPLANNER has been used by nearly 40,000 people in just 12 months, showing the sales opportunities that exist for stockists with stair balustrades.
Designed to make it quicker and easier to renovate staircases, STAIRPLANNER is available at www.richardburbidge.com and allows users to redesign their staircase in just nine simple steps, using the company’s full range of balustrade systems.
Stair Balustrade Product Manager Zoe Goff says: “Until now, there hasn’t been a quick and easy way of designing or refurbishing a staircase and finding out what parts you need. Once users have generated their plans and parts lists, they simply click through to find details of their nearest stockist.”
After confirming a few details including the staircase type, STAIRPLANNER invites users to choose from a range of options, including timbers, fixing methods and styles of spindle, handrail, newel and cap. Each selection is displayed on a ‘virtual staircase’ and STAIRPLANNER then generates plans, configuration drawings and fully priced parts lists, based on recommended retail prices
