The BWF Stair Scheme is the only accreditation and certification scheme of its kind in the UK. Ranging from domestic, common and fire protected common stairs, the standard expected of the manufacturers for their stairs is extremely high to ensure quality and safety.
The scheme now represents approximately 70% of the timber stair market, bringing together like-minded manufacturers who are committed to driving up standards in timber stairs to make the industry more competitive against rival materials and increase market share.

Ensuring High Standards

All companies within the scheme are regularly audited to ensure their products and their production meet these high standards, and fire tested for fire protected common stairs.

Accreditation means that every Scheme member’s design process and manufacturing operation has been independently verified and all members are required to meet the standards laid down by the BWF Code of Conduct. Members receive an audit visit on application and audited biennially from then on. BWF does not offer any guarantee on members work and cannot accept responsibility for any works undertaken by members of the scheme. If a problem arises we do have a dispute resolution process and details can be provided via
