About Us

Hare Wall Panelling was formed in 1989 as Hare Wood Products by Derick Hare to provide specialist products for the staircase manufacturing industry.

In 2005 the business was incorporated and began trading as Banisters Ltd. Also in 2005, Banisters moved to a new site close to the M1 on the East side of Leeds, from where they distributed throughout the UK and Eire.

In the first 6 months of 2007, over 20,000 staircases fitted in the UK and Ireland incorporated components supplied by Banisters Ltd.

In 2012, Derick Hare, the founder of the company retired and asked us, Tim and Sarah Sharp to take over the wall panelling part of the business. Tim had been working with Derick for many years, designing his original website in 2001.

Tim’s background in architecture and web design and Sarah’s backgound in Mail order were ideally suited to take over the all online mail order panelling business.

Our aims are always to provide the same very high quality service that customers were used to from Banisters/Hare Wood Products and build up awareness of the wall panelling system. We still have 4 day a week jobs (Tim as a technical illustrator, Sarah as a teacher), but the goal is to build up sales to a point where we can concentrate full time on the panelling business.

If you have any questions or concerns about any aspect whatever of our products, please contact us. We are totally committed to customer satisfaction and thrive on your feedback!
