Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How steep will my stairs be?
Building regulations state that a domestic staircase should be no steeper than 42 degrees. A domestic or private stair means it is intended to be used for only one dwelling. If the staircase is communal, it has to comply to different regulations.
Q. What are winders?
Winders are tapered treads. Their purpose is for when a change of direction is required within a staircase. This can be achieved with winders, so as you turn a corner, you are also climbing. The main advantage of winders is that complete staircase takes up less room than a flight with flat quarter turn landings.
Q. How far apart will the spindles be?
Building regulations state that a 100-mm sphere must not pass anywhere through the staircase guarding.
Q. Can I have an open plan staircase?
Yes, however the gaps between the risers have to be closed somehow, either with a small stub riser or a bar. This is because building regulations state that a 100-mm sphere cannot pass through any part of the staircase.
