Choosing Stairs

Posted by Juan on February 21, 2012 with Comments Closedas ,

Already at the stage of designing the house to prepare and discuss options for the stairs, so that it was convenient and comfortable for all occupants. Production of stairs, is a laborious process that requires a certain dexterity and skill. Very often during the construction placed a temporary metal frame ladder, and then, without distinction, his attempt to sheathe the tree. But this problem is difficult to implement, and would be cheaper to order a one-piece wooden staircase. A large area of the house, allows you to put solid concrete staircase.

And in the future zadekorirovat it to your liking. If the space for a ladder is not enough, we can provide U-shaped or screw with a triangular steps. But we should remember that the angle for a ladder must be about 35-40 , the maximum angle should not exceed 45 . Matter of convenience stairs, this addition also a security issue. Therefore, the ladder must have fencing. The distance between the balusters should be between 150 mm and the height of fences shall be not less than 850 millimeters. Recommended step width for stairs is 250-300 mm. On the security setting is also a great influence provides material levels.

For example, if they are made of smooth polished stone, it is worth the additional lay carpet, and fix it with special holders. The classic material for the steps already long time, is wood and stone. Currently there and ceramic monolithic step for facing ladders. Of course, building a ladder, it is important to use high-quality and safe materials. Wooden steps, as should normally be glued from separate bars which are placed on special technology. Stone can be used only cut from blocks, as well as the produced explosive way, sooner or later manifest itself cracks. Choosing material for a ladder, you need to do working drawings and full specifications of all the details of which it is made. Materials for the manufacture of the following steps: the pillars at the beginning and end of each march between them should be charged, followed by the balusters, and behind them the stages already. If the staircase is composed entirely of wood, then began to produce "bowstring", that is the basis. Rigidity of construction fencing provide supporting columns, section 80-120 mm, and the handrail. Balusters mostly bear decorative fencing function. It is worth a lot of attention paid to color and the staircase, he usually gets to the color of windows, doors, etc. In Later, if he does not like it, the cost of replacement is approximately the amount of new stairs. Since the ladder will have to dismantle, wash off the paint, sanded, painted and mounted again. Proper use of ladders – is another important component in the selection. It is not necessary to install the stairs in a closed room, where nobody lives, humidity drops them down to 0% and, consequently, the tree dries out, and the stairs just come into disrepair.
