Summary of Components


1 A landing module is required at the top of each flight (as the landing incorporates the top riser)

2 Shallow Stairway / Standard Stairway and Landing modules are available for the following gradients:
Shallow: 12°, 14°, 16°, 18°, 20°, 22°, 24°, 26°
Standard: 20°, 22°, 24°, 25°, 26°, 28°, 30°, 32°, 35°, 38°, 40°, 45°

3 The slope length per step for:
Shallow Stairway = 50cm (16 step flight = 8.00m)
Standard Stairway = 36cm (16 step flight = 5.76m)

4 The width of the stairway is:
Overall Width: 1m
Clear Width*: 92.5cm with a single handrail
85cm with two handrails
(* Handrails are bolted onto the stair treads)

5 Landings have a standard length of 1 metre. Alternative lengths are available for complex sites and longer lengths can be formed with extension plates. Landings and extension plates are available in the following lengths: 0.5m, 0.7m, 0.9m, 1.0m, and 1.1m. 0.5m landings are also used as single steps for Shallow Stairway

6 A dog-leg landing is formed by installing 2 landing modules side-by-side, with an additional safety barrier on the exposed edge

7 Handrails are 90cm high (min) and can be fitted to one or both sides of the stairway in pre-drilled holes. The standard stanchion spacings (slope length) are:
Shallow Stairway - alternate steps = 100cm
Standard Stairway - every 3rd step = 108cm

8 Safety barriers with knee rails are 110cm high and are fitted to one or both sides of landings

9 Stakes have been omitted for clarity. They are inserted through the overlaps and along the sides of the modules.
Permanent stairways are normally installed with 1m ribbed stakes in:
- every hole on the flights
- alternate holes along the sides of the landings
