Staircase Understairs. Tuesday , October 16th , 2018 - 01:52:57 AM
The cut strings of curved and splayed staircases will be cut to accommodate the shape of the treads and risers. The strings are connected to the treads and risers of the stairs by three-way mitre joints to provide the staircase with additional strength. The cut strings of a staircase can be further embellished by adding return nosings to conceal the end grain of the treads to provide a clean, smooth and finished look. A return nosing is a rounded moulding used to trim the treads.
If you prefer carpet to bare wood or glass, make sure you buy one that's suitable for stairs. 'It's imperative you choose a quality, hard-wearing carpet - 80 per cent wool to 20 per cent nylon,' says Rupert Anton, marketing director of The Carpet Foundation. 'Avoid loop-pile carpets as they "grin" (open up when bent) and are more slippery.' Use a good underlay over both tread and riser and fit the carpet so the pile runs down the stairs. It's also possible to use a strip of carpet as a runner. Look at Ryalux, which does carpet to your width. For runners, see Roger Oates or The Carpet Library's Hartley runners, which are reversible so last twice as long.
Remember also that plans must comply with building regulations, specifically the Approved Document K or Protection, Falling and Impact, and in particular section K1, which deals with stairs, ladders and ramps. You can download it free from staircases.orgregulations.htm
