Choosing the right parts to incorporate into your stair’s design is a very critical decision to make. Everything should be chosen based on safety, function, and visual appeal. Safety is ensured when there are no sharp edges or abrasive surfaces found in the parts to be used. Function is dictated by how well the parts fit together, with no loose baluster or wobbly stair rails. The visual appeal is how the parts when incorporated into a single design will look. The resulting stairs should be coherent to the space where the stairs are installed. Its impact is seen on how well it blends with the existing furnishings or how it compliments the space’s design elements.
How does it work? The adjustable stair brackets are positioned on two 2x6’s -using a reusable spacing tool. The spacer is set using a chart which will give the exact setting for the rise and tread required for your project. Two screws are set in each bracket, attaching to the two 2x6’s. This forms a fully adjustable stringer which is then adjusted exactly to your stair requirements. Fixing screws are then inserted to lock the brackets in position. Two to three cuts total, top and bottom completes the stringer. Compared this to the dozens of cuts required for traditional construction. With this system, stairs can be built up to nine feet wide, using only the two outside stringers....no interior stringers required.
The stairs has long been a source of potential danger for humans and those that are mobility challenged, like sufferers of osteoarthritis, are at increased risk. To help reduce this risk there are several things that can be done by the stair user. One of the most important things to remember is that it is important to pay attention when you are climbing up and down the stairs Stairs can come in different shapes and sizes, so it is important to pay attention to the width and depth of the steps. It has been shown that a major factor in many stair accidents is as a result of the person on the stairs being distracted by environmental factors. It is important to maintain a well lit stairway and to pay attention as you ascend or descend the stairs.
Another way to avoid injuries when using stairs is to have a regular maintenance check-up. This only means that the stairs and its parts should be routinely checked to see if anything is missing, broken, and in need of repair. Poor maintenance of stairs can lead to all kinds of stair injuries. A missing baluster could be a potential danger for small children using the stairs, they could easily fall through the space where the missing baluster is located. A wobbly hand rail could spell disaster for those who hugely rely on them for balance and support, especially for the elderly, handicapped, and even small children. A loose stair tread is a major site for trips and mishaps. Anything found to be in need of repair should be fixed immediately. Anything beyond repair should be replaced and dealt with as soon as you can. All of these may seem tedious work, but will be well worth it. Always remember that having your stair injuries treated is more expensive than replacing or fixing your broken stairs.
