Building codes for Well Designed Staircase

Staircase is commonly the well focal point of your home. Its style, shape and position depend on the available space. You can get it installed or manufactured keeping it simple or complex, straight or curve, wood or concrete, wide or narrow.  The specifications of a staircase principally depend on the general design and size of a place.

Building codes set a least for staircase width, but wider dimensions are also necessary. Other important considerations are listed below:

Square Footage

The total dimension being the length of the run length should occupy to complete the required rise. Staircases use noteworthy square footage by the time all the steps are placed, landings are located and headroom is cleared. As they require so much efficient staircase need to be designed. There should be a combination of comfort and efficiency that will fulfill the building code and increase the architectural look of the area.

Risers and Treads

The height of each riser is critical to stair design and width of each tread. All risers should be of exactly the same height so that they do not look awkward and to not difficult to ascend because we need proper rhythm to climb steps. Building codes also consent to equal height. The total height of the rise of a staircase is merely dependent on the height of the ceiling and depth of the upper floor. In case of taller ceiling more risers and treads are needed to make the staircase function.

Staircase Width

A width of a staircase of around 36 inch is mandatory for most building codes. This dimension actually depends on how the stairs will be used and if they will have an open railing or will be enclosed by walls. Make your staircase of about 48 inch if you want one person going up while one is coming down. An openhanded width and two landings make the staircase easy to navigate.
