Stairs are one of the most complex, but undoubtedly important devices in the interior. Today’s technology and material abundance allows to choose the most acceptable option to taste, and of course, pocket.
Planning to furnish a home is often faced with the problem of how to choose the type of stairs, straight or twisted, with or without the axle, to make a landing or not. The type of stairs is often determined by the project of a house, which is already indicating a niche for stairs and their specific type. However, even in such cases, the space for the individuality remains. There is no one answer, which stairs to install, the same stairs in different places may look quite different.
Selecting the location of stairs the attention should be paid that there are no swing doors near them. The area where the frame will be fixed should not be heated. When installing stairs in the closed spaces, it should be regarded, if climbing the stairs the ceiling isn’t going to be too low – distance should be at least 2 m. Stairs should be installed before or after the floor is laid, wall preparation for home decoration, or in other words, when the house microclimate is balanced out. Now the staircase is designed by computer programs, and one should not rely on the ladder manufacturers working on old methods.
Types of stairs
The most functional, but occupying the most space are straight stairs. Of course, the space under such stairs can be used for a closed room or it can be used in some other way. One of the most frequently installed stairs are L-shaped (90 degrees). U-turn (180 degrees) stairs, especially with a landing, are comfortable enough. Twisted spiral staircase takes up relatively little space.
The production of stairs and railings begins with a project. Architectural standard of interior stairs is 17/29, that is, optimum step width is 29 cm and the height – 17 cm. Stairs often do not fit into the objective architectural standard, so other standards according to the stairs steepness categories are applied. The stair-step rule is applied to the design of the stairs. Usually a walking person makes about 63 cm step. Exactly the same size is the indicative in the stair-step rule. Significant deviations from this dimension will make your stairs very uncomfortable.
Reinforced concrete stair frames
The installation of any stairs starts with the spine – the so-called ladder frame (strings), on which a stage with handrails are mounted. The frame will determine the style, if they are of high quality and durable, or just the opposite – will raise permanent dissatisfaction.
Our core business is the manufacture of concrete stair frames. There are also many types of reinforced concrete frames: narrow in the middle with a flat bottom, narrow in the middle with the serrated bottom, as well, with an even and serrated bottoms, spiral stairs. To avoid mistakes and miscommunication with clients, the production of stairs is carried out in phases: stair opening measurement, stair design, stair computer visualization, installation of the stair concrete construction. They are necessary for the stairs of high quality. “Pajūrio laiptai” designs the stairs under the existing stairway and makes precise visualizations for the customer to see the details of future stairs so that if something is not suitable, it would be easy to change when it is easy and does not cost anything, but not when the stairs are already installed. Reinforced concrete frame is to be installed at an early stage of construction, so that it could lead up to the second floor.
