Karina Spacesaver Stair Kit General Details



The Karina is supplied with 11 treads (12 risers) and will suit a floor to floor height of up to 2640mm while complying with UK Building Regulations, or it can fit up to 2820mm without complying with UK regulations. The height is variable by adjusting the individual tread rises which can be set from a tread rise of 190mm to 235mm (but UK Building Regulations have a maximum tread rise of 220mm). If your floor to floor height is lower than this, then just use less treads. If it is higher, then you can add a maximum of two additional treads but please note that the additional treads are always right-handed (or right-footed!). If you order one additional tread, it will go at the bottom of the flight and if you order two, you will put one at the bottom and one at the top.

The Karina can be installed in a straight flight or with a curve (clockwise or anti-clockwise) as shown in the diagram below.

The Karina can be installed with a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation and you decide this when you're installing the staircase.


The Karina Spacesaver Stair Kit is a masterpiece of design and functionality! By the use of specially shaped "alternate treads", the Karina takes up the minimum amount of space for a staircase and is a brilliant solution for access to your loft conversion, mezzanine floor or sleeping platform. The Karina will fit into a floor space of 1550mm x 600mm - a little over half the space of a regular staircase and can be installed in a straight flight or a curve.

The Karina Spacesaver stair is supplied in three colours of powder coated steel - Black, White or Grey - all with beautiful thick Beech paddle-shaped treads available in a choice of Dark or Light Lacquer. The design details are supplied in black for the black staircase and grey for the grey and white staircases.

PLEASE NOTE: It is your responsibility to ensure that any Local Authority approvals necessary have been obtained. This will vary according to your application and we advise you to always check before going ahead with a purchase.
