Kya Spacesaving Stair Kit General details

The Kya Spacesaver Stair is the brand new space saver staircase brought to you from Arke. By the use of specially shaped "alternate treads", the Kya spacesaver stair 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 Kya 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 with a curve.

The Kya Spacesaver stair is supplied in three colours - Black, White or Grey - all with beautiful thick Beech treads available in a choice of Dark or Light Lacquer. The design details are black for the black stair and grey for the grey and white staircases. The wood-effect handrail is in PVC with an aluminum core and is available in light or dark versions, to match the shade of the treads.

And look at the totally stylish stainless steel cable balustrades. Please note that the gap between the cables may be more than 100mm and this design of balustrading may be considered "climbable" by your local Building Control Department.

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.

The Kya stair 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 regarding the maximum tread rise, 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.

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

We also supply additional handrailing for the second side of the stairs if the Kya is to be installed away from a wall. Also available is matching balustrading for around the stairwell for the perfect finishing touch. The stairwell balustrade kits are supplied in 1200mm lengths and are complete with handrail and all fixings.

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. This design of balustrading may not be acceptable to your local Authority.

Everything you need to install the Kya spacesaver stair - all fixings and fittings, plus clear installation instructions and an installation DVD, is included in the kit! It is delivered direct to you from Italy and usually takes 10 working days.

If you would like further information on the staircase and the fitting details including size and configuration details plus the reference to the spacesaver staircases in the Building Regulations, go to the Advice & Downloads pages. If you would like any advice - we've got it!
