| The Vector Modular Staircase kit can be installed with a clockwise or anti-clockwise turn using the quarter turn set of treads. You decide when you fit the staircase! |
Generally, it is best to form the opening for the staircase at least as big as the staircase layout itself.
The standard kit has 13 risers (12 treads) and the tread rise is adjustable from 180mm to 235mm, although UK regulations have a maximum tread rise of 220mm. This means that the standard kit will suit floor to floor heights of up to 3025mm (or 2845mm to comply with UK Building Regulations). If your floor to floor height is higher than this, you simply need to add additional tread kits as required. See the Accessories page for more information. If your floor to floor height is lower than this, you use less treads.
The individual tread rise is adjusted by adding ingenious shims between each tread to provide your overall correct staircase height. These are supplied in the kit, together with all fixings and fittings required plus clear installation instructions and an installation DVD!
The going or depth of the treads is adjustable on the Vector staircase from 200mm to 230mm but the UK Building Regulations require a minimum tread going of 220mm and your chosen configuration should bear this in mind.
The design of the balustrading on the Vector may not be acceptable to your local Building Control Department and we always recommend that you discuss the staircase with them before purchasing. Powder coated steel riserbars are available as an accessory kit to fit between the open treads to satisfy the requirement for the gap to be less than 100mm.
Delivery timescales are approx 10 working days.
