As part of a wider home renovation project, the Compatta space saving staircase was an ideal solution for a residential home.
The opening or the landing in the house weren’t large enough for a full-size staircase or spiral stairs. As such, it needed a space saving solution. Given the prominent location of the staircase, they needed to look good. Safety was also a key consideration. With a young child, it was important that the new staircase minimised any risk of falling between gaps and featured handrails.
Full details of the dimensions were given to Premier Loft Ladders, as well as a few photos of the existing opening and landing. These were then used to determine the ideal stair arrangement. A straight run with 10 treads was optimum in this instance.
To complement the colour scheme of their home the white finish for the structure and the natural Beech finish was chosen for the treads and handrail. In addition, the new loft stairs were fitted with ‘safety riser bars‘. These are fitted to the underside of the treads and prevent a 100 mm sphere (e.g. a baby or small child) from passing through the gap. Also, because of the distance between the staircase and the wall, handrails were fitted to both sides.
The conversion of the loft into a usable family was a key part of the renovation project. Gaining safe and easy access to the new room was important. However, with limited space for the loft conversion stairs, the best solution was the Compatta alternating tread staircase. The Compatta loft stairs fit perfectly within the available space.
