Spiral staircases are great space-savers and can easily transform the feel of a property. However, as with any renovation, incorporating one into a home means following a strict set of regulations to ensure safety. Following building codes can be a bit intimidating, which is why Salter Spiral Stair, a spiral staircase manufacturer, has put together an easy-to-understand outline of standard regulations in the form of an e-book that builders and homeowners can download for free on their website.
"There are some nationally-enforced codes and there are some codes that are specific to different regions," says Sam Saxton, CEO of Salter Spiral Stair. "Even though that can make it a bit tricky, it's important to follow these regulations to protect your investment and to ensure that a property is safe for its occupants." The e-book is specifically designed to be convenient and concise, making the process of implementing a spiral staircase an easier task.
Some of the nationally enforced rules include ensuring that the staircase is wide enough to provide a clear walking path, that the staircase's treads are identical, and that there is enough headroom. There are also regulations that apply to the width of the landing, the guardrails, the handrail sizes, and more. All of the regulations are clearly depicted in the e-book, which can be viewed online or downloaded instantly for free.
