Marching wooden stairs and their distinctive featuresJanuary 27, 2018
Despite the rather large variety of different types of ladders, their designs, as a rule, are usually divided into only two main types - sustainer and screw. In this case, the first type of stairs, for quite a long time is the most common option.
Such a name, such structures acquired directly from the name of the flights of stairs with steps, which are called marches. Ladders of this type can have several such spans in their construction, connected with the help of special horizontal platforms. So, in country multi-level buildings most often used wooden stair structures, consisting, as a rule, of two or three marches.
The main types of mid-flight stair designs
Marching wooden stairs are most often carried out in the form of straight, swing or swing structures. Stairs of direct type are usually meant structures, in which all the spans are located strictly in one direction, and under a turning view - structures, where each subsequent march is in relation to the previous one at certain angles. As for a more exotic swing type of stairs, their first flight to the lower part begins to gradually expand in both directions. Such a solution is considered the best option for arranging exclusive modern interiors.
Nowadays, the installation of marching wooden stairs is most often done with the help of special kosour, bowstrings or boltsev. By a kosour, we usually mean a special support beam, to which the steps themselves are directly attached to the top. The string, in principle, is the same as an inclined beam, but the steps to it, unlike the first option, are attached exclusively from the inside.The fastening of the steps, in a similar situation, can also be carried out with the help of bolts - special bolts connecting them into a single structure. The use of such a solution allows you to make the ladder as if floating in the air, which, naturally, looks very elegant and spectacular.
Utilization of a useful space
The main disadvantage of this type of stairs, usually lies in the very non-optimal use of useful space in the room. This is due to the fact that such marching structures are most often installed directly along the walls, which is why a certain part of the room is automatically excluded from use. However, if desired, this space can be quite easily subjected to a very rational arrangement. So, for example, directly under the stairs it will be quite possible to arrange a fairly comfortable workplace, or simply install a sofa there and make a reasonably comfortable seating area.
