All our timber is sustainably sourced in compliance with the practices agreed
with the British Woodworking Federation (BWF).

or laminated timber for use in stairs should meet the
requirements of BS EN 942. Below are some of the timbers most commonly used to
manufacture our stair components:

providing stronger dimensional stability.

Knotty
Redwood knotty timber allows for a high quality finish. Knots
are visible in this type of timber, which need treatment before
finishing.

Finger Jointed
Finger jointed engineered timber has all the benefits of being a
natural material, except it has all natural defects removed such as
knots and splits. The engineering of the component reduces the
risk of twisting and warping, allowing the product to operate as
designed.

Laminated engineered
Laminated timber is another form of engineered timber with
finger joints. The timber has knots and splits removed from the
component and it is laminated with glue under high pressure,
producing a stable and strong component.
Scandinavian Redwood (Pinus Sylvestris)
Fire protected timber
Where required, JELD-WEN’s communal stairs are treated with the This is the most common timber used to manufacture

Storage
Stair components should be stored in a dry place slightly raised
from the ground, adequately protected from the weather and
extremes of temperature. As with all internal joinery, stairs should
not be fitted in a building which has not adequately dried out.
Failure to maintain the moisture content as delivered will have a
seriously detrimental effect on the stairs and how they fit.
Long items should be kept flat on bearers. If components are
delivered for more than one stair, store the parts for each stair

Knuckle clearance
Handrails must be placed to provide a minimum knuckle clearance
from the nearest adjacent surface, so as to facilitate a safe hand hold
throughout the length of the handrail with no finger traps.

In the example shown above, a stair with a parallel landing return, the
balustrade mounted handrail is positioned to achieve a 32mm knuckle
clearance between the handrail and the adjacent landing nosing.

INSTALLATION OF STRAIGHT
FLIGHTS BETWEEN WALLS
Temporary access does not mean temporary fixing!
A staircase will not be able to provide its full support until it is
installed completely with all fixings in place.

• No load should be applied to the trunk


with only the birdsmouth detail placed
onto the trimmer. This is a non-structural
element of the staircase and can cause
failure of the strings if unsupported.

BEFORE a staircase is used for access between storeys, the trunk


should be fully installed and capable of supporting its intended
loads with all fixings, packers and supports in place. If one of the
supporting walls are not present at time of installation, alternative
support and propping to the trunk MUST be provided.

STAIR LAYOUTS
SCOTLAND
The most popular stair layouts designed to Scottish Regulations
are listed on the following pages together with the critical
dimensions relevant to each design including the trimming
dimension necessary to obtain headroom clearance.

Our stair layouts are designed to satisfy the required geometry


of a private stair in Scotland which is as follows:
•M
 inimum rise: 100mm; Maximum rise: 220mm;
Minimum going: 225mm;
• Maximum pitch: 42º.

Our layouts have been designed to provide an effective width


of 800mm, measured between handrails, where a continuous
handrail is fitted to both sides of a flight. Alternatively, where
there is no wall mounted handrail allowed for, layouts have
been designed to provide 900mm between any walls or
protective barriers / balustrade. The projection of any stringer or
newel post should not intrude more than 30mm into this width.

Our specialist stairs team is always on hand to offer help and


advice on any aspect of design, construction or the Scottish
Technical Handbook. You can contact them on 0845 122 2894.

Upstanding and unbeatable quality. When you look good you feel good.
But it’s not all about good looks. What lies beneath the surface matters too,
which is why we’ve built the Prestige range using the finest timbers.
With over a century of experience at crafting stairs we know how
important first impressions are. The classic, cool tread of our oak
staircase creates a grand entrance. For a more colourful impact,
the earthy glow of our redwood finished stairs will add a touch
of real warmth. Both ranges fit in perfectly with classic or
modern décor. Oak Redwood

Basement stairs
If an escape stair forms part of the only escape route from a
building it should not be continued down to serve a basement.
A separate stair should serve the basement.
If there is more than one escape stair from a building only one
of the stairs serving the upper storeys need to be terminated at
ground level. Other stairs may connect with the basement if there
is a protected lobby, or a protected corridor between the stair(s)
and accommodation at each basement level. Refer to Building
Regulations for more details.

Handrails for communal stairs


Stairs should have a handrail on one side if they are less than 1m
wide. They should have a handrail on both sides if they are wider.
Handrails should be provided beside the two bottom steps where
stairs are intended to be used by people with disabilities (AD M).
In all buildings handrail heights should be between 900mm and
1000mm measured to the top of the handrail from the pitch line
or floor.
Guarding must be capable or resisting at least the horizontal force
given in BS 6399: Part 1: 1996. For further guidance on design of
barriers and infill panels refer to BS 6180: 1995 Code of practice
for protective barriers in and about buildings.

Loading of balustrades
At JELD-WEN we independently load test our balustrades in
accordance with BS 6399-1:1996, clause 10, which specifies a
uniformly distributed line load for the barrier and a uniformly
distributed and point load applied to the infill. JELD-WEN
communal stairs meet and exceed the requirements shown below:

Horizontal loads to handrails and balusters


Test load Usage Type 1 Usage Type 2 & 3
Horizontal UDL to handrail 0.36 kN/m run 0.74 kN/m run

FIRE PROTECTED COMMUNAL
Fire protected communal stairs may be required in multi-occupancy buildings if they act as
an escape route in the event of a fire. So it is vital that it is able to resist the effects of the
fire and remain its integrity after the fire has gone out.

High standards Fire testing fire protected stair:
JELD-WEN has worked hard to drive up standards within
the industry and are the only volume manufacturer to be
independently certified by the British Woodworking Federation
(BWF) and the BRE Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB)
for fire protected stairs. The LPCB tests and verifies designs,
performance, manufacturing process and quality assurance
throughout manufacture to establish whether the timber stairs
are serviceable and an effective means of escape, even after an
extremely hazardous fire.
Where required, JELD-WEN’s communal stairs are treated with the
Envirograph ES/VFR Fire Retardant Coating System, and tested to
BS 476: Part 6: 1989, Class O for fire propagation and BS 476:
Part 7: 1987, Class I for surface spread of flame.
Manufacturers offering fire protected stairs have to demonstrate

that their stairs comply with the requirements for fire protection
under the test method set out by BD2569 Fire Performance of
Escape Stairs – Guidance Document (Department of Communities
and Local Government, 2009).
The LPCB audits the manufacturing process and quality assurance
throughout manufacture to establish whether the timber stairs
are serviceable and an effective means of escape, even after an
extremely hazardous fire.
JELD-WEN is the only UK manufacturer to be certified for fire
protected stairs. Our stairs proved to be capable of carrying a
static load of 270kg in weight after the fire test, which confirmed
they are suitable for use as escape stairs, providing a safe route
out of a multi-storey building.

BALUSTRADE
SOLUTIONS
With increasing pressure on timescales for new build projects,
JELD-WEN have developed several balustrading solutions to
speed up installation and provide temporary measures
during the construction process.

62 For more information contact us on 0845 122 2894


DEMOUNTABLE
BALUSTRADE
With the increase in town-house style developments, where
space is at a premium, JELD-WEN can provide a demountable
balustrade - meaning the balustrade can be simply removed to
allow large items to be moved up and down the staircase.
The balustrade can then be secured back into place.

Four easy steps:

Demountable balustrade
unclipped and removed

1 Important: The demountable balustrade is a temporary measure.


You should ensure that the stairwells are adequately protected at
all times to prevent accidents occurring.

PRE-ASSEMBLED
BALUSTRADE
JELD-WEN offers factory assembled balustrading, to ensure a
quick and easy fix on site. All our balustrade components arrive
fully assembled so there is no need for time consuming sawing
and cutting. Simply slot the balustrade into place and secure.

www.jeld-wen.co.uk BALUSTRADE SOLUTIONS 63


TEMPORARY GUARDRAIL
In new build properties safety on site is crucial at all times. At JELD-WEN we have
developed a simple temporary guardrail and edge protection solution to provide
additional safety measures while properties are under construction.
During construction the new staircase strings, treads, risers and newel posts are secured in place at the first fix stage, and temporary safety
measures will be required to remove the risk of falling prior to the second fix of the baluster and spindles.
Our temporary guardrail and edge protection provides a temporary safety barrier both up the stairs and across landings that alleviates the
risk of falling, whilst allowing access for materials to be moved easily up the stairs.
Testing has been conducted for the resistance against static loading in accordance with BS EN 13374: 2013 Class A.
