Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Australian standard for steps?
The construction of steps and stairs must comply with the regulations set by the Building Code of Australia. As indicated in this set of rules, the number of risers in each flight of stars should not be less than two and must not exceed 18. These risers are required not to have openings that are big enough to allow a 125 millimetres spherical object to pass through between the threads.
In addition, the treads must be equipped with a non-slip surface and nosing strip. They should also be made from sturdy materials if the stairway is over 10 metres high or if it connects more than three storeys.
The risers and goings within the same flight of stairs should also follow the same set of dimensions. For instance, each rise should be between 130 and 225 millimetres. Each going should be between 215 and 355 millimetres.
What is the minimum width for stairs?
The width of a staircase, which is the size of the space between its two handrails, should not be less than 600 millimetres. Also, its angle of pitch should be between 26.5 and 45 degrees.
How many steps can you have before a landing?
In stairways, a landing refers to a level platform or floor that’s situated in the area where the direction of the stairs changes. It is usually located between the flights of a stairway.
Buildings with multiple storeys are required to have landings. Generally, utility stairs should have a maximum of 16 risers before a landing. As for general access stairs, there should be a maximum of 12 risers before a landing.
What is the maximum height of a step?
In Australia, rises and goings of a staircase are required to have uniform dimensions. Each rise must be about 130 to 225 millimetres; each going should measure between 215 and 355 millimetres.
Is it illegal to have stairs without handrails?
Stairways with a height of over a metre, or those that have more than two steps are required by the Building Code of Australia to have at least one handrail. This added safety feature will also have to comply with the requirements set by the Disability Discrimination Act.
Aside from providing safety to the general public, having properly built stairways will also help you avoid potential issues related to building code violations.
