Stair Flights

Category Information

Available in different rises and widths, Howarth Timber & Building Supplies have a range of Straight Flight Staircases that will suit every home. 

What is a Flight? 

When talking about stairs, a “flight” means a series of steps that are not interrupted by a landing or a turn. Therefore most flights of stairs will be straight, except for in the case of spiral stairs. 

How many steps does a Straight Flight have? 

In commercial and business properties, such as offices and shops, the number of steps tends to be 16. However, when it comes to private residences, there is no specific number, but in most homes, the number of steps – sometimes referred to as “Risers” – is less than the stated 16. Some short Straight Steps can have as little as two steps. 

Stairs Standards 

Performance is hugely important when it comes to stairs, and timber will need to be tested to ensure that it can withstand the pressures that stairs come under. The British Woodworking Federation do list recommended species for use as stairs, however, their list is not “exhaustive and any timer can be used as long as it has been fully tested.
