We are an establishment that specialises in bespoke joinery. This is something we have been creating for over three decades. During this time, we have had the pleasure to design and build a number of useful products for our clients. This includes timber staircases as well as doors, windows, architectural joinery, and even garden gates and bridges. When it comes to quality, there is nothing quite like our offerings.
A timber staircase presents you with the chance to show off innovation, flair, and design. However, your passion to fabricate a centrepiece for your property should not ignore the considerations for safety. Stairs come with a risk of injury via falls, trips, and slips. A homeowner may be under the assumption that this won’t happen to them at all. Yet, the statistics paint a different picture. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, more than 300,000 people head to A&E each year due to accidents on the stairs.
Backwards and forwards
The majority of serious falls occur when people fall backwards and slip down the staircase. On occasion, there will be less serious incidents when someone falls forwards. This is because the injuries are typically not as severe. Carpets have the ability to reduce the seriousness of an incident. As for sharp edges, they are going to do the opposite.
It is possible to lower the number of accidents on staircases. You can do this by focusing your attention on those attributes of the stairs that influence the ability to safely use the stairs. The stairs’ geometry can affect the user’s capacity to put their feet safely on the stairs without slipping or tripping. You must consider things like tread height, depth, and more.
