STYLE OF STAIRCASE CONSTRUCTION
At CPR Staircases we manufacture our standard closed riser staircases using the traditional English method. This style of construction involves the use of glue blocks and wedges. The glue blocks are nailed to the underneath side at the intersecting point where the tread and riser meet. The wedges are fixed firmly into the underside of each tread and the back face of the riser.
1. Various paint companies have introduced a paintable product that you apply directly to your staircase treads that makes it compliant with anti-slip requirements. For more information on these products, please contact individual paint suppliers direct.
2. Anti-slip strip tape can be adhered to the front edge of each tread.
3. Asbraloy recessed slip resistant safety tread insert with silicon carbide mineral inserts can be recessed into the front edge of timber treads.
