Remove the stair from the shipping container and place it on a solid, flat surface.

Attach the handrails STEEL stairs only, alumninum stairs ship with handrails already attached

Check the orientation of the handrails; the welds that connect the balusters should face inward. FIGURE 1

Use the supplied bolts, lock washers, and flat washers to loosely attach the handrails to the stair. FIGURE 2

Ensure that the top baluster of the stair is perpendicular to the landing and tighten the baluster bolt to secure the rail into place. FIGURE 3

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION RELATED TO ALTERNATING TREAD STAIR INSTALLATIONS
Handrail clearance

Alternating tread stairs should be installed with a minimum of 6" of clearance from the outside of the handrail to any other objects. When installing two alternating tread stairs side-by-side there should be a minimum of 12" between the handrails of each stair.

Bracing

We recommend bracing alternating tread stairs that are 15 feet or taller to reduce potential swaying and/or vibrations.
