Stair Vignette - Dimensions

Postby arubin » Tue Nov 07, 2017 4:54 pm

I'm wondering about dimensions for stairs. Based on the NCARB vignette, the min width of stairs (including handrails) appears to be 44". I'm showing all stairs as 48" (including handrails) - just to be safe. Would this be a downgrade? Would you recommend this?

Also, I am assuming all landings should be 5' x 5' when there's any change in direction - does this make sense to assume? Or am I conflating this with the Ramp Vignette? If it's oversized, would this be a downgrade? Would you recommend it still?

Otherwise, does this look okay? I am testing Friday, so any information would be helpful! Thank you!

Read the entire program, especially the last line about AOR.

Also, I am assuming all landings should be 5' x 5' when there's any change in direction - does this make sense to assume? NEVER assume. The program and code will be very clear and could be different from the practice program.Or am I conflating this with the Ramp Vignette? If it's oversized, would this be a downgrade?

Failing solution. Stair is too narrow.
