What are double kite stairs?
Double kite staircases are loft stairs that have two turns in the design. These can be positioned in a number of different ways, with the first turn at the top, followed by another at the bottom, or with two turns in closer succession. Double kite staircases are often used very effectively for loft conversions.
What are the benefits of double kite stairs for your loft conversion?
So, why should you consider installing a double kite staircase for your loft conversion? Well, there are a number of benefits and advantages to choosing this type of loft conversion staircase, including:
- Unusual shapes- if your staircase area is not a usual space, the double turn design can help the stairs to fit around the existing architecture and allow a staircase to be installed where this may not be possible without using the double kite design.
- Saving space– the double kite design allows the stairs to turn twice, instead of being positioned straight from the loft hatch down into the space below. This means that less floor space is needed, and the staircase itself will take up less room.
What are the considerations for double kite stairs for your loft conversion?
There are a number of considerations to take into account when choosing this type of staircase design for your loft conversion. These considerations include:
- The regulations and standards- all loft staircases need to meet the width and height building requirements.
- Planning the turns- the double kite staircase needs to be designed specifically for the installation area.
