A flush or an optional 5.75" handrail is available
for roof hatch applications.
The Lapeyre® stair features a unique alternating
tread design which provides greater tread depth
than vertical ladders or ship's ladders. This design
allows comfortable face forward descents at steep
angles. The stair includes close fitting handrails
which provide support and a cushioned central
stringer which virtually eliminates the possibility of
hitting the nosing of a tread.

The Lapeyre® aluminum alternating tread stair combines the safety features of
our unique, alternating tread design with the advantages aluminum has to offer.
Aluminum is ideal for exterior applications and for applications where weight is
a consideration. The cast aluminum treads are welded to the central stringer and
to the handrails, creating an all-in-one welded unit. An optional 3.75" handrail
is available for roof hatch applications.

INSTALLATION DETAILS
1. When ordering, specify the change in elevation (H) between the upper finished
floor surface where the top landing will
attach (A) and the lower finished floor
surface where the foot of the stair will be
secured (B). Be sure to take into account
the effects of a slopping lower floor.
2. A minimum of 6" (15.24 cm) should be
provided between the handrails and any
other object (a minimum of 12" (30.48 cm)
between handrails on two adjacent stairs).
More than 6" (15.24 cm) is preferred to
allow easier carrying of small objects out-
side the handrails.

3. Always install the stair with the top
tread at same elevation as the upper
finished floor or roof surface. For wall
parapets, contact us.

4. The stair is secured in place by bolts
(not included) at top and bottom.
