With proper installation, your Lapeyre stair will give you many years of maintenance-free service.
Attaching Handrail
1) Remove the Lapeyre stair from the shipping container and lay on a solid, flat surface.


2) MAKE SURE THE HANDRAILS NARROW TOWARD THE CENTER OF THE STAIR. Using the supplied 1/2"-13x1-1/2" bolts, lock washers and rectangular flat washers, attach handrails to the stair. The bolts should be tightened to 35 ft-lbs.


Handrail Clearance
When placing the stair, a minimum of 6" should be provided between the handrails and any other object (a minimum of 12" between handrails on two adjacent stairs).


Installation
1) Install the stair with the top tread at the same elevation as the upper finished floor or roof surface.


2) Prepare the mounting holes for the stair, using the bolt pattern shown, at right, as a guide.


3) Put in position and securely bolt both the landing (top) and footing (bottom) of the stair. Bolts are not provided. Use bolts or studs (minimum 1/2" diameter).


4) If the stair is 15' or taller, you should install bracing to prevent vibration.
