With proper installation, your Lapeyre stair will give you many years of maintenance-free service.
1) Assemble the stair according to the stair assembly instruction sheet.

2) Attach the guard rails to the platform using the supplied 1/2"-13 x 1-1/2" bolts, lock washers, and flat washers. Bolts should be tightened to 35 ft-lbs.

3) At this point, you may paint or coat the platform if desired.

4) Attach the stair to the platform using the 1/2"-13 x 1-1/2" bolts, lock washers, flat washers, and nuts supplied by Lapeyre Stair.

5) It is extremely important for the vertical stability of the platform that the handrail clamps be installed properly. Place the clamps as high as possible on the rail, as shown. Using a 1/2" socket and ratchet, tighten to 20 ft-lbs.

6) Prepare the floor mounting holes in the building site. As a guide, use the bolt pattern for the footing shown on the stair instruction sheet.

7) Position the unit as required. Using studs or bolts (minimum 1/2" diameter), secure the stair in place.

8) Lapeyre Stair recommends customer supplied sway bracing to insure the stability of the platform unit. Use 1/2" diameter bolts to secure 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" x 3/16" angle braces to the platform and an immovable object. Mounting holes are provided in several locations for your convenience.
