Default Bannister heights


Hi..

Before I go out tomorrow & buy my bannister parts... What height do the
regs say they have to be? 900mm? Is that from the front, rear or middle
of the tread on the stairs? What lee way do you have? +- 25mm?


TIA

Hamish.

They have to be a minimum of 900mm when measuring vertically from the pitch
line. [This is the sloping line from the nose of one step to the next etc.]
I'm not aware of any maximum.

Also the spindles have to be positioned close enough together to prevent a
100mm sphere from passing through the gap.

'They' have to be balls (100 mm spheres) because
the NSPCC hollers when the BCO tries to jam
'Kalibrated Kiddies'' heads through the spindles.

Must be difficult getting trousers to fit you comfortably :-)

They're ok as long as they're "baggy". g
