Answer: 
The top tread attaches directly to the wall with 2 lag bolts/screws below the floor level of the loft. You may have to purchase special bolts/attachment screws if it is going to be attached into a steel beam.

Answer: 
This will be really dictated by the height of the installation when measured from the finished floor to the finished floor on the top level. The NICE 2 can be installed in as little a width of 25" and in a straight-line run installation it can be installed in 61" for the running length. The rise between treads in approximately 8" - 8 1/2". We recommend that you have an opening that will allow a minimum Read More
This will be really dictated by the height of the installation when measured from the finished floor to the finished floor on the top level. The NICE 2 can be installed in as little a width of 25" and in a straight-line run installation it can be installed in 61" for the running length. The rise between treads in approximately 8" - 8 1/2". We recommend that you have an opening that will allow a minimum of 6' 6" of headroom clearance to the ceiling when you are walking up and down the staircase kit. Based on these measurements, when you get to the 3rd tread from the bottom, you have approximately 43" remaining run of the staircase to the top level of a 9' installation. Based on this you should have adequate head room clearance based on the noted measurements in your inquiry. Please contact our Customer Sales & Support team via our email at info@arkestairs.com should you have additional questions or need further assistance in calculating the clearance. Read Less

Answer: 
The Nice 2 is designed only for interior installations as the hardware is not marine grade stainless steel and as a result will rust in the outdoor elements. The treads are not of the wood material to withstand the weather either. There are options available for exterior installation such as the Enduro or Eureka models.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for what I need, and who needs instructions... Overall, I am satisfied with the stairs. They feel a little cheap, but they are replacing a set of pull down stairs and they fit nicely into the space. However, they look great when installed and will accent the room nicely. The treads worry me a little as the wood is very soft. I laid a tread down on some milling from pre-drilling the holes and it left some scratches on the surface of the tread. I worry what they will look like after being walked on every day for a year? I have provided some help in installing that if followed will help you quite a bit. Check it out below. First of all, you can virtually throw the instructions away. I think the company should produce a video and show you how to build these, but a little common sense goes a long way in putting them together. A tip to anyone contemplating buying these. First off, if you are in the united states, throw away their wedge anchor and simply buy standard 1/2'' wedge anchors from Home Depot. It's virtually impossible to find the concrete drill bit they specify in the instructions and their wedge anchor provided is garbage. Secondly, in my case, I didn't use the template that came with it for the stairs. I simply put two of the stair stringers together and inserted the tread upside down and used a black marker to make my template locations ( don't rush this as you don't want to mark the wrong side of the tread. Also, when drilling the holes in the treads, place some duct tape or electrical tape on the surface to prevent splintering. The treads will splinter very badly otherwise. Also, I was able to use two 3/4'' ratchets when putting my stringers together, which will speed up installation. For drilling to a specific depth, try putting a piece of tape on your drill bit to mark the depth. When it comes to lifting the stairs into place, I purchased some smaller lag bolts and marked the location of two holes I wasn't going to use and lifted drilled those into the wall where the stairs were going to mount. That way I could easily lift the stringer into place and the lag bolts held nicely while I got the permanent lag bolts installed (which I also purchased separately. Final tip, don't buy or try to use a 6mm hex head. Either buy one for your ratchet or your drill. I did the ratchet as I didn't want to take a chance with stripping. Ok, two more tips... Don't anchor the bottom of the stairs until the very end. You can always loosen the bolts that hold it in place and drill your holes after you have made sure your treads are straight. Final trick I used was to place a laser on the side of the treads. In my case, the laser hit a wall 20' away. If all the treads were square with each other the laser pointer would hit the same location on the wall, just at higher heights as you went up the stairs. This made adjusting them very easy and assured they were square with each other. I'm sure there are some other tips and tricks I am leaving out, but if you follow these, you will easily cut a couple of hours off of your installation time. I finished in about 6 hours, but that included three trips to the local hardware store to buy wedge anchors, lag bolts and a 6mm bit for my ratchet. My nickname at the hardware store is "oh it's you again"... Good Luck! August 24, 2014
