Asked by Jake November 2, 2020

Answer

The distance from front to back of the installed Karina staircase kit is dependent on the height of the installation. For an installation of 110" using the 11 treads in the standard kit in a straight line run, the distance is 61" for the run of the staircase.

There is no landing platform for the KARINA staircase kit. The last tread is connected to the flat facia wall at the top of the stair installation so you will step from the top floor onto the top step. Please contact our Customer Sales & Support team via our toll free telephone number at (888) 782-4758 and our team can send you product data sheets that illustrate the installation and multiple configurations that the staircase can be installed.

Handrail

Asked by Krystle June 27, 2019
2
Answers

The rail can be installed on either side of the stair as long as you attach to the part of the tread intended for use as the step (wide part of tread). Probably not something the manufacturer would recommend and it may (probably) would reduce the overall rigidity of the handrail since top end of the final (top) rail piece would normally be anchored to something to provide the designed rigidity.

Can it be "turned" at any point? Need to come down approximately 8 steps then turn to go another ...

Asked by jeddle June 8, 2019

Answers

Apparently so from what the instructions indicate. However, the maximum turn is limited and you would need to carefully verify if the final 3 steps would give you enough "turn" to provide the configuration you desire.

These were perfect for the loft apartment being built for me. They were pretty easy to install and it took about a day for the entire project from start to finish. They are very custimizable which suprised me. The railing is a bit flimsy which is the only negative I have. They look amazing installed. They are EXACTLY what I was looking for and I am so happy with my purchase.

The stair kit was well packed and protected during its shipment with no damage to the various parts. All elements of the stairs were easily assembled and look great after installation. The only difficulty was in tightening the bolts that hold the individual metal step assemblies together. They require a significant amount of torque to insure they are rigidly connected together without chance of them slipping at some point in the future.

Great stairs, perfect for the space I had to work with. Fairly easy to assemble. Just be careful not to scratch the railing when you put the connectors on them. I ended up with 4 extra railings rods so I had some to replace the ones I scratched.Nice and sturdy stairs. I love them.

Badly needs better instructions. You will need heavy duty tools for large bolts and nuts on the risers. And pay close attention To the rail hardware holes template location. Also no DVD sent to me.

This is a well made, very handsome stair system. Be mindful of the fact that it will take some considerable time, manipulation and assembly skills to put together, especially if you do a curved stair system like I did. Video is very helpful to watch, written directions leave a little to be desired. Definitely not a 1 person project, Be careful with railing template for drilling alignment along outside stair edge (hole placement needs to be straight and equidistant to edge at exact depth to fit snug), and if you are curving your stairs, be prepared to improvise a bit and recalculate your rail heights along curve. Take time to get organized and mass assembly minded, there are many nuts, bolts, washers and set screws to deal with and between 5 to 9 holes to drill per stair. Connecting the "steel spine" of the stair and establishing your riser heights is not difficult but that portion of assembly is somewhat awkward and unwieldy ... but very possible with 2 strong folks. Patience + diligence = great results!

Thank you for your comments. The installation video will answer many initial questions regarding the assembly. We are working to develop a more "Americanized" set of written installation instructions to better provide support to our customers in the US market with their final installation.
We want to thank you for your purchase decision to use a Fontanot/ARKE staircase system in your home.
Best regards,

The stairs are attractive and sturdy. They take up min. amount of space and are quite functional. My wife and I did a lot of research to find something that would satisfy the need to access our loft while maintaining a small foot print in our living room. The Karina stair kit fills this need. Only bad commit is the instructions are terrible. U Tube video of other customers installations helped greatly.
