Baluster: – is a barrier or barrier is installed at the headers step ladders to protect the ascending or descending from the falls. Or is part of a ramp is placed at a convenient height on the stairs to give aid and security for users.

(Newel or Box Newel) column is based at the bottom of the stairs and up the stairs and at the turning point in peace in order to prove its handrail.

Step ladders: (step) is one of the pieces consisting of a set of peace, and for every degree two surfaces are visible, one horizontal and the upper surface prepared for intercourse with the foot, and the second my head is perpendicular to the horizontal. Or is a contact surface of the class (Tread) with the menu . Prove the stairs between the thighs, or on the thighs and include so-called near the edge of the wall as the “tail” and called the other party when the handrail as the “head”.

(Tread) is the horizontal surface of the class that is placed upon the foot. And presented a display stairs

(Riser) front vertical degrees. And the surface is perpendicular to the vertical height and Tread is a high degree.

(Going or run) the horizontal distance between any two lists in a row.

Mat: oblique pillar and prove the Tread list.

(Bull-nose step) is a first degree in peace and take different forms in terms of design and depending on the purpose for which prepared for the stairs and the staircase with the end of the ball or both start and end of the ball or part of a plus.

Steps for installing stear treads

Step 1  Clean the Stairs

To properly apply the contact cement you will need the stairs to be clean and free from dust and debris. Use a vacuum to clean each one of the stairs. Use a damp mop to fully remove any remaining dust or debris. Allow the stairs to dry for 3 to 4 hours before proceeding.

Step 2 – Cutting the Stair Treads

Since all stairs are different in size the treads are large. Measure the size of the stair and use a carpenters pencil to mark the width and length on the stair treads. When getting the length of the stairs you must also include the 2 to 3 additional inches to fold the stair tread over the lip of the stair.

When drawing the line use the straight edge to ensure you have a perfectly straight cut line. Use the linoleum knife to cut along the line. Remove the excess rubber or vinyl and test the stair treads on the stair. Cut each stair tread before moving on. Remember to measure each stair individually incase the stairs are not all the exact same size.

Step 3 Add the Adhesive

Place the adhesive you are using on the bottom part of the tread. If you are using rubber treads then use simple contact cement. If the stair treads are made out of vinyl then you will want to use neoprene contact cement.

Place a small amount of epoxy nose caulk on the inside nose portion of the stair tread. The nose portion is the part which will fold over the lip of the stair. This is important to make sure that any air gaps which form over time fill in. This helps to prevent cracking.

Step 4  Installing the Stair Tread

Hold the stair tread up with the back surface a few inches away from the stair. Put the nosing down to the stair first and push firmly. Work your way towards the back of the stair tread and the rise pressing firmly. When you have completely pushed the stair tread down it should be laying flatly on the stair. Look for any obvious air bubbles below the stair tread and work them out using your hands.

Step 5  Finishing Up

Using your hand roller, work from one side of the stair tread to the other and then up and down. Finally roll over the nose of the stair tread. Continue this action until the stair tread is completely free of any air bubbles.
