Does the Fontanot Wooden Spiral Stair comply with Building Regs if it is leading to a single study/lounge which is not a bedroom and leads nowhere else, but has an emergency escape window ?
The height of the stair would need to be about 8'.
if you choose the 1500mm diameter the staircase will be complaint.

Does the 110 cm Diameter staircase comply with Building Regs for access to 2 bedrooms?
Someone asked question about this item for access to 1 bedroom, but response is for another product with 150 cm diameter.
We are interested in 110 cm diameter for access to 2 bedrooms.
All Spiral staircases below 180cm diameter are not complaint to Building Regs for 2 bedrooms. anything below 180cm is suitable only for one bedroom. However, if space is limited each Local Authority react differently. we always advise you check with Building Control Officer.

Hi does this product come with the spindles? What is the extra steel riser bars?
Thank you for your question.
Yes, the staircase comes with spindles. You will receive the railing as shown on the images. With regards to riser bars,these are a safety feature. It is a bar that sits in the middle of the gap in between each tread. It divides the gap into two so that a child can not fall through the gap. These are a requirement for compliance to building regulations. For full compliance the 150cm diameter staircase with the riser bars would be required and this would comply for suitability for a secondary staircase leading up to one habitable room.

Does this staircase comply with Building Regs? It would be used to access 1 x bedroom
Hi Thank you for the question. If you purchase the 150cm diameter spiral staircase (Product Code: 82492) and used this in conjunction with the riser bars (Product Code: 13957) the staircase fulfills required criteria to meet the building regulations for access to one bedroom (BS:5395), based on tread width and spindle distance. You would also need to check whether your rise (the gap in between the treads) meets building regulations. To establish this we would need to know your floor to floor height to calculate it. Please feel free to call Screwfix for further support
