Starting steps are the bottom step of the staircase that is made slightly wider than the others to give a more inviting feeling. You can get starting steps in both closed and open design. These are our two most common forms.

Mats and anti-slip protection
Mats are recommended for stairs where you know that the wear is high, public spaces, stairwells between apartments or if you are worried that the dog will leave marks on the stairs. Contact us for information about standard mats.
We supply stairs with mats mounted on the step of Linoleum, PVC or Needlefelt, please note that the mat must be marked as a compatible with the staircase. If you want to add another type of mat, we can prepare the step for mounting. Steps with carpet have a nose in hardwood or steel.
Anti-slip protection on the step in the form of milled metal rails. Best suited for public environments where you usually go on the stairs with shoes.
Closed or open staircase
There are a few different choices to make depending on whether you want a closed or open staircase. Noses on the step, risers or child safety list are some of them.
Nose profiles (from left) FK1, Fk2 and Fk3. The step is always slightly rounded on the top to create a more comfortable and safer staircase. Choose between these three profiles when you order your staircase.
Child safety list below the step is a requirement to meet the building rules. From left, standard rounded corners, straight b-list, b-list in stainless steel. The standard version fits all stairs, stainless steel b-strips are best suited to closed stringer stairs and Treppenmeister, the straight cut strips are the best match for stairs with open stringers.
Standard risers The riser is the vertical sheet between the steps that form a closed staircase. The standard is 14 mm of the same wood as the step or coated MDF in the same color as the stringer. In this version, the step overlap is 28 mm for easier walking.
Risers in the style with the nose gives the staircase a modern look and fits stairs open stringers. Standard on visible edges are 19 mm but is also available in the same dimension as the step, ie 40 mm. Always with the same wood and surface treatment as the step. Keep in mind that a staircase like this requires a bit bigger steps (depth-wise) to feel comfortable to walk in.
Folded nose replaces the b-list. Recommended only for stairs with open stringers.
