Open Plan Staircases

Oak Openplan with the European Style handrail

What is and Openplan Staircase ?

A Open plan is a staircase with openings where there are normaly risers, regulations state you must not be able to pass a 100mm sphere through the opening, this is why we have either a Riser downstand or a Bar on the drawings below. Open Plan Staircases are more expensive than closed staircases as they take longer to manufacture than closed.
