Transcript of RCC FOLDED TYPE STAIRS
There are different types of stairs and following are a few materials which are commonly used in their construction:
3.Wooden or timber stairs
The choice of the type of material to be adopted for the construction of stairs will depend on the availability of funds, qualities desired, use of the stair, durability expected, architectural effect required, etc.
RCC FOLDED TYPE STAIRS
A stair is defined as a sequence of steps and it is provided to afford the means of ascent and decent between the floors or landings. The apartment or room of a building, in which the stair is located, is known as a 'staircase' and the opening or space occupied by the stair is known as 'stairway'.
These stairs are now commonly used in all types of construction and in case of a framed structure of reinforced concrete, the R.C.C. stair is perhaps the only choice. They are found to resist fire better than any other material and can be molded to the desired shape. The steps can be provided with suitable finishing material such as marble, terrazzo, tile etc.
4.Pleasing in appearance
5.Easily rendered non-slippery.
6.Can be designed for greater widths and longer spans.
The details and placing of reinforcement will naturally depend on the design of R.C.C. stair. The steps may be cast-in-situ or pre-cast. In the latter case, it is also possible to pre-cast a flight and then place it in position with help of suitable equipment.
The folded type R.C.C. stairs are used mostly in bus stops, railway stations and airports etc. Stairs of public entertainment places such as theaters require special treatment for finish. Usually the decorative carpets are spread over the steps to create the desired effects and the artistic balustrade is provided to give comfort to the users of the stairs.
