To which side can you orientate the staircase?
The clockwise or anticlockwise winding direction may be decided during the assembly. Covered by a worldwide patent, it is the only staircase with adjustable rise, going, and rotation during the assembly.
Which must the dimensions of the ceiling opening be?
Choosing your configuration, you will have to bear in mind the floor space available and the required headroom (ceiling opening). The advised ceiling opening must have at least the dimensions of the staircase less two treads.
Through the different disposition of the 12 treads and the choice of going, KOMPACT 74 from 18 to 22 cm, KOMPACT 89 from 22 to 26 cm, you can achieve 152 different configurations.
The total flexibility of Kompact allows endless configurations, with ¼ turn or 2/4 turn (KOMPACT L or KOMPACT U).
If a ceiling opening exists, from the 152 diagrams, select one with equal or smaller dimension than the opening itself.
The ceiling opening must have at least the dimensions of the staircase less two treads. Before choosing any additional kit, be sure if you are dealing with KOMPACT 74 or KOMPACT 89.
If the ceiling opening is to be realised, identify which of the 152 diagrams is the most suitable for you, according to floor space, direction, etc.
The ceiling opening must have at least the dimensions given in the selected diagram less two treads.
Before choosing any additional kit, be sure if you are dealing with KOMPACT 74 or KOMPACT 89.
Which are the available colours?
Kompact combines the colours of steel, black (RAL 9017), white (RAL 9010) or grey (RAL 9006) with the polished solid beech treads with a light (natural) or dark dye. The handrail is in solid beech. The accessories are black for the staircase in black and grey for the staircases in grey and white.
1. What are the necessary dimensions for the opening of the hole for the staircase?
The ceiling opening should have at least the dimensions of the staircase less two treads.
2. Can one assemble 2 KITS one on the top of each other?
Yes. The first staircase is to be fitted on the first floor not ground floor. Therefore the first tread must necessarily have a support on the floor. The assembly of this staircase will be possible only after having created a temporary floor in order to close the intermediate ceiling hole. The G08 pole must be attached to the wall. After having assemblied this first staircase, you can carry on with the fitting of the inferior floor.
3. What do you use the G08 pole for?
This supporting pole gives stability to the staircase.
4. Do you always have to use the G08 pole of the Kompact?
Yes, in order to achieve the necessary stability.
5. How do you fix the G08 pole to the floor?
Once you have assembled the staircase, read the shedules 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the assembly instructions in order to point out where the little black spot is located (generally under the treads 5 or 6 or 7). Insert the cap D31 in one of the two pole ends and insert the element C35. At this point insert everything in the support N21. The end with the cap will land on the floor. Before finishing using the elements B20, put C35 under the support, lift the staircase slightly in order to pre-load the pole (assembly instructions ).
6. How do you fix the G08 pole?
Having a solid wall is very important in order to fix the floor pole to the wall. The G08 must be fixed to the wall at a distance of at least 15 cm. Once you have finished assembling the staircase, before you take the supports away, you must cut the pole to the desired length (see the figure 11 in the assembly instructions). Consult the schedules 2, 3, 4 and 5, in the assembly instructions, in order to check where the little black spot is located (generally under treads 5 or 6 or 7), and drill the wall. Before drilling the wall it is advisable to lift the staircase a little more in order to allow the pre-loading of the walled pole. We advise you not to take the support away before the clamp is fixed (assembly instructions ).
7. During the assembly of the staircase, is it necessary to fix it somehow?
After you have fixed the first 3 or 4 supports (and every 3 or 4 supports), it is necessary to discharge their load using some supports (a wooden board or similar) in order to avoid overloading the ceiling.
8. How does one fix the stair to the floor?
The staircase must be fixed in concrete. Otherwise our parts B38 will be too short, you will need to buy some longer ones.
9. What are the dimensions of the Kompact landing plate?
25 x 34 cm.
10. What is the Kompact landing plate diameter?
