## How do you calculate curved stairs?

As with any stair, building curved stairs involves calculating the unit rise and run (height and length) of the treads and risers. Similar to straight flights, unit rise is calculated by dividing the total rise of the stair by the number or risers.

## How do you calculate spiral staircase railing?

How to Calculate a Spiral Stair Handrail

- Measure the radius of the spiral staircase using your tape measure.
- Measure the height of the staircase using the same units as you used for the radius.
- Use the formula:
- Handrail Length = square root[(Height^2 + (2 * pi * Radius)^2)]

**Is there an app for building stairs?**

If you are going through a hole in the floor your finished floor opening should be two inches greater than your stair’s diameter. For example, if you are using a 3’6” spiral stair to get you access to an attic through a hole in the floor then you would need a finished floor opening of 44 inches x 44 inches.

### What is the Blondel formula?

BLONDEL’S FORMULA Following this criterion, Blondel stipulated that the sum of the height of two steps (risers) plus one tread is equal to the variation of one step, where the ideal dimension is from 16 cm to 18 cm for the height of the riser and a minimum of 25 cm to the tread.

**Does a curved staircase save space?**

The main reason spiral stairs were invented was to save floor space. Spiral Staircases do take up less space than conventional staircases. This is because the steps are all located within the diameter of the spiral, regardless of the height.
