### What is the typical stair riser height?

For each rise: minimum 130mm, maximum 225mm. For each going: minimum 215mm, maximum 355mm. The going shall be not greater than the tread depth (TD) plus a maximum gap of 30 mm between the rear edge of one tread and the nosing of the tread above.

#### What is the minimum stair riser height?

4 inches
Stair riser heights shall be 7 inches (178 mm) maximum and 4 inches (102 mm) minimum. The riser height shall be measured vertically between the leading edges of adjacent treads.

What is the most comfortable stair height?

Rule one says that rise plus run (r+R) should equal 18 inches. Why? That’s what most people find to be a comfortable stride on most stairs. You can cheat a bit up or down, but below 17” and more than 19” will result in steps that require strides either too big or too small for most people.

What is the minimum height for stair riser?

## What is the maximum depth of a step?

The 2018 IBC building code for rise and run of stairs is a maximum 7″ rise and minimum 11″ run (tread depth). The OSHA standard for rise and run of stairs is maximum 9.5″ rise and minimum 9.5″ run (tread depth). The IBC maximum rise of a single stair flight is 12.

The OSHA standard for rise and run of stairs is maximum 9.5″ rise and minimum 9.5″ run (tread depth). The IBC maximum rise of a single stair flight is 12.

#### Are stairs at 45 degrees?

For example, if you were crazy and built a staircase with a 12 inch tread and riser, then the angle of the stringer to the floor would be 45 degrees. A more common angle is about 37 degrees.

What is a comfortable stair pitch?

Rise (r) : must be between 150 and 220mm. Going (g): must be between 220 and 300mm. Pitch angle : anything up to a maximum of 42 degrees.

What is the minimum height of a stair riser?

• Ceiling Height. The diagram below indicates the minimum ceiling heights required.
• #### How to calculate stair treads and risers?

Riser and Tread Dimensions. The dimensions of the tread and riser determine the angle of a staircase.

• Interior Stairs Tread and Riser Ratio.
• Exterior Stairs Tread and Riser Ratio.
