Where To Use BASICS Stair Cladding
MID LANDING SITUATIONS
If you have a small mid landing area then you will need to use extension boards to cover your existing floor. The treads are supplied with a groove on the back edge to allow the tongue and groove extension boards to slot into them. Extension Boards are 1000mm Wide x 235mm Deep.
To calculate the Number of Extension Boards Required measure the depth of your landing area and deduct the tread 250mm, this will leave the area to be covered by Extension Boards.
For Example 1000mm deep landing less the tread @ 250mm = 750mm. Then divide the remaining area by 235mm (Extension board) 750mm / 235mm = 3.19 We would recommend rounding up to ensure full coverage, therefore in this instance you will need to buy 4 Basics Stair Cladding Extension Boards.
If you have a Winder Staircase then you can usually use Basics 1000mm Treads and Risers with an extension board at the back of the tread, however if you have a Kite Winder (Diamond Shape) Step then you may Have to buy the BASICS Kite Winder Stair Cladding Kit which is supplied with 1500mm Treads & Risers with an Extension Board
For the very top landing we recommend finishing with a riser to the top and if carpet is being laid, wrap the carpet over the existing top nosing and finish against the riser. If you are laying a floor then we can supply a small Top Landing Tread machined to the thickness of your chosen flooring.

BASICS Stair Cladding Coverage
To calculate the coverage of the treads you need to measure the distance of your existing tread nosing back to the riser underneath the tread. This measurement needs to be added to the Basics Riser thickness (10mm) and the Basics Tread to the riser groove (230mm). This will give you the maximum size that the BASICS Range will cover .... See instruction images
Existing nosing protrusion = 15mm
Basics Riser Thickness = 10mm
Basics Tread to riser groove 230mm
Maximum Coverage of the system = 15 + 10 + 230 = 255mm
If your existing tread measured from the front of the riser to the front of the rounded nosing is 255mm or less then this system will clad your existing stair case
Once you have calculated that the Basics Range is suitable for your stairs you simply cut the treads & risers to size and stick them in place the polymer adhesive
