Stair Angle Calculation

 

Our Stair PanelSets accommodate stair angles of 35.5º to 38.5º and 39.5º to 42.5º. The table below will allow you to determine whether your stair angle is within that range.  Stairways outside this range can also be accommodated!

Measure the rise and run (tread less nosing) dimensions of your stairs. Then use the table to find the angle.
