SEA STAIR 2-SECTION TAKE-APART OPTION
A two-section take-apart stair uses mortise-tennon connections secured by locking pins to allow the stair to be be easily split into two seperate sections. Applications inclue: Use of the shorter length for boarding from higher fixed docks to keep the stair from extending too far across the dock surface and use of the longer lenght to reach lower floating docks Stowage of a stair within a space shorter than the full length of a fixed-length stair Easier handling of larger stairs in sections rather than as a single unit Acommodating two different boarding locations where one is higher above the waterline than the other and requires a longer stair
Provides the functionality of two different stair lengths in a single stair
Stows in a shorter length than a full-length stair
Handles as two separate smaller sections
Location of the section-split along the length of the stair.
For use at different dock heights, the most common location of the split is just above the second step from the bottom. This provides a two-step extention capabilty to reach lower docks. For acommodating compact stowage areas, the split is typically made in the center of the stair, providing two near-half length sections. For use of a single stair at two different boarding locations which are significantly different heights above the water, the split can be placed wherever is most appropriate.
We can provide separate handrails for both stair lengths. With two-step extensions the shorter length handrail may be used when the stair is configured for the longer length, either alone or in combination with the longer handrail on the other side of the staircase
