Stairs are the main passage between different floors of the house, and the loft also need stairs. For safety reasons, stair handrails are particularly important because they need to ensure the safety of the use of stairs. Do you know what is the appropriate height of the stair railing? 

① The height of the stair handrail (measured from the front edge of the step) should not be less than 0.90m.

② When the width of the stairwell is greater than 0.20m, the clearance of the vertical members of the handrail should not be greater than 0.11m to prevent children from falling.   

③The net width of the stair platform shall not be less than the width of the stairs, and shall not be less than 1.10m at the same time. 

④The width of the stairs is clearly stipulated in the residential design codes and must meet the requirements of fire evacuation. The width of expressive stairs in public buildings is usually too large, but attention should be paid to the relationship between the setting of handrails and the width of the stairs. That is: handrails should be provided on at least one side of the stairs. When the net width of the stairs reaches three flows, handrails should be provided on both sides. When there are four flows, a middle handrail should be added.
