The following will help you determine if you need a REGULAR or WIDE Stair Barrier.
Glossary of Terms
Measuring for Banister to Banister:
Measure from the innermost edge of the 1st banister (see arrow marked in Fig. 1) to the innermost edge of the 2nd banister. For staircases measuring 36-42 inches between the banisters, you need a Regular Stair Barrier. For stairs measuring greater than 42 inches, but no wider than 52 inches between the banisters, order a Wide Stair Barrier. If you have volute (curved) banisters where the spindles wrap around the banister, measure from spindle to spindle, as seen in Fig. 2.
Measuring for Wall to Banister:
Measure from the wall to the innermost edge of the banister (see arrow marked in Fig. 1). For staircases measuring 36-43 inches between the wall and banister, you need a Regular Stair Barrier. For stairs measuring greater than 43 inches, but no wider than 52 inches between the wall and banister, order a Wide Stair Barrier. If you have volute (curved) banisters where the spindles wrap around the banister, measure from spindle to wall, as seen in Fig. 2.
What if the width of your stairs are not exactly 42 inches or 52 inches?
The key is to be able to pull the Stair Barrier as tightly across the opening of your staircase as possible. If you have extra fabric, you can always wrap around banisters and/or spindles.
With the many variations in stairs, there is not one process for installation that applies to all homes. With the Stair Barrier you can use the banisters, spindles, multiple spindles and combination of both to install the product. The key is to try multiple options and find the tightest fit that works for your stairs.
