The materials: tread Wall is made of Solid Beech 100%.
Installation: The sequence of steps cantilevered Wall allows the realization of rectilinear configurations with or without hole in ceiling and in the presence of loft with variable heights according to needs.
Seals (indicated in blue) are provided in the kit to be inserted between the treads and the steel structure in order to prevent vibration and noise from being transmitted from the tread to the wall when going up and down the stairs.
