Half-Turn | Switchback | U-Shaped Stairs

Dimensioned set of plan and elevation drawings of a Half-Turn | Switchback | U-Shaped Stair

Half-Turn Stairs have two straight flights with two 90° turns. These types of stairs are advantageous for saving space at the base where the angle is incorporated. The center of the staircase can be left open to allow for several different configurations that depend on the space, and the turns can also be curved. This can allow for a more comfortable and safer staircase, as it reduces the tapering of the angled treads. There are three types of Half-Turn Stairs- Dog-legged Stairs, Open Newel Half-Turn Stars, and Geometrical Half-Turn Stairs.
