Quarter Landing | U-Shaped Stairs

Set of plan and elevation drawings of Quarter Landing | U-Shaped Stairs with dimensions

Quarter Landing Stairs, also called U-Shaped Stairs, are two parallel flights of straight stairs that are joined by a landing that creates a 180° turn in the middle of the walk line. They are similar to L-shape stairs, as both can be located in a corner. Some advantages include their ease to fit into an architectural plan, and the landing can offer a resting point partway up the stairs. They are visually more appealing than straight staircases, and they take up less linear floor space. However, Quarter Landing Stairs can be more difficult to build than simpler stair types.

Stairs, stairways, staircases, or stairwells, are building components that provide users with a means of vertical movement with the distribution of separate and individual vertical steps.
