Requires two people to assemble the kit.

Step 1 (positioning)
Position the landing with the steel column in the correct position. Level the column on two sides with your spirit level. The base plate contains three holes of 10mm in diameter. Place the drill through the holes to drill into the floor. Remove the column and drill in those previously marked three holes at a depth of 100mm. Attach the base plate to the floor with three Upat frame anchors. (see pamphlet)

Step 2 (treads)
The treads no.1 and 2 ( 1 has got the rossette on it and 2 the bracket) are numbered. Slide the rosette over the pole followed by the treads in number sequence. Attach the landing to the stairwell with a 8mm nailplug for a concrete floor or screws (10x75mm) for a wooden floor. Tighten the only bolt on the steel column. Not too tight for the treads must be able to shift later to the correct position.

Step 3 (balustrading)
Place the newel (65x65x1050mm) in the already notched-out space in the landing and secure it with screws (10x75mm) Level the newel in two directions. Start fixing the balusters from the top. The balusters (44x44mm) must be placed 10mm from the edge of the treads. Turn the top screw in first (10x75mm). Place the baluster vertical in the direction of the centre of the staircase. Fix the bottom tread to the baluster. The treads are now connected through the balusters. At tread number two place the starting newel in the same manner, but do not fix the base plate to the floor. Tread no. one only has the support which needs to be cut to size. Do not fix the base plate to the floor.

Step 4 (placing the railing)
Before starting tighten the centre pole nut. Commence from the top. Fix the rail temporarily to the newel screws (10x75mm) and work down by connecting the rail segments in reversed order (4, 3, 2, 1). Clamp the rail connection with a 'G' clamp to ensure that the rail will not brake in case it slips from the hands. The handrail needs to be divided properly between the newels, therefore the temporary fixing is necessary. While one person holds the handrail at the bottom, the other person fixes the balusters to the handrail (screws 50mm). Again check the levels of the balusters whereby the treads sometimes, slightly, needs to be moved. Do not tighten the nut too tight. After attaching the handrail, attach the starting newel and the tread support with nailplugs 6mm. Next, tighten the bolt on the landing firmly.

Step 5 (finishing)
The countersunk holes have to be filled by gluing pallets in the holes and chiselling them off smoothly. Place the centre newel (85x85mm) with the hollow baseplate on top of the landing to cover the bolt by using two screws (10x75mm).

After connecting the rail the bolt needs to be tightened everytime due to the fact that the treads are settling which is caused by the running up and down on the staircase. The newel post on the landing is included if you wish to attach your own balustrading, which is not included in the kit.
