Fitting Stair Carpet Into a Half Landings
Stair carpet is easy to fit to a straight staircase.
Sometimes there is also a landing half way up the stair carpet called a quarter landing . It turns 9o degrees .
The pic shows a strong and elegant way to make the turn in your stair carpet .
The first step is to fit the stair carpet to the straight stairs above and below the quarter landing .
To fit these stairs you should follow the steps at our post on how to fit a stair runner with stair rods or how to fit a stair runner with gripper rods
We will send you a piece specially made for your half landing so it will arrive ready to fit with nothing for you to do. It will be shaped like an ‘L’.
The next step is simply to join the stair carpet to the half landing section provided .
The join can be made by overlapping one end over the other , stapling together and then cutting off the excess .
To make a strong join and hide it there are two methods. In this case we used stair rods . The join will be hidden by the stair rod above and below the half landing section provided . Joining under the stair rod has two advantages .
1. The join is hidden from sight .
2. The join can not be damaged by wear .
Once the quarter landing is fixed to both ends of the stair runner you may like to fix on the back with a small amount of spray glue and or staples for additional strength .
Screwing the stair rod in over the join is simply a matter of screwing four screws provided into the holes pre-made in your stair rod clips .
Takes 30 minutes to fit the runner and twenty extra minutes may take for half landing .
Please remember that we are always here to give free help and advice on how to fit your half landing .
When using gripper rods
If you are using gripper rods to make the join the process is equally easy and cut the two joining lengths around 5 mm long then force in to the gripper rod together to hide the join .
