How to calculate the angle of staircase?/ Calculating slope of staircase.

 Let us now find out the angle or slope of the staircase as shown below.


If riser & tread are known.

Given data:

Riser = 160mm.

Tread = 250mm.


     = [riser ÷ tread]

     = [ 160mm.÷ 250mm.]

     = 0.64

Here, slope = tanθ


tanθ = 0.64

θ = tan-1 0.64

  = 32.62°

2. Type-2

If the height & horizontal distance of the staircase are known.

Given data:

Height of landing = 1300mm.

Horizontal distance = 2000mm.

tanθ = [opposite ÷ adjacent]

        = [height ÷ horizontal distance]

         = [ 1300mm.÷ 2000mm.]

     = 0.65

θ = tan-1 0.65

  = 33.02°

Thank you for going through these calculation steps. Have a good day 😄.

  1. EPS bricks are placed between two layers of plastic webbing in an insulated concrete form to produce a rigid framework (ICF). An integrated super form is used to pour a concrete wall instead of a typical wood plank or plywood form, saving time and money. As a result of ICF blocks interlocking design, a wall built using these blocks is stable and secure. Finishing touches, like drywall or siding, are fastened to fastener strips that have been inserted into the insulation to keep all of the materials together.
