The combination of the well-designed aluminum framework and utility of the Titan Classic decking; creates a rugged, durable, and adjustable dock stair that will provide you with years of trouble-free use. In comparison to dock steps that use an aluminum step surface, the Titan Classic steps provide superior 360-degree anti-slip step surface that is more resistant to algae growth and is very comfortable on the feet.
All 6 step models include a single handrail. You do have the option to add a handrail so there is one on both sides. Every stair also comes standard with the necessary support hardware to attach the stair to a dock, seawall, pier, or other stable and sturdy mounting location. It is recommended for those that do not have a solid mounting surface for the top of the stair to connect to, that they consider adding the optional Back Leg Kit. The optional Back Leg Kit transfers less force to the top mounting surface and allows for a more self-supported configuration for the steps. The kit comes standard with 2 legs with base pads and an X-brace.
DETERMINING STEP HEIGHT
The 6 Step would work well with a vertical distance of 47" to 54". This would keep the steps level and the step height for the first and last step similar. We do get a lot of contacts inquiring how to determine the number of steps in a given location. We have provided steps below you can follow to help determine the correct number of steps for your installation.
Measure from the ground to top of the dock, seawall or walking surface. You will need to account for the depth where the bottom of the step will sit. You will need a straight vertical measurement, do not measure at an angle.
Divide the number you get in inches by 7 (the rise of each step).
Now subtract 1 for the step up onto your dock, seawall or walking surface.
This gives you the number of steps needed for your installation. If the number ends up being right in the middle like 4.5, then you will need to decide if going with a 4 or a 5 step would be best for your installation. Remember the stairs have 18" adjustable legs on the bottom.
We hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
