Your Stairs may be up a long hill from your waterfront or over a steep banking leading through the woods. Some accessories available with our stairs are hand rails, non-skid tape and landing areas with railings and benches for resting. Landing areas are also used where the shape of the land changes. If you plan to use your stairs to bring kayaks or canoes to the water, you may prefer railings on one side only, allowing more clearance. Small gang planks from land to the top step is often the best way to avoid large gaps between the stairs and the ground.
