Arke Karina

Space Saving

The Arke-Fontanot Karina modular space saver stair kit is a unique and stylish solution for narrow access areas, such as lofts or attics. The Karina’s ingenious supporting structure allows complete flexibility in the application, and the Beachwood alternating style treads are appropriately shaped and staggered to guarantee maximum utilization of space, without compromising functionality. Complete with one side handrail, a second side rail is available for those installations not going against a wall. In place of a knee or half wall along your top floor or opening, balcony rail kits of similar materials and finish are available to complete the contemporary appearance of your staircase.

The Karina comes in one box with railings, balusters, and treads. Written instructions and a demonstration video or DVD are included. Basic household tools are all that are needed for assembly.
