What to Consider when Buying a Spa Step?

One of the most important things that you need when you buy a spa is the steps. The steps are how you are going to get in and out of the spa safely and without a lot of hassle and worry. They can also play a major role in the safety aspect of your spa. Let’s take a look at specific types of spa steps and what you should consider before making this important purchase.

Spa stairs could be manufactured to particular setups that are custom made for a certain spa, or a spa owner can just purchase a pre-assembled set of spa stairs for their layout. Most spa stairs are made of wood, metal, or plastic, and many of them will utilize non-slip materials to permit bathers to get in and out of the spa securely, even when the stairs are wet. A few stairs will also have hand rails, however this is redundant, as most spas are not tall enough to require more than a few stairs. In-ground spas will usually stairs that are submerged in the water; these are normally an inherent trait of the spa.

Normal spa stairs are usually produced using cedar. Cedar is known for being resistant to water damage and mold, and it is an attractive looking wood that will supplement the look of the spa. Most cedar spa stairs are a few steps high, since this is frequently all that is needed to permit individuals into the spa. The steps could be treated with slip safe materials to improve footing, especially when the steps are wet. Regularly the steps are straight; however different designs are bended to wrap around a round spa.

One of the inconveniences of cedar spa stairs is the cost. Cedar is a reasonably lavish wood on account of its imperviousness to water harm and its visual appeal, so different alternatives are accessible. Plastic or PVC steps are significantly less costly, and they can impersonate the look of cedar steps sometimes. These steps are exceptionally lightweight, making them simple to move around the spa if you have to for some reason. PVC does have a tendency to get very tricky when wet, then again, so a spa holder ought to consider acquiring PVC steps that are treated with an anti slip surfacing.

Bigger spa steps may permit a bather to get up to the top of the spa divider. These are typically four step stairs and they regularly have hand rails to prevent falling or slipping while ea person is going to enter or leave the pool. Such stairs are typically produced using more solid materials, for example, cedar, and they could be to a degree hard to move.

A more unique sort of spa stairs might be produced using stone pavers or block. These sorts of stairs oblige significantly more exertion in order to install them, and you usually have to understand how to lay bricks and such. Many people are interested in these sorts of steps because they are a lot sturdier and they prevent slipping all together, but the cost of these steps is much higher than their counterparts.

In general, if you are looking for stairs, you will want to look at the type of material that you want first, you will want to ensure that you have anti slip material (or that you have it installed on the stairs) and you will want stairs that fit your spa.
