The shape on a tread : A study on alternative shapes on a tread (English)
Abstract [no]

Mitt eksamensarbeid på Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies tar for seg en problemstilling om hvorvidt dagens profil på trappetrinnet er optimal, ut fra krav om at trappen skal være sikker, komfortabel og lite anstrengende å gå i. Det omhandler kun trapper i tre for innendørs bruk, og faktorer som produksjonsvennlighet og økonomiske aspekter er ikke tatt hensyn til.

Interessen for temaet ble skapt under min praksisperiode hos snekkerverkstedet ”Studio Furniture Maui”, hvor man hadde spesialisert seg på å bygge trapper.

Etter å ha søkt etter erfaringer om emnet hos bransjen og på internett, gikk det klart frem at dette var et lite utforsket tema. Jeg definerte tre punkter som jeg mente var viktige for et bedre trinn. Det skulle være sikkert, komfortabelt og lite anstrengende å gå på.

I samarbeid med Kjell Ohlsson, professor i ergonometri på Linköpings universitet, arbeidet jeg frem fire alternativer som jeg ville teste i tillegg til det vanlige trappetrinnet. Disse profilene ble så testet av en testgruppe på 40 personer. Utfallet av denne testen viste at majoriteten av testpersonene foretrakk en av de alternative profilene fremfor det vanlige trappetrinnet.

Basert på resultatet av testen har jeg i denne rapporten konkludert med at dagens profil på trappetrinnet ikke er optimal, og at temaet burde studeres nærmere.

Abstract [en]

´My final work for the Bachelor Degree at Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies discusses whether today’s shape of the tread in a staircase is optimal. There are some limitations to this project. Only indoor stairs made from wood will be discussed. Production and financial aspects will not be part of this study.

My interest for this subject was created during my internship at the workshop “Studio Furniture Maui”. They had specialised in building staircases.

After searching for information from the industry and online, it became clear to me that this was an unexplored subject. I defined three qualities that I meant was important for a better tread. It needed to be safe, comfortable, and less exhausting to walk on.

Working together with Kjell Ohlsson, a professor in ergonomics on Linköpings University, I made four alternative treads in addition to a normal one. 40 people tested these treads. The result from the test showed that the majority of the people preferred one of the alternative profiles to the normal one.

Based on the result from the test, this report concludes that the tread we are used to is not optimal, and that more research should be done on the subject.
