All of our stair runners are available in any length and several widths.
To determine the length you need for your staircase, you should measure the riser and tread of your first step and then multiply this by the amount of steps you have. We recommend adding 10% on to this amount to give you your final figure. This ensures enough product when fitting as each step can very slightly and also, shaping the runner over each 'bull nose' may use slightly more product.
To determine the width, this mainly comes down to personal preference depending on how much of the staircase you would like to be visible either side of the runner. We recommend leaving 10cm (~4 inches) either side of your runner. For example, if your staircase is 80cm (~2ft 8in) wide, we would recommend a 60cm (~2ft) runner.

This stair runner has a latex, gel backing. The means that the runner is non slip and grips to pretty much any surface. Also it means that it can be fitted on the stairs without gripper and underlay and simply fixed to the stairs using adhesive, staples or stair rods. Underlay and gripper can still be used but it is not a necessity. The gel backing makes the stair carpet 100% waterproof and rot proof, meaning that spillages will never cause the product to shrink.
