    Default Re: Door (?) opening over stair

    Looks like a hazard to foot traffic to me. If you're coming up the stair you would have to back-down a step or 2 to open the gate and if you have small kids you don't want the gate opening over a stair.
    I don't care if it's a door or a gate, a safety hazard is a safety hazard.and you should call your client's attention to it and recommend correction.

    I fully agree with West Coast Jerry, plus, what is the spacing of those verticals in the gate?
