Height of the steps in houses and apartments maisonettes should not be greater than 19 cm, and the width of not less than 80 cm, after installing railings. Secure staircase steps should be the same height. Are most comfortable with a two-speed landing, with degrees of height of about 17 cm and the angle of not more than 30 °. An important element of the stairs is a balustrade, which, though not everywhere required regulations, giving their users a sense of security. Railing is also an important decorative element.

Their operation is based on the fact that in the semiconductor, which is part of the diode due to the movement of electrons produced photons, and thus the particles of the electromagnetic field, which is light. When placed in the housing from several to tens of LEDs, LED lamp is formed. LEDs consume far less energy than incandescent bulbs and fluorescent lamps.
