Ok, I've been working on riser design this morning and found a problem. My first major "thank goodness for design" moment. The rack that I am using is a Middle Atlantic AXS-40-GG
. This system allows the rack to be pulled out of the wall for maintenance, but requires a 50" clearance. There was not enough room for this. My initial cut at a solution is to have a removable section of the riser (the stair and a small part of the deck) be removable. My prime concern with this approach is how to do the carpet, but I'm sure it won't be a big deal.
Here's a shot of the riser in the "normal" configuration:
And here it is with the rack pulled out and the TRACK 50 in place with the removable section moved:
