I want to instal some LED lights into my stairs. The LED light are 1" diameter and I want to fit one every other step. To do this I will need to drill a 1" hole in the side of the staircase. my concern/worry is, will this comply to building regulations, and will it weaken the stairs? Is there anyone who can advise me or give me any information on where i would be able to find the answer.
Thank you in advance!
i'm guessing staircase is made of wood. Depending on it's design, is it support from underneath or not will have a bearing on it's structual soundness but an inch hole every other step should not create a great problem. But you must be carefull when installing electrics directly in to wooden stuctures as electric circuit give oof heat, part p of building regs applies for all new circiuts in domestic installation so you need a qualified electrician in
