    I seem to recall a debate from before but i think they fall into the other catergory, max rise of 190mm min going of 250mm. but to be fair anything less than 42 degrees with 10 inch tread will be okay

    some insurers are now asking if a property has decking round it/so called fire risk.

    many caravan parks won't allow wooden decking for this reason.
