Comprehensive SpecsArchitectural Specs

Utilize this SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify shop-fabricated metal stairs assemblies.

Steel stairs can utilize treads and landings that are steel pans filled with concrete after installation, metal bar gratings, metal safety grip channels, or precast concrete.

These stairs are typically assembled in individual flights at the shop, then installed and finished in the field.

Stringers are typically steel channels but can be fabricated from steel tubes or plates. Steel pipe or tube railings are also included.

The quality level of steel stairs varies from Industrial at the low end to Architectural at the upper end.

The difference is primarily in the stair assemblies’ aesthetics, including connections, tolerances, and welding.
