Stair Stringers

Attention To Detail With Quality Staircase Stringers

Stair stringers are a critical component of a staircase, as they provide support for the treads and risers. They are typically made of wood or metal and attached to the staircase’s structure. The number of stair stringers used in a staircase design will depend on the width of the staircase and the weight that it needs to support.

There are two types of stair stringers: cut stringers and open stringers. Cut stringers have a cutout section that is visible on one or both sides of the staircase, while open stringers are visible on both sides and are often used in contemporary staircase designs.

When designing a staircase, it is important to consider the weight load that the stringers will need to support, as well as the overall design and aesthetic of the staircase.

A professional staircase builder like Craftsman Stairs can help you determine the best type of stringer for your staircase and ensure that they are properly installed to provide a safe and functional staircase. Contact us today to learn more about our services.

Bringing The Old And New Staircase Design Into Your Home Or Business

Brisbane and The Sunshine Coast

Combining the old and new in staircase design can create a unique and stunning look for your home or business. Here are some ideas for blending traditional and modern elements:

  • Mixing Materials: Use traditional materials, such as wood or stone, in a modern way. For example, combining a traditional wooden tread with a sleek glass railing creates a beautiful contrast.
  • Integrating Lighting: Adding lighting to a traditional staircase can give it a modern twist, making it both functional and visually appealing.
  • Combining Shapes: Mixing traditional and modern shapes can create an eye-catching staircase design. For example, combining a traditional curved staircase with modern square balusters creates a unique look.
  • Using Different Finishes: Using different finishes, such as paint, stain, or metal, can create an interesting blend of old and new.
  • Adding Details: Adding modern details, such as glass panel inserts or decorative metal elements, to a traditional staircase can give it a fresh and updated look.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the standard stair stringer In Australia?

The standard for stair stringers in Australia is regulated by the National Construction Code (NCC) and is covered in Part 3.8.2, Stairs of the NCC Volume One. The NCC specifies minimum requirements for the design and construction of stairways, including stair stringers. These requirements are intended to ensure the safety and accessibility of stairways in all types of buildings.

According to the NCC, stair stringers must be able to support the load they are designed to carry, be properly attached to the structure, and be of a size and strength that is appropriate for the staircase design. Additionally, the NCC specifies requirements for the size and spacing of stair treads and risers and for the slope and rise of each step.

In Australia, it is common to use timber stringers, although metal stringers can also be used in some circumstances. The choice of stringer material will depend on the specific requirements of the staircase design, including the weight load and the overall aesthetic.

To ensure that your staircase meets the standard requirements set by the NCC, it is important to work with a professional staircase builder like Craftsman Stairs.

Our team has extensive experience in designing and building stairways that meet the highest standards for safety and accessibility, and we can help you to create a staircase that is both beautiful and functional. Contact us today to learn more about our services.

What should I use for stair stringers?

The choice of material for stair stringers will depend on a number of factors, including the weight load they will need to support, the overall design and aesthetic of the staircase, and any specific requirements set by building codes or regulations.

Common materials for stair stringers include:

  • Timber: Timber is a popular choice for stair stringers due to its strength, durability, and versatility. It is a renewable resource that can be sustainably sourced and can be treated to resist moisture, insects, and fire.
  • Steel: Steel is a strong and durable material that is often used in commercial or industrial stairways. It is resistant to moisture, fire, and insects and is low-maintenance and long-lasting.
  • Concrete stringers are often used in outdoor or industrial stairways, as they are strong and durable and can withstand heavy loads. Concrete stringers are typically poured in place and can be moulded to match the shape and design of the staircase.
  • Aluminium: Aluminum is a lightweight and strong material that is often used in residential and commercial stairways. It is low-maintenance and resistant to moisture, fire, and insects, and it can be painted or finished to match the aesthetic of the staircase.

Regardless of the material you choose for your stair stringers, it is important to work with a professional staircase builder like Craftsman Stairs to ensure that they are designed and installed to meet the highest standards for safety and accessibility.
