Curved Stairs

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I uploaded a screenshot of the curved stairs I designed and I'm looking for a couple of things.

1. the radius angle / length of each stringer

2. The rise & run layout marks for each stringer as obviously these change from stringer to stringer.

 

I will not have the space to lay it out manually on the floor as this is a remodel with no room to do that so I plan on doing the layout (stringer layout framework / forms) at work with a trammel board and plywood to build the form arc pieces

 

Forgive my ignorance as this software is new to me.

 

Thank you,

 

Bill

What is "radius angle"?

The radius angle would be the angle of the radius of the inside stringer and the outside stringer

Can you say what measurement you need?

 

Radius is a linear measurement, there is no angle involved.

 

What angle do you need?

 

I'd want the length of the red lines for each segment. Knowing the dimension of the tread you should have all you need to do the layout.

Yes you would be correct.

That would give me the location of the treads but not the depth on the outside stringer or the inside one.

That being the risers should stay the same at 7 5/16 on either stringer correct.

This pic is shown with the walk line 12" in from the edge

The treads are 40" long and obviously tapered

You should be able to take a measurement at any of the green lines.

 

Turn off the hand rail display.
