A 90º staircase is a common stair configuration which utilizes a left or right turn. It’s often used to save space in homes where a straight staircase would interfere with the living space.
A switchback staircase rises halfway in one direction up to a landing, then turns back and up to the second floor. The switchback metal stringer provides support for both sections of stairs.
A U shaped stringer is most commonly used in a steep, narrow opening for a staircase. It utilizes three shorter stringer sections connected by two landings.
Upper landings will sit between a longer lower stringer and a shorter upper stringer.
Middle landings will sit between evenly sized upper and lower stringers.
Lower landings will sit between a smaller lower stringer, and a longer upper stringer.

Surface mounted posts are screwed directly down on the surface of a tread with 2.5” screws. These posts have a 3.75” x 3.75” plate and can be mounted on the front, middle, or back of the tread if needed.
Similar to the name, these posts mount to the side of a thick tread utilizing a mounting plate and two bolts. Of the three options, this type of mounting provides the most walking space.
Inset Tread Side Mounts are the same posts as the Tread Side Mounts, but they are fastened into a cut out in the side of the tread. There is no need for a foot cover, and the side of the post is in line with the side of the tread.
