Floating Stairs For New Construction

You’re building a new home. Maybe you’re a builder and you’ve been here many times before. Or maybe you’re new to this—you’re building your first home and are looking for a little inspiration.No matter where you fall on this spectrum, you’re about to start an important project need certain assurances that this home will be exactly what you or your client is looking for. Viewrail is here to help.

Your living space is so important, and we believe that the stairway should be a stand-out piece that adds another dimension to your home. Viewrail FLIGHT helps you do just that.


The Flexibility of Floating Stairs

We know that a major concern when starting a new construction project is timing. When can you put the staircase in without incurring damage? What construction stairs do you need to get in the interim? When should you hire an installation team?

Viewrail’s FLIGHT floating stairs help alleviate these concerns. What makes this modern staircase so perfect for new construction is that you have options. As soon as your joists go up on your house, FLIGHT can be installed and used as construction stairs. Just let us know, and we’ll wrap the stringer in a protecting poly sleeve. Then leave your finished treads in the box and install construction treads until the rest of the house finished. But FLIGHT can also be the very last thing you put install.

With no welding or fabrication on-site, and only needing attachment points at the header and footer for most projects, you have flexibility when you install. You just have to make to bolt through a triple 2x or a double LVL at the header and lag into the same blocking on the footer.
