American Stair Corporation, Inc.

Since 1956, American Stair Corporation has been America's leading design/build source for metal stairs and railings. They specialize in contract specification sections 055100 (pre-engineered stairs) and 055000 (custom stair designs).

Their product line includes not only the typical pans for standard field poured concrete, checkerplate, and bar grating treads and landings, but also their labor- and time-saving FasTrack®, Endura, and ReadyStep® tread designs. These exclusive treads have been specified again and again by both Architects and Structural Engineers for projects nationwide.

Standard rail choices include multi-strand horizontal, 2 & 3 strand vertical picket, and woven wire mesh infill panels. When put together, these components produce a high quality, precision manufactured stair system that saves the project valuable time and installation dollars.

As an added bonus, your stair system comes with a limited warranty for the life of the building.

Imagine a stair unit arriving on the job site with the stair treads of your choice, installed in the stringer of your choice, and shipped with the railing of your choice. That's what you'll get when you specify American Stair!

Meeting Standards and Codes

American Stair's stair units are typically designed and fabricated to support 100 lbs. per sq. ft. live load plus material dead load at L/360 deflection. Railings are typically designed and fabricated to support 50 lbs. per linear foot live load, or a concentrated load of 200 lbs. at any point of the top strand. They can also accommodate higher loading requirements when necessary.

For additional safety, materials are non-combustible and products meet or exceed applicable national building codes including ANSI-A1171.1, BOCA, INTERNATIONAL BUILDING CODE (IBC), NFPA101 LIFE SAFETY 2003, SBCCI, UBC, ADA, and relevant AISC, ASTM, and AWS standards.

Fabrication and Shipment

Skilled personnel and experienced craftsmen work in our fully automated facilities to ensure that every stair assembly is fabricated to meet your building's exacting standards. After fabricating, stair units are assembled, primed, and shipped ready for installation. Optional factory-attached and easily removable OSB exterior grade tread covers are available for FasTrack®, Endura, and ReadyStep® treads. These covers add protection during construction and reduce final clean-up costs. Galvanizing is also available if specified.
