We used 12 gauge but you really should do a mock up as there is some subjectivity to how much deflection is acceptable.

I think that was specified late in the project. I will see if I can track it down for you. John DeForest

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Beautiful Stairs: Safety Meets Style
This unique stair with perforated steel steps (featured in my ideabook on "artful stairs") uses solid steel guardrails in the center of the stair. In this way they become the antithesis of the lighter steps, making them appear more stable than their translucency implies.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Getting a Feel for Steel
Perforated stainless steel treads and risers disappear into the wall here, reinforcing the lightness of the composition. The folded steel plate and treads each assert different weightless characteristics as the viewing angle changes. When viewed from the side, the blackened steel guard sculpturally anchors the vertical volume of space. When viewed from above, it virtually disappears, forming a thin black line chasing downward. Contrasting the darker steel, the lighter treads and risers cascade from above like water, forming a gauze-like scrim.

DeForest Architects The architect here created a light-filled stair tower by using thin folded plates of steel to support the perforated metal treads. The folding reinforces the stair assembly and doubles as a guardrail — and makes the stair an art object.
