Don't paint it if it's stainless steel, or don't make it out of stainless if it's going to be painted. It's the stainless that's going to be much more costly than the powder coating.

I'm sorry it's actually brushed aluminum that they will be making them out of. Does this make a difference?

I couldn't tell you even if I happened to remember it off the top of my head... you will have o talk to your structural engineer to size it for you. Each stair is different and the stringer will depend on the span and your local codes. Good Luck!

No, it's all made of flat bars, angles and C channels. It is powder coated though.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Level Changes: Defining Spaces
The center of this three-story townhouse on a steep site in San Francisco uses a level change of a few steps to break down the open living space. In the position of the camera is the living-dining area, and up the steps is the kitchen and an adjacent family room. This change in level is a natural fit with the flow of the house.
Lisa Frederick added this to Home Styles: Split Personality
These stairwells also incorporate glass panels, but the heavy black railings give them a completely different spin. The dark color helps to define the expanse of space.
