Class Detail


Course Description

The successful completion of this class will prepare the participant to identify different stair types and designs, along with the Uniform Building Code requirements for each. Students will learn how to layout and construct stairs, landings, newels, and handrails. Practice in calculating unit of stair rise from total rise and determining unit of stair run from a given fixed total run will be learned in the classroom and practiced in the shop. Calculations will also include layout of stringer drop for various treads and finish floor. Practical applications will emphasize laying-out risers and treads on stair stringers using the framing square fitted with stair gauges. The construction of landings, platforms, and form work for self-supporting concrete stairs will also be covered along with the unique construction of the quarter-turn winder staircase. Techniques to estimate and list stair building materials will be applied. The construction of temporary access stairs and ramps in compliance with Cal/OSHA will also be discussed.
