4 7+(%0,0'#89:+6/;+-## After participating in this presentation, you will be able to:!!!! Identify and recognize the overall parameters, general code requirements, and preliminary design outcomes in a building stair design. Determine the specific requirements and options for stair treads, risers, and landings in building stair systems. Differentiate between the specific requirements and options for stair guards and handrails in commercial and institutional buildings. Formulate construction specifications for steel stair systems working in concert with recognized standards and specialty fabricators.

5 1&<%-+#8<.=,0+# Section 1: General Stair Design Overview Section 2: Stair Design Specifics: Treads, Risers and Landings Section 3: Stair Design Specifics: Guards and Handrails Section 4: Steel Stair Construction Specifications

6 Section 1 General Stair Design Overview The Architect will typically determine the following:! Building Parameters! Applicable Codes and Standards! Basic Design Decisions

7 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview General Definitions: Stair: A change in elevation, consisting of one or more risers. (International Building Code) (IBC) Step: A rest for the foot in ascending or descending as one of a series of structures consisting of a riser and tread. (Merriam Webster Dictionary) Stairway: One or more flights of stairs, either exterior or interior, with the necessary landings and platforms connecting them, to form a continuous and uninterrupted passage from one level to another. (IBC)

8 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview Building Parameters: The Architect working in concert with the Owner will always determine the overall building criteria and parameters that affect the general and specific details of stair design.

9 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview Building Parameters: 1. Building Type: Fundamentally, determining if the building is classified as a commercial, institutional, multi-family, mixed use, or other building application. Each type has obvious differences in use and code requirement calculations

10 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview Building Parameters: 2. Floor to floor or landing heights The physical vertical dimension that each building stair is servicing needs to be determined and finalized Generally, steel stair systems service up to 12 vertical rise maximum before connecting to a landing or level

11 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview Building Parameters: 3. Overall building design requirements The Architect and other design professionals determine the overall design standards for the building including:!!!! Aesthetics/Appearance Durability Materials Function

12 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview Applicable Codes and Standards Virtually all of the specific dimensions of most stair components and spaces are governed by a code or standard. Materials, surface texture, and other product specific items are also subject to regulation.

13 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview Applicable Codes and Standards 1. International Building Code (IBC) Means of Egress: A continuous and unobstructed path of vertical and horizontal egress travel from any occupied portion of a building or structure to a public way. (IBC) Enclosed stairways are typically a critical part of a means of egress and exit and regulated with many very prescriptive details.

14 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview Applicable Codes and Standards 1. International Building Code (IBC) Some recent updates include details of:! Minimum egress width! Open riser changes! Handrail graspability! Required locations for guards! Limitations on guard openings! Luminous markings in egress path! Required areas of refuge

(IBC) Stairways often include these areas within their enclosure.

16 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview Applicable Codes and Standards 2. Handicapped Accessibility Requirements IBC, ANSI and ADA all impose requirements for stairways and components to be accessible for non-wheelchair based handicaps including:! Treads and Risers! Nosings! Handrails

17 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview Applicable Codes and Standards 3. General Safety Standards Workplace safety governed by OSHA standards that address stairs, handrails, guardrails, and slip resistance. ASTM Standard F1637 addresses Standard Practice for Safe Walking Surfaces.

18 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview General Design Decisions Architects and Designers determine:! Stair Configuration to fit with building design: straight run, switch back, angled, scissor stair, custom, etc.!

Applicable Code and Standard requirements to determine design features such as occupancy load for stair, stair width and handicapped accessibility requirements.

19 Section 1: General Stair Design Overview General Design Decisions Steel Stair Fabricators/Manufacturers can use the General Design Decisions from architects to develop the specific details of the fabricated stair design.
