In order to better assist you in designing the railing of your stairs, we are going to need some dimensions as described in the diagram below.
In addition, we need photos of the stairs to better visualize your project. One photo should show all of the steps.
The angle can be calculated using an angle finder app on your phone. The iPhone comes built in with the Compass app to calculate the angle . For Android/Google phone users we recommend this app
The angle of the stairs measurement
Please place a straight piece of wood that covers as many steps as possible so the measurement is a an average measurement of the angle. The run and rise of the stairs are not 100% equal and are not 100% horizontal and vertical. Measuring the average angle of the stairs is the best field measurment that can be provided along with the nose to nose distance as shown in the below drawing.
The stairs information needed are the following (See below image)
- The nose to nose distance
- The angle of the stairs
- Pictures that show the full length of the stairs with the total number of steps

will be provided for custom stairs projects. Inline Design also makes available information about and to ensure proper alignment.
