1
Competency: Design and Draw Stair Systems Objective: Explain the calculations for rise, run, total rise, total run, and floor cutout.

2
Building Considerations Minimum headroom = 6’-8” Riser height = 7” to 7-5/8” Riser material thickness = ¾” Tread depth = 10” to 11-1/2” Tread material thickness = 1-1/4” Tread width = 36” clear above/below handrail Handrail height = 30” to 38”

3
Building Considerations Guardrail heights Required if landing is 30” above floor or grade Minimum height = 36” Vertical members spacing maximum = 4” Do not allow passage of 6” diameter sphere

4
Building Considerations Require handrail for 4 or more risers Minimum 1-1/2” between handrail and wall Handgrip does not exceed 2-5/8” in cross-section Local codes for winders, spiral stairs, illumination, etc Nosing projects 1-1/8” to 1-1/2”

5
General Design Rules Slope (rise-to-run) ratio between 30 0 and 35 0 Sum or two risers & one tread equals approximately 25” Riser height multiplied by tread width equals approximately 75” Sum of one riser & one tread equals 17” to 18”

6
Stair Calculation Total rise Distance: finished lower floor to finished Thickness of ceiling material Width of floor joist Thickness of subfloor Thickness of finished floor Example: 8’-0” (gypsum board or drywall) 1/2” (2”x 8” joist) 7-1/4” (1/2” plywood sheathing) 1/2” (floor & underlayment) 1” Total Rise =8’-10 ¼”

7
Stair Calculation Number of risers Convert TOTAL RISE to inches Divide TOTAL RISE by 7 Example: TOTAL RISE = ” / 7 = Number of risers = 15 or 16

8
Stair Calculation Height of riser TOTAL RISE inches Divide by number of risers Each riser must be equal in height Example: ” / 15 TOTAL RISE = 7.08”

9
Stair Calculation Ensure accuracy of riser and tread dimensions One less tread than risers

10
Stair Calculation Total Run Tread width multiplied by number of treads Example Tread width = 10” Number of treads = 14 TOTAL RUN =140”

11
Stair Calculation Floor cutout size (upper level) Lay out scaled drawing and calculated rise/run information Draw a line, along stair nosing, from bottom tread to top tread Measure vertical line representing headroom Draw a parallel line from bottom tread to top tread Measure resulting stairwell rough opening
