Designed Stairs is The Innovative Leader in Stair Design. We have developed many systems that provide a better quality product. Some are now widely used by other stair companies, while others are proprietary to Designed Stairs.
The system of locking newels into the stair structure was created by Designed Stairs, Inc. This method provides greater stability than the old way of bolting newels.
The Designed Stairs system of pinning iron balusters creates superior stability, fit and finish over the method used by other stair companies.
The industry standard method is to drill a large hole, then insert glue to secure the baluster. A boot must then be used to cover up the large hole and glue. This method is far less stable and will not last as long as the Designed Stairs' method.
