Newel Post

A newel post is the central supporting pillar of a staircase. It can also refer to an upright post that supports and/or terminates the handrail of a stair banister.

Baluster/Spindle

Balusters and spindles are an important part of the staircase because they provide a foundation for the hand railing as well as an element of design.

Hand/Wall Rail

Hand rails provide safety, stability and support for staircases and come in many different styles including plowed or unplowed. Wall rail is attached to a wall with rail brackets and can be paired with a decorative rosette.

Stair Nosing

The rounded edge of a stair tread that projects over the riser.

Tread

A stair tread is the horizontal portion of a set of stairs on which a person walks.

Riser

Risers are the vertical pieces on the stairs. The height of each step is called the rise.

Skirt Board

Skirt boards, also called stringers, are the lowest part of an interior wall along a stair case. Skirt boards provide a decorative element to your stairs while covering any gap between the stairs and the wall.
