Delux Stairs - Stair Construction Calculator
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Create an ideal staircase with one simple measurement. Fine-tune the stairs to fit the space with an easy to use and understand, graphical interface.
Enter the total rise and the app calculates total run (base length or overall run), pitch (angle or slope), unit run (goings or tread), unit rise (rise or step height), and all other measurements. You can then adjust the total run to fit your available space or preferred tread materials. A unique feature to Delux Stairs fine-tunes the stringer to accommodate for differences in flooring thicknesses such as the tread thickness and upper and lower finished flooring. This ensures every step is identical, which is the difference between clumsy, dangerous, amateur stairs and professional-quality, comfortable, code-compliant stairs. Additional stair details, such as nosing, riser thickness and stringer dimensions are also calculated and adjustable.
Blueprint plans can be emailed in PDF which include platform position options, stringer peak positions, bottom step rise adjustments, top step run adjustments, and more.
The headroom clearance tool is unique to Delux Stairs and not only shows you top floor opening requirements with adjustable floor thicknesses, but also continuous headroom obstruction clearance from the top to the bottom of the stairs.
