Hi, attached is a standard pipe railing on steel pan stair, with center stringer and extensions, to share with everybody.

The landing of the stair set at 8'-8", the risers are 6.5" in the first flight; 6.4" in the second.

All railings are standard steel pipes, with proper extensions on top and bottom, and comply with CBC.

Here are some suggestions to Revit:

1. In order to create a stair with different riser in two flights, I had to create two stairs and add landing slab with nosings on the edge of the landing as well as alogn the secong floor, also add extruded stringers at landing. Would it be better to add those variables into program?

2. All extensions had to be created individualy. In order to have the horizontal pipes have the same spacing alogn the sloped portion and the landing, it was a pain. Can the Revit add this option into the program?

Thanks!

Hi, I had to break that file into two files, and each one is less than 2MB.

Hoping that for those interested, can put them together. The pdf file attached as well.

Can you describe a little more about how you made the custom handrail extensions?  I've struggled with this a lot.

Hi Michelalano,

All stair extensions have to be customized due to each stair has different rise and run, even stringer types will change the extensions. Please download my post and modify it, that might be easier. Basically, you have to calculate the slope of the stair first, then make those extensions; go to the stair properties, and change the start/end post of the balusters. Good luck!

The second file has "all required families" due to the upload file size limitation.

Open both files, load all families in the second file into the first file, you can reconstruct that stair. If all done properly, you will get the same result as shown in the PDF file in the first download.

Take a look on that PDF file, you can see the railing jonits at the top and bottom of the railing, they are all one step away from the top and bottom, that was the trick.

CDWdavid, I have load your families to my project and under Balluster Placement I changed the Baluster Family to CDW-HR-Bracket-to-Wall-Landing and Wall-Slope and play around with "base/top offsets" and "dist. from previous," I also tried to change the Baluster Family to bracket under "start, end Post" section and I can't seem to get them right. You talked about finding the right slope of the stairs so get them right. Could you please be a little more specific about that. I have learned by myself a geat deal about stairs so far but I can't seem to figure out the brackets. I appreciate your help and time David!

Sorry, I don't have Revit at home, and that thread was posted almost seven years ago.

Here are two things might help.

1. Take a look at the top and bottom baluster. The top one starts with the top landing; the bottom one has to be one tread more from the last step.

2. The sloping part of both balusters have to match the slope of the stair.

These are just very basic geometry. The old railing of Revit started and ended at the nosing. I haven't try them with the newer Revit railing yet.

Hope that helps.
