There's much to see here. We want to make sure you're familiar with the names of all the parts. It will help you understand what we're discussing on our quotes and conversations. What's a top cap? What's a bottom plate?
Top Cap, Wide or Narrow?

What is a 7-11 run-rise of a stairway? What is the degree of angle of your stairs, how do you find out? In this video we show you how to determine what the run and rise and angle of your stairs are. We build our standard posts to be 7-11 or 32 degrees. If you need something other than 7-11 or 32 degrees, we can build it, but it is a custom post. We just need to know what you need for your stair handrail
Handrails do have very specific measurements and requirements to meet. So do stairs in general. Here are the links to the Municipality of Anchorage code requirements.
These 2 handouts will clarify how to make sure your handrail and stairs meet the code. This code meets the International Building Code and the International Existing Building Code.
