L.J. Smith Stair Systems Enhances Linear Collection
The ever-evolving Linear Collection from L.J. Smith® Stair Systems now includes a variety of metal newels. Launched in 2016, the popular contemporary stair system includes marine-grade stainless steel cable along with brushed stainless steel tube for a sleek stairway appearance.
"The metal newel posts married with the stainless steel cables creates a stunning stairway system for both interior and exterior use," says Craig Kurtz, president of L.J. Smith Stair Systems. "We're now offering open tread, kneewall, level run and transition metal newels in this product line so that installers and homeowners can easily gain a truly complete metal railing system."
Kurtz points out that the company's modern and code-compliant handrail options (available in Red Oak or Hard Maple) help create a clean, refined look for the stair system. "From start to finish we offer every component needed to design a customized metal rail system," says Kurtz. "Whether someone wishes to have our original wood newel offerings matched up with the stainless steel cables, or the newer metal newels, this sleek-looking stair system makes a strong statement in a home or commercial setting."
L.J. Smith offers a dozen new metal newel posts, all sized and pre-drilled for simple installation of the company's Marine Grade 316 stainless steel cables and fitting. Box treads are available to create a modern and open designed stairway. The company also offers newel mounting kits, post protector tubes, and reminds installers that the swageless cable fittings provided by L.J. Smith eliminate the need for expensive equipment.
