New Metal Panel System from L.J. Smith Stair Systems
Searching for the newest look in modern stairway design? Look no further. L.J. Smith Stair Systems has introduced a Metal Panel System that boasts a “welded” look that complements most modern or urban decors.
Best of all, the Linear Metal Panel System (part of the Linear Collection for L.J. Smith) comes in pre-assembled panels for ease of installation.
“This unique stairway system features a simplified installation process for open tread stairways, kneewall stairways and level run applications,” says Craig Kurtz, president of L.J. Smith Stair Systems. “The seven-level run panels are available to meet rail heights of three different sizes with five-rake panel widths available."
The pre-assembled nature of the panels speeds up installation. The system also includes fast-install spacer newels, panel posts, square nose designed treads and handrails.
Linear Metal Panels can be pre-built to fit and only require a few screw holes drilled for installation. A special easy-install feature of the system is that no glue is needed, no sanding, no code issues, no drilling of baluster holes, no marking and or cutting to fit. Plus, every rake and level panel is predrilled on the top rung and comes with screws for easy attachment to the handrail. Screws are also included for the bottom of each panel for flush mount or curb wall installations.
The Metal Panel System comes with Low Sheen Black as a standard finish. Additional powder-coated and Pantone® paint colors can be ordered so that the rail system complements the home interior. Handrail options come in Red Oak and Hard Maple to create a clean, refined look for the stair system.
