In response to increased interest and demand from builders, L. J. Smith® Stair Systems now offers nationwide availability of the Metal Panel System in the company’s popular Linear Collection. The modern-style pre-assembled panels can now be found from coast-to-coast for both residential and commercial projects.
The pre-assembled panels in the Linear Collection Metal Panel System do not require installation by a specialized stair builder, as trim carpenters can easily install the system. The modular system includes fast-install spacer newels, panel posts, square nose designed treads, and handrails.
Linear Metal Panels are 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, and no marking 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.
Made in the United States, 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 or commercial interior. Square nosed treads, landing treads, false tread kits, handrail, and handrail fitting options come in red oak and hard maple to create a clean, refined look for the stair system. One of the most popular aspects of the handrails with the Metal Panel System is to end in a graceful waterfall. The flowing handrail ends at the floor, complementing contemporary and urban design settings.
