Spiral Staircase Building Code
Paragon knows that working with local building code is a complex process. That’s why we work with you every step of the way to ensure you meet all of the necessary requirements of your project. Our SMA Certified customer representatives work with you to cover all of the code bases.
Compliance in Each Line
Because Paragon understands the importance of meeting spiral staircase code with many projects, yet we also understand the value of having multiple options to meet code, we design all our spiral stair lines with stair code compliant features available. This allows you the freedom to pick your favorite look while maintaining the ability to meet stair code.
Code at Any Price
Because Paragon offers code compliant options for each line, we also offer code components at every price point. So your budget will not get in the way of your ability to meet code for stairs. It doesn’t matter if you need a stair for your shop, business, foyer, or deck. This availability simplifies your shopping process by giving you the quality, safety, and product you need and want all in one stair manufacturer regardless of your stair need.
Stair Code Features
Paragon considers all parameters of your IRC and IBC stair code needs. Baluster gaps of no greater than 4”, rise height from tread to tread of no greater than 9 ½”, riser gaps no greater than 4”, headroom of at least 6’ 6”, railing height of 34” to 38”, stair diameters of at least 5’, clear walking path, and more are each available in all of our stair builds.
Working with Local Authority
Each local authority is different in their interpretation of stair code compliance. So what’s true for one state may not be true for the next state over—or the next county over. So always check with your local building authority before completing an order if you know code for stairs will be an issue. And Paragon will work with you to make any adjustments needed.
Designed for Your Home
Safety can mean different things to different families. Especially with children or the elderly. The same applies to small pets. Tell Paragon’s SMA Certified staff your particular situation or needs and we’ll custom design and build everything from railing and well enclosure to treads to make sure you’re satisfied with the level of safety your stair provides for your family.
