Double Stringer Staircases

Paragon’s double stringer floating stairs have, as the name suggests, two support beams that make up the staircase frame. Our engineers design and review these floating stairs to provide maximum strength and ensure the safety of your staircase. The dual stringer designs spaces out the weight distribution between two steel stair stringers without sacrificing the open frame. Paragon’s SMA certified designers can help you design the right double stringer staircase for both residential and commercial spaces.

When installing a staircase in your home, it needs to be supported correctly. That’s where stair stringers come in.

What Is a Stair Stringer?

The stringer on your staircase is a long piece under the sides or center of your stairs that supports the risers or treads of the stairs. They’re used with floating staircases to provide support without interrupting the aesthetic.

Choosing the Right Stringer Staircase

Depending on the aesthetic and purpose of your stairs, the stair supporter you choose can be designed a few different ways. Prefabricated steel stair stringers come in a three main styles: block, mono, or double stringer staircases. Mono and block stair stringers are the most minimalist, since they feature only one support beam. But don’t be fooled, they can be very sturdy. Double stringers provide support on either side of the stairs, distributing the weight evenly for wider stairs or heavier loads.

The Right Materials

Although stringers can be made out of a variety of materials, metal stair stringers are the most common. They’re extremely sturdy and look great with either wood or metal step risers. Steel stair stringers are particularly popular.

The Right Look

To achieve the floating staircase of your dreams, choosing the right stringer is a must. A block or mono stringer typically runs underneath the center of the stairs, a great option if you want your wood or steel stair risers to stand out and look like they’re really floating. On the other hand, a double stringer running up both sides of the staircase can add support and enhance the profile of your stairs, making them the centerpiece of a room. This is ideal for wider staircases that might warrant additional support.
