The Monograph stair calculator is used to determine the number of steps required for a given run of stairs. Additionally the calculator can solve for stair rise and run, stair angle, stringer length, step height, and tread depth
- The stringers are the strucural boards that run on either side of a staircase and are cut in a saw tooth pattern. The steps (treads) are attached to these stringers to create a rigid structure for a full stair construction.
- The horizontal boards that you step on are called treads. The treads or "steps" rest on top of the stringers and complete a stair assembly.
- Risers are optional but are often part of the stair structure. The risers are the vertical elements that cover the opening in the stairs and provide a bit more stability.
