Curved Side Stringers
Versatile yet stylish, the curved side stringer staircase can be freestanding or attached to a wall, making it a popular option for homes and businesses. Curved side stringers are one of three curved staircase design options that we at Acadia Stairs offer.
Also known as pan-style stairs, curved side stringers have supportive beam-like structures on each side of the stair, and riser plates in addition to tread plates. The term pan-stair comes from traditional cement-fill pan-type stairs, but these pans can be made to receive stone, wood or even glass steps.
Curved pan stairs are completely customizable. Our design team will work with you to fit your space, style, and traffic pattern.
- Can be attached to a side wall or free-standing
- Prominent feature is the stringer or skirt
- Ribbon-like appeal as they flow up the curvature of the staircase
- Wide variety of tread options available
This type of stair typically has the handrail installed outboard of the stringer or in-line with the stringer. It is possible to have the balusters attach to the treads, but it is more common to attach to the stringer alone.
Side Stringer Types
There are many ways to make your side stringer stair unique to your space; it can feature a variety of materials, open or closed risers, and different types of stringers. When designing and building our side stringer curved staircases, we tend to work within the following stringer types:

- 3/8″ x 10″ Plate
- 10″ x 1.5″ x 8.4lbs Channel
