Custom Side Stringer Stairs

Side stringer, also known as “Pan-Stair” or “Pan Style,” are a versatile and contemporary style of straight staircase. They can be made to serve as an architectural element of your home or office, or act as simple stairs for a garage, deck, or industrial application. The stringers trap the treads in on the sides which allows the treads to be set in between.

The term ‘Pan-Stair’ is used when a staircase has treads that are like a pan or dish that will receive a fill, often cement, tile, or stone. Their treads are typically flanged up in the front and back to create the “pan” look, but if they are flanged down in the front, we will be able to fit this stair with any type of tread material.

Tread & Riser Options

Thanks to their versatility, side stringer stairs can accommodate practically any kind of tread and/or riser making designing for your unique space that much easier. Side stringers can come with either open or closed risers, and you can choose from a variety of tread options including:

  • Cement (the most popular option)
  • Stone
  • Tile
  • Wood
  • Diamond plate steel

If the stairs have open risers, we can provide riser space limiters to help reduce the space to less than 4″. We can also flange the back edge of the tread up as a cost-efficient way to reduce the riser space.
