Design straight stairs using the Stairs module, available with Graitec Advance PowerPack for Autodesk® Advance Steel. Straight stair configurations allow you to quickly create differing flight arrangements, depending on height, space, and number of floors. The Stairs module in Graitec Advance PowerPack offers numerous types of straight stairs, using standard frames that can be easily edited and customized for your requirements.
Create one flight straight stairs in two steps: choose the starting point and define the height of the stairs. If selected, an intermediate landing is automatically placed on the middle of the flight, and its position can be changed by modifying the number of treads before and after the landing.
L – Shaped with two flights
Two flights straight stairs with a quarter landing also called L – Shaped straight stairs can be easily created with just four clicks: select the starting, turning, and ending points, followed by a click to define the height of the stair.
Z – Shaped with two flights
Z – Shaped two flights straight stairs can be created with five quick clicks: one for the starting point, two for the turning points which make the Z shape, one for the finishing point, and one for the height.
U – Shaped with three flights
Create a U – Shaped three flight straight stair with double quarter landings, in 5 clicks: one for the starting point, two for the turning points, one for the finishing point and one for the height.
Landings can be added at the bottom of the top of the stairs. You can choose from two types of landings – either grated or plate oriented left, right or centered, at the specific dimensions you need.
Stairs with more than one ramp can have intermediate platforms added automatically.
Plate landings are, as the name suggests, made of metal plates. This type of landings can be additionally extended either at the nose or at the toe, to obtain closed risers. Plate landings can be placed at the top or bottom of the flight, with a left, center or right orientation.
Grated landings allow you to select the grating class and size, according to the class selection. Closures can also be provided, to seal the riser opening on steel stairs from pedestrian traffic. Grated landings can be placed at the top or bottom of the flight, and can be oriented left, center or right.
Stringers are also featured, for stairs with open sides, between two walls or against a wall. The stringers can easily be adjusted from the dialog box, regardless of type (either open or closed), and can be made from plates of beams. For each type of stringer selected, there is an option to have it on the left, right or both sides of the stairs, depending on the type, shape, or space it is required.
