Staircase and Railing Specifications


Specifying Ornamental Metals

Couturier knows well that a quality ornamental curved stairway, straight stairway or railing project begins with specifying a qualified manufacturer. The first and most important step in achieving a quality finish ornamental package is assigning it's own CSI Division of 05700, 05710, 05715 or 05720 into your specification.

Too often the assumption is made that ornamental metals are just an extension of the general metal fabrication division. By using the correct 05700 division, you can be assured that your project will be completed by qualified professionals who are specialized and experienced the industry. This will also ensure that your finished work will adhere to the building codes and maintain it's beauty through the years.

If you're a specifier, architect or designer, we offer a wide variety of resources for you during the planning phase of your project. Even though metal forming is an old art, the craft is ripe for innovation and we keep up on the latest developments, tools and techniques which we share with our clients here.

We offer spiral staircase design as well as architectural railing design and even ornamental railing design tools here for you to use in your project.

When you need to utilize our services for the actual fabrication of components, this area of our site offers ornamental staircase and railing specifications. Most of these resources are available digitally for import directly into your project documents.
