The Stairs and Rails module consists of stair stringers and rails for metal or concrete stairs, ramp rails, wall rails and level handrail. Stair stringers and sloping handrail can be drawn sloping in either direction. All handrail is drawn using double lines, piece marked and shop billed. The handrail may be multi-line rail or picket rail. Dialog boxes are used for entering stair stringer information allowing you to review and edit all input before continuing.
