Our legs and platform supports are pre-engineered but we have a lot of flexibility with the legs to fit within your application. Our computerized system calculates the correct leg size for your stair and platform configuration, and for non-standard designs, our design team works with the customer service representative to determine the best scenario for your application.

Legs are constructed out of either 3” or 4” square tubing, depending on the strength requirements of your stair height and platform size. Most units are designed for four legs, but our engineer will review conditions where fewer or more legs are required. For taller applications, bracing is added to the legs for additional strength, with the need for this determined both by our computer system and our design team.
If you are connecting the platform to a wall, depending on the structure, often the four leg system will be reduced to two legs
The legs typically connect at the 3/8” thick baseplate at the bottom using 4 bolts, and at the top ¼” base plate to the under side of the platform using 3 bolts. For multi-level stair systems and towers, the legs can run on the outside of the platform and attach from the side.
