Straight Staircases can be field cut using Standard Profiles
Straight run staircases are fairly simple and can be field cut by others in place using standard balustrade profiles. The example above shows a standard BA-303 balustrade staircase.
Baluster and Newel Post Considerations
There are two things to keep in mind when designing straight run balustrade staircases.
First, the balusters will need to be taller for the sloped conditions so that they can be field cut by others in place.
The second consideration is the newel post at the bottom of the stairs. It will need to be slightly taller than the standard newel post in order to receive the sloping balustrade. Please consider this illustration.
Notice that the field cut baluster and the newel post at the bottom of the stairs are taller than their counterparts in the level balustrade.
