S-Turn Railing
1 Attachment(s)
I am installing a railing that has an S-turn where it transitions from open risers to closed risers at the cieling. I know that usually the balusters leave the railing at the s-turn and then run from the tread to the cieling. Has anyone ever seen a stair where the balusters follow the s-trun and attatch to the railing all the way up to the top of the stairs?

Run the rail into the ceiling and put a wall mounted rail on the other wall.

Thanks Keith. That is defenitly the best solution but unfortunatly I have a small window on the oposite wall. The wall mounted railing would cut right across the window for the last three steps.
