The Contemporary spiral stair style comes with the same square posts and balusters as the Traditional, but a taller handrail (1-1/4″ thick by 4″ deep) that can be made with a finger groove if your building codes require. The Contemporary is designed for the balusters to be mounted on the outside of the rail to fit with modern and rustic interior designs.
The Smart Spiral Handrail is an optional order for the Contemporary style. All diameters of the Smart Spiral style are supplied with a square center column. This rail is composed of individual wood blocks (each 1-1/4″ thick by 4-1/4″ deep) bound snugly together. The Smart Spiral rail literally “figures out” its required spiral path as it is installed. The rail offers an off beat look for both rustic and modern decors.
