In an effort to set clear expectations and provide practical design information for the steel industry, AISC developed Design Guide 34 in an effort to set clear expectations and provide practical design information for the steel industry related to the framing around stairways and the structural support of stairs themselves. The guide provides information related to the design and layout of steel elements for steel-framed stairways, guards, handrails and related components. Background information regarding stairways, code requirements and design methods is presented, and complete design examples is also included. You can read more about the contents of Design Guide 34 in the December 2018 Modern Steel Construction article "Stepping Up" at www.modernsteel.com.
