Cast Iron Stair Treads, Risers and Landings

Richmond Iron makes complete custom cast iron staircase systems of treads, risers and landings for monumental stairs.

Cast Iron Stair Treads

Custom cast iron treads are an economical way to elevate the appearance of a staircase. Cast iron stair treads are engineered to be self-supporting and slip-resistant with custom bas-relief design. Maximize your engineering and your creativity with custom cast iron treads from Richmond Iron.

 

Cast Iron Stair Risers

Cast iron stair risers can be used to dress up a cast iron staircase in any style using openwork, bas-relief and even glass prisms. Richmond Iron offers three different stock designs of prisms that can be arranged in any pattern with custom cast iron risers. 

Cast Iron Stair Restoration

Richmond Iron reproduces historic cast iron stair castings for historically accurate restorations and modern use adaptions of cast iron staircases.

Glass Prisms

Cast iron stair treads, risers and landings can be furnished with glass prisms that can be illuminated to light up a cast iron staircase.

Blackened Rust Patina Finish for Cast Iron

By using a rust conversion product called Black Max from Rhomar Industries developed for salt trucks, Richmond Iron creates a durable and attractive black patina finish on cast iron stair treads, risers and landing panels. Save the planet, skip the paint.

Staircase Design

Custom cast iron stair treads, risers and landing panels are modeled in 3D CAD by Richmond Iron to allow CNC machining of foundry patterns for sand casting. All stairs have similar constraints to meet code and some details tend to repeat but every set of castings are designed and cast to order.

Foundry Patterns for Custom Castings

Richmond Iron makes foundry patterns for cast iron stair treads, risers and panels using 3D CAD/CAM software and CNC milling for rapid foundry tooling and casting. Custom casting stair treads, risers and landing panels is a streamlined process that ensures efficient staircase assembly.

3D CAD Design of Treads, Risers and Landing Panels

Richmond Iron uses 3D CAD/CAM software to design all stair tread, riser and landing panel castings and FEA stress simulation can be done to ensure longer spans meet deflection limits.

Ductile Iron Advantage

Richmond Iron only pours domestic ASTM certified iron from O. K. Foundry Co., Inc. including ASTM A536 Ductile Iron.

Ductile iron has the strength of steel and the low cost of cast iron. It is a miracle metal and can be used to cast structural cast iron treads that are self supporting over longer spans.
