Double End Starting Step
The double end starting step is by far the most popular of the starting steps. It is used at the first step of a stairway when both sides of the stairs are open. Besides the cosmetic appeal, double end starting steps allow the balusters to form a wider, more stable base for the end of the handrail. Handrails that simply end at the post at the foot of the stairs can be less sturdy, even with a thick post. Sizing for a double end tread is based on the throat measurement. However, we can custom make the step to your needs based on measurements that you provide. Includes tread, riser and universal trim. Available in a variety of wood types.
