And, we’re always adding new designs based on customer demand.  Color coordination is not a problem… we offer our iron balusters in eight powder-coated finishes.  American Cedar & Millwork is happy to represent the L J Smith Stair System line and the possibilities it brings to our customers.

Cable, Tube, and Panel Systems

Product Details

Our product line would not be complete if we didn’t carry cable, tube, and panel systems from L J Smith Stair Systems.  Sometimes a project calls for a stair system with more than iron or wooden balusters. We carry panel systems consisting of preassembled horizontal panels.  They are a favorite for easy installation.  Remember, though, that these panel systems are for indoor use only.  Cable Stair Systems are also easy to install and consist of horizontal cables as opposed to vertical balusters.  They are highly desirable for lasting beauty and low maintenance.  All of L J Smith Stair Systems, including our cable stair systems, are code compliant.

If you’re looking for something a bit different from the cable stair system, consider our tube stair system, with its modern look and easy installation. This system consists of horizontal tubes and can give just the right industrial look where needed.
