“The universal stair bracket is to this decade what the joist hanger was to the 70's.” - Steve Peplin, President of GoPro Construction Solutions
Our “Best of…” series from the National Hardware Show continues this week with a better way to build stairs, according to GoPro Construction Solutions, who introduced the universal stair bracket. This bracket system was designed by Canadian master carpenter Eric Gobeil as an attempt to save builders time, money and headaches. With pre-stamped measurements on each bracket, the system was created to reduce effort spent measuring and marking the stringers as one builds a staircase. Screwing the steel brackets into the wood stringers compared to nailing wood to wood for conventional stairs is likely to result in less squeaking and, ultimately, a stronger staircase. The brackets also meet all state building codes and accommodate all rises, runs and pitches. It seems virtually mistake-proof to us…and that is why we are so fond of this product. GoPro Construction markets these stair brackets to U.S. stair manufacturers, lumber yards, home centers and construction hardware stores, but for more information, simply visit www.goproconstruction.com.
Consumer magazine and website editors, this is a means to sharing one of the most unique products with your DYI readers. The bracket system permits DYIers to easily install stairs on their own for the first time. – Trade media members, we believe that retailers, builders and contractors would find a product profile with images of great help, given their ongoing need for products that help expedite their projects and jobs.
