A Mild Steel (MS) staircase is a staircase made from mild steel, a low carbon steel that is easy to shape and form. Mild steel is a popular choice for staircases because it is strong, durable, and relatively inexpensive.
It can be cut, bent, and welded to create a variety of different designs, making it a versatile material for stair construction. MS staircases can be painted or coated to protect them from rust and corrosion, and they can also be finished with a variety of different materials, including wood, glass, and tile, to create a unique aesthetic.
They are often used in both residential and commercial building construction.

A Mild Steel (MS) stair-case detail drawing is a technical drawing that shows the specific details and dimensions of a mild steel stair-case. This type of drawing is typically created by architects, engineers, or builders and is used to communicate the design and construction of the staircase to the builders, fabricators and suppliers.
It will typically include information such as the type of steel used, the dimensions of each component, the location of each component, the method of attachment, the type of fasteners used, and any other relevant details.
The drawing may also include other relevant information such as the location of handrails, balustrades, and any other safety features. It is important that the drawings are accurate and easy to understand to avoid any construction errors.
A MS stair-case detail drawing will typically include the following information:
- Overall dimensions of the staircase, including the rise and tread of each step, the width of the staircase, and the height of the handrails
- Detailed drawings of each component of the staircase, including the stringers, treads, risers, and handrails
- The type of steel used for the staircase and the thickness of the steel
- The method of attachment for each component of the staircase, including the type of fasteners and the location of the fasteners
- Information about the type of finish used on the staircase, such as paint or powder coating, and the color of the finish
- Any additional safety features, such as non-slip treads or handrails that meet local building codes
- The location of any additional features, such as landings or platforms
- The type of fixing method to be used, like welding, bolting, etc.
- The load bearing capacity of the staircase.
It is important that the drawings are accurate and easy to understand to avoid any construction errors and also to ensure the safety of the users. And also to make sure that the staircase meets the local building codes and regulations.
