There's also Granite Expo, in Oakland.  They have two locations, only one
of which sells steel, but both locations are within a couple miles of each
other.  I've bought a bunch of 20x1" square tubing from them over the
years.

...but, I'm really scared of the idea of putting a cage around the elevator
lobby on the 3rd floor.  The elevator is very flakey, and if you come up,
can't get through the cage, and then can't use the elevator to get back
down, you're really fucked.  That's basically the definition of a fire
trap. :-/

If you can somehow provide access from the elevator lobby to the stairwell,
that would be completely different.
