Why choose a glass balustrade for your staircase?

Glass balustrades are the perfect way to open up your home. Invoking a sense of seamlessness, they create the illusion of extra space and allow more natural light to pass through.

The glass balustrades we install come with a variety of benefits, including:

  • Premium toughened glass
  • Simple yet elegant designs
  • Easy cleaning
  • Quick installation

What types of glass balustrades do we offer?

Our glass balustrades come in two main types, both of which feature polished and dubbed edges.

Non-Structural Framed Toughened Glass (10mm)

This type of glass sits between a string, landing capping, and handrail. The handrail is joined to newel posts at each end by a mortise and tenon joint, and therefore does not need to be structural.

The glass is toughened and can either be held into place with brackets or rebated into the handrail and capping.

Structural Side-Fixed Toughened Glass (15mm or 19mm)

This type of glass is unbraced, and is instead held in place by the newel posts and handrail. Bolts are fixed into the stair string and trimmers at landing level; these can be left on show or hidden behind a dummy or false string.

To abide by British Standards, this glass must be able to withstand more stringent side impact loads. This is why it is thicker than non-structural glass.
