An embedded glass staircase i created by creating a grove in the base-rail, where the glass can then sit into, a matching grove is created in the handrail. This will the sandwich the glass, fixing it in place safely.

The glass used is 10mm toughened glass, which ensures that should any damage befall the glass, no large shards or sharp edges will result and the glass can be safely disposed of.

Clamped Glass Balustrade

A clamped glass balustrade is for a more modern home, looking to create a less simplistic look, whereby the transition between the glass and the timber is broken up by the metal of the clamp. This metal element is one that complements the staircase, giving it a greater array of colours and materials for a style which is more eye catching than easy on the eye.

The glass clamps come in either a polished stainless steel, or a chrome effect, depending on your preference. The glass is secured in place with an allen key, which can also be removed should the need arise to take the glass out.
