Create Light and Space Using Glass Balustrades

Luxury Timber Staircase with Glass Balustrades

The use of glass balustrades to create a sense of light and space in cutting edge design-led new-builds, conversions and refurbishments is increasing. Cantilever stairs are also becoming popular and are being specified by architects and interior designers to deliver the appearance of floating in the space.

Ultra-modern interior design using glass and wood in combination looks great but it presents a challenge to joiners who are required to create and install glass balustrades and panels in conjunction with many stair projects. How do you fix the timber components to the glass balustrades or stairs neatly and securely without detracting from the spatial effect of the design?

Toolfix has the answer with its range of specialist hardware designed for fixing glass and wood. An extensive range of stainless steel glass adaptors, stand-off glass adaptors, floor mounted glass balustrade clamps, glass clamps and Juliette balcony adaptors give joiners plenty of options for bespoke stair and landing installations. Toolfix is able to provide high quality, cost-effective hardware solutions at very short lead times.

Hardware can be directly fixed on posts or newels to mount glass panels. Alternatively, glass can be set into channels, with railings mounted directly onto the glass with panels fixed together using flat clamps with rubber gaskets.
Clamps come in a range of profiles with smooth, tabular or flat mounting for joining two pieces of glass together or joining glass to wood.

Anthony Burt of Toolfix said: “Customers choose glass balustrades for a variety of reasons. Perhaps it’s because they want an uninterrupted view of their interior space. Minimalist design is now fashionable and the combination of glass and timber stairs, especially cantilever stairs, delivers crisp leading-edge design. Or it may be they want the benefits of a cost effective, easy to maintain but durable installation.

“Whatever the reason, Toolfix has good value, high-quality hardware that will enable joiners to deliver cost-effective, stylish solutions that are right on trend and will delight their customers.”
