Glass Stair Railing Defined

A glass stair railing can be defined as a run of glass with a handrail on top, alongside a flight of indoor or outdoor stairs. It is a fairly modern invention made possible by glass toughening techniques. It is a glass balustrade for stairs and we have been specializing in glazed balustrading at Balcony Systems for many years.

What are Balcony Systems’ Option in Glass Stair Railings?

When using the word railing, one is often referring to balustrades for stairs, so this is where we’ll start.

Glass Railings for Stairs

For balustrading going up the side of a staircase, we offer a glass balustrade with a handrail on top. Our handrails are made of anodised aluminium and our most popular finish looks like stainless steel (but unlike so-called stainless steel, it is maintenance-free because it truly doesn’t stain). Here is a link to the different finishes available for the handrails of our glass railings for stairs. We provide glass balustrading for interior and exterior staircases.

What Else Do You Do? 

As this is where we are the best known, here we can provide the biggest options.

We supply a completely frameless glass balustrade, a semi-frameless glass balustrade and a traditionally rounded handrailing system  as well as our more modern hydrofoil handrailing system.

In addition, we supply our balustrading handrails in white, silver, bronze or our proprietary Royal Chrome (which is designed to look like stainless steel but requires no maintenance to continue looking good. We can also provide bespoke colours.

The glass itself comes in a choice of the following tints:

  • Clear
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Grey bronze.

We highly recommend our economical factory-applied double side glass coating which greatly minimizes cleaning for up to two years.

In addition, we provide bespoke curved balustrades that are carefully made and then the anodized aluminum handrailing, is made to fit the curved glass so that it is as close to perfectly fitting together as possible.
