Stair Glass Balustrades

Tech Specs  |  Installation  |  Gallery  |  Projects

For balustrading going up the side of a staircase, Balcony can offer a glass balustrade with a handrail on top. Balcony Systems’ handrails are made of anodised aluminium and the most popular finish looks like stainless steel (but unlike so-called stainless steel, it is maintenance-free because it truly doesn’t stain).

Balcony can customise the angle of the glass to go with many configurations of stairs. Glass balustrades to accompany steps and stairs are very well-suited to external use. Balcony adapts systems that were originally designed for balconies, to angle down exterior staircases, whether or not the steps lead off a balcony.

Balcony can provide glass balustrades for staircases interior and exterior to a certain extent*. Have a look at our video here explaining the best use of the system on stairs.


For more information on Balcony’s stair systems or to speak to one of our friendly sales consultants please call 01342 410411

*Balcony Systems does not supply or manufacture full staircases and stair runs, by this is meant a complete staircase, Balcony’s system cannot “crank” the handrails around corners nor is the system suitable for changing heights or angles that are not 90’. Balcony Systems do not supply or manufacture helical stair runs which are spiral stairs or curved stairs. Balcony is able to supply the system for some stair runs, this under certain parameters that the system can work with.

Glass Balustrade Sysytems on Stairs

Balcony Systems Solutions Ltd introduces a new 72mm X 72mm Newel Post that now allows the Balcony System to be used on stair runs easily. 

The principle of the system remains the same using the combined strength of the precision engineered handrail profiles and the strength of the glass. 72X72mm Newel posts are installed at the top and bottom of the stair runs. If the run is more than 2.7m then additional posts need to be installed in the middle of the run.

Glass Stair Railing

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.

We highly recommend our economical factory-applied double side glass coating which minimizes cleaning for up to two years and then can be stripped off and re-applied by hand.
