In this project posts and glass form a stunning stair balustrade. Both top and side mount system have been used in this project, to seamlessly transition from stair to landing. We supplied all the metalwork fully fabricated and the glass right ready to install. This included all the relevant fixings and accessories needed to easily install the balustrade.
We have a range of timber fixings specifically designed to be used with our balustrades. For situations where there isn’t a depth of stringer to fix into, there are Quickcode 033 Threaded Timber Inserts. These are only 30mm deep, making these perfect for staircases such as in this project. They have been thoroughly tested, and withstand a pull out load of at least 3kn.

We recommend having at least 2 holes in the glass for the clamps in each panel. If the glass Using all the safety pins greatly reduces the installation tolerance. Safety pins are an extra precaution in case the glass slips in the clamps. The likelihood of this happening is extremely small, but should it happen, the pins will support the glass from falling. Having the extra layer of safety is important for balustrades that are protecting a drop.
According to building regulations, handrails on staircases should project slightly beyond the end of the staircase. This is set out in BS8300. For more details on the requirements set out for handrails, check out our handrail regulations guide here.
