To install a glass staircase panel you should first remove the existing timber or metal balustrading and handrails. This allows you to dispose of the material that you no longer want and dispose of it in a safe and efficient way, then we can start getting to work on installing your ideal glass staircase! We use 10mm toughened Pilkington glass for your glass balustrade – you can rest assured your staircase is safe and strong with this kind of glass. It will provide a solid base that also looks the part, so you needn’t worry about its maintenance apart from cleaning it every so often. Through consultation with our experienced design team, you can create a design unique to your home. After we have finalised the plans, we install your glass staircase in just one day, leaving your home exactly as it was prior to our work, apart from the addition of a new, stunning staircase. Sounds good, right?
A glass staircase renovation is cheaper than a full staircase replacement, as you will be keeping the existing structure of your staircase whilst adding some fine glass elements to make it an attractive glass staircase that will become a staple in your home for many years to come. Here at Abbott-Wade, we specialise in staircase refurbishments that work with your existing flight of stairs and we only remove the full flight if it is not structurally safe. Due to the bespoke nature of each of the jobs we perform, we prefer to talk directly with our customers to obtain a full picture of their requirements before giving a price. The last thing we want to do is give you an off-putting quote based on loose specifications when the price may actually be much cheaper, depending on what you intend to do with your glass staircase. To discuss a quote, you can get in touch with our knowledgeable, helpful team who will also be able to arrange your free, no-obligation home survey with a member of our design team.
There are many benefits to glass staircase designs, we’re sure that when you know about a few you may be swayed into installing a glass staircase in your own home!

It can also add the illusion that your space looks bigger than it actually is, and who wouldn’t want that? Glass can add a spacious element that we all crave in our homes, instead of making it look cramped, claustrophobic and plainly unpleasant on the eyes! Other advantages include being able to add a modern touch to an otherwise more traditional looking type of property. Each glass staircase design we create alongside our customers is done in keeping with the overall style of the home. If you’d like to find out more about the advantages of installing glass staircases, be sure to get in touch with our team of experts and we will gladly discuss them with you
A glass staircase is a wonderful aspect of a building, but for many, the presence of a handrail matters. If your staircase has a glass balustrade, then by UK building requirements, in most cases you don't need a handrail to support this. However, we recommend taking into consideration the overall structure and surrounding area before making the judgment for yourself. For any kind of staircase, safety should always be paramount. If you are unsure whether you need a handrail with your glass balustrade or not, get in touch with the team at Abbott-Wade today and we will gladly discuss your enquiries with you.
