This new oak staircase forms the centrepiece of this home and uses glass down stands to comply with UK building regulations while maintaining the open feeling of the stairs allowing air and light to flow freely between the treads. The embedded glass balustrade comprises 10mm toughened safety glass and an inviting oak feature step.

Abbott-Wade offer a range of glass staircases with embedded or clamped 10mm clear glass being a popular choice. For a super-modern minimalist style we also offer Frameless Glass options on new staircases such as this one. Our 15mm glass can be paired with oak or with a stained or painted finish on the stairs. Tour this recent installation over three storeys to see for yourself how the unobscured glass opens up the entire stairway and consider how a similar installation could transform your own home.
“After reading about the Abbott-Wade family business I was happy to use them.”
Abbott-Wade offer a wide range of traditional and contemporary spindles with styles to suit every home. This installation uses our Full-Twist Spindles which are manufactured using cutting edge CNC technology. Full Twist spindles have a contemporary design with a hint of traditionally turned spindles in their silhouette. This culminates to create a subtlety modern feel with contemporary lines but the warmth and elegance of traditional design.
“We are highly delighted with our staircase and without a second thought would recommend Abbott-Wade. They have totally transformed our hallway. We hadn’t seen an oak and glass staircase ‘in real life’ only in pictures. The reality is so much better than we could have imagined, we absolutely love it and the glass is really so very easy to clean and maintain. A job well done – Thank you!”
One of the popular trends we have have seen over recent years is customers moving away from traditionally turned spindles in favour of glass. This is largely due to a desire to create a bright contemporary space within the heart of the home but there are practical implications to be considered too.
