Glass Balustrade Clamps

Glass balustrades continue to be a popular staircase choice for many of our customers. Where glass is not embedded into the rails, it is secured into place with metal clamps. These clamps (or brackets) come in several standard designs (see below) though others may be available upon request. Abbott-Wade’s standard brackets include stainless steel in a polished chrome effect or brushed steel which are popular for many modern homes. A brass option is also available. Our clamps also come in two popular styles; a rounded D-shape and a square edged bracket specifically designed for the 10mm toughened glass we use as standard.

Staircase Stories: Mr & Mrs Hughes, Amersham

Extension work to the Hughes family home in Amersham created the perfect opportunity to begin planning for a stunning entrance hall. An oak staircase  comprising Abbott-Wade’s Cube handrail with white stringers and risers was decided upon. Soft carpeted treads and a stunning feature step were the icing on an already delicious cake!


“The Abbott-Wade staff were so helpful throughout the whole process. All the staff were very friendly and helpful at every stage. They even noticed a tiny fault on one piece of the glass and had a replacement on order before we even knew there was problem. I would certainly highly recommend the company and their product to anyone who asked me.”
