Shaped Glass with square steel clamps

Glass remains a very popular choice for our customers. Back in 2016 we ran a series of articles about the process of producing our toughened balustrade glass to meet our high standards. We select experienced, proven glass suppliers carefully to ensure we can install excellent quality glass into our staircases. Our suppliers receive our glass drawings as a CAD file from our design team and then precision cut each panel before sending them for toughening.

The articles cover the glass cutting, toughening and bevelling processes as detailing of the standards we work to inline with the Glass & Glass Federations criteria.

Metal Spindles

Looking to make a bold, eye catching statement in your home? Metal stair spindles are the exact addition you need in order to achieve this effect. They create an air of strong elegance that everyone is looking for in their living space, as well as offering a surprisingly versatile option that can be the perfect fit when planning your dream staircase design.

Here at Abbott-Wade, we ensure that our selection of metal spindles is wide ranging, to give you the best possible choice of fine additions to your interior décor. They come in traditional styles such as the slender Buckingham & Sandringham spindles that can truly promote a life of luxury whilst giving a subtle nod to times gone by. They taper towards a classic knuckle or the grander basket design of the Windsor.

Alternatively, you may want to opt for a more contemporary design, in which the unique flowing lines of our Ripple and Wave spindles add a modern twist to this style of spindle. Spindles are so versatile in their final look that you can spend hours and hours perfecting your ideal design, ensuring only the very best is added to your property.
