Custom made clear glass panels are held by stylish brushed steel clamps and can be accompanied by either contemporary stainless steel handrails, or American oak, giving an effortlessly chic style to your home. The clamped glass system is our most versatile and popular system.
The system is bespoke and yet modular in design ensuring that, as well as looking great, your balustrade can be dismantled easily enough with only a screwdriver and allen key. This makes life a lot easier when you want to carry large items up/down the stairs. If budget is of concern, this style system can be installed while keeping your existing baserail and handrails, making it a very affordable option.
StairFurb supply the clamped balustrade kits with the baserails pre-cut to the exact length and angle, with holes pre-drilled for the glass clamps to be fixed into. The glass is all bespoke made to your required dimensions and the handrail is pre-cut the the length required and has all clamps pre-fitted. In short, the kit is provided ready to DIY install.
In a nutshell, the fitting process for clamped glass systems…
Cut and remove existing spindles and (if being replaced) baserail and handrails.
Place the pre-cut baserail (with holes pre-drilled) into position and fix bottom clamps with the screws supplied.
Hold handrail brakets in the correct position and mark the screw holes with a pencil, then drill pilot holes. The handrail bracket heights are clearly shown on the production sheets which are provided with your delivery.
Fix the handrail brackets to the ends of the handrail and by tightening the grub screw and fix the handrails to the newel posts using the screws provided.
Starting at the bottom of the stairs and working your way up, place the bespoke glass panels into position (using the spacer block provided to set the correct gap either side of the glass) in the clamps and tighten the clamps with an 8mm Allen Key.
