Fitting your new StairFurb glass balustrades and handrails is designed to be very straightforward, making it an achievable for any capable DIY’er.

In a nutshell

this is how simple the fitting process is:

1 icon

Cut and remove existing spindles and (if being replaced) baserail and handrails.

2 icon

Cut new baserails (if being replaced) and place them in position.

3 icon

Drill pilot holes in the baserail and then fix bottom clamps with the screws supplied. The positions of the clamps for each section are clearly shown on the production sheets which are provided with your delivery.

4 yellow icon

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.

5 icon

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.

6 icon

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.

We advise that any newel posts are fitted by a skilled professional, as they are integral to the stability of the balustrade system. If you are confident in your ability to safely fit the newel posts and choose to fit them yourself, this video explains how to do so.
