StairFurb staircase kits are the perfect solution to transform your staircase and allow light to flow into your stairwell. Traditional staircases have spindles or boards which block light and cast a shadow on the staircase. The majority of staircases in peoples homes are the same ones that the builders installed when developing the home. More often than not, these staircases are designed to just be a place holder. They’re designed to only be functional, not to be stylish or elegant. StairFurb’s staircase kit is elegant, stylish and very easy to install.
The Staircase section is any angled section which runs up a staircase. These sections must have a suitable newel post at the top and bottom of the stairs and these posts should be aligned such that the stringer runs between the centre of the newel posts (the post should not be fitted to the side of the stringer). There should also be a stringer or base rail running the length of the stairs, in the centre of the two newel posts. Our systems are NOT suitable for open tread staircases, as our glass clamps fit the bottom of the glass and the clamps are screwed into the stringer.
When possible we will set the handrail height for your staircase section such that the top of the handrail height is over 900mm from the trendline. The height we are able to set the handrail for your balustrade may be limited by the newel post height. If your newel post height is too short to allow us to set a 900mm handrail height, we will set the handrail to the highest height possible. If you require your handrail to be set above a specific height, please be sure to let a member of the team know by email as soon as you have placed your order.
Please note – If your handrail runs from a newel post at the bottom of the stairs, up to a ceiling (rather than a newel post) you are likely to have what we call an “odd shape staircase”. We are able to supply for this style of staircase but you will need to go to the relevant product page.
Made to measure glass panels, which will all be identical in size and allow for 25mm horizontal gaps either side of each panel.
Brushed stainless steel or American oak handrail (if selected), which is cut to size and has all glass clamps pre-fitted to the correct location and the rail cut to the exact length required.
All additional clamps, fixtures, and fittings are included as standard.
A spacer block to make it easy to set the correct space between each glass panel, and a production sheet which shows you exactly where to put your glass clamps.
