Glass has gone from strength to strength in the staircase industry and it is easy to see why. Being simultaneously simplistic and modern, beautiful yet restrained. If you are looking for something modern but believe that chrome is too garish then this is what we would point you towards. Here you can see that the design is making use of embedded glass, this means that the glass is sitting in a groove in both the handrail and baserail. This gives the impression from some way away that there isn’t a balustrade at all, rather just a floating handrail. An alternative to this option is that the glass instead sits within chrome or brushed glass clamps which in term sit on the handrail and baserail.
