A glass stair railing is an alternative to a conventional post banister. The glass railings can help to facilitate optimal levels of light in a space and promote airiness and brightness. Significantly, these benefits come at no cost to safety – as we discuss in the following post. We will also touch on the options available at Wrightfield.

Conventional banisters, such as those made from wood or metal, typically comprise a number of horizontal and vertical solid beams. Even if these beams are slim, they can still obstruct light from passing through. This can prevent from optimum levels of brightness being achieved in a room, as well as negatively impact on the design of a space.

A glass stair railing on the other hand, is far less obtrusive and can help to optimise light levels room. The features are also compatible with a diverse range of disparate design concepts, including minimalism. The stair railings are also straightforward to fit and require only minimal upkeep and cleaning.

Despite being made from glass, the barriers are extremely secure and strong and offer exceptional levels of safety.

Design Options

At Wrightfield, we supply glass stair railings both in the UK and internationally. We offer a range of glass design options, the style of which is largely dictated by the need of a client. For instance, a railing for a high footfall commercial setting is likely to be thicker and more robust than glass that is required for a lower footfall domestic environment.

We are also able to advise a client on building regulations relating to the installation of glass stair railings.
