White Oak Open Rise with Glass

These clients requested a bright and airy feel for their staircase using white oak and glass balustrade so we designed this stairs with their specific requirement and staircase location in mind.  This open rise design allows the light to flow while using a stub riser it complies with safety regulations.

They opted for a simple square chamfered newel post with a flat cap and 10mm toughened glass for the balustrade on both the stairs and landing area. They chose the "window pane" finish (where the glass is fitted into grooves in the string and handrail) instead of a glass clamp system as the didnt want any exposed metal in the staircase finish.
