Our Glass Railings Systems
We offer three main types of glass railing systems to choose from for a modern and contemporary look.
This glass railing system uses standoffs (round stainless steel cylinders) to secure the glass in place. The holes are pre-drilled, then the glass is leveled and the standoffs are secured to the glass panels.
In this system, the glass panels are secured by clips mounted to the posts or on the shoe railing. You can also choose either wood or steel posts that will compliment your overall interior design.
This railing system is where the glass panels are secured within the top railing and bottom shoe. The glass panels exist within a wooden framework. The Dadoed glass railing style is visually the cleanest looking style because there are no clips or hardware to be seen.
Additionally, we offer handrails in three different finishes: stained wood, stainless steel and black metal to compliment these systems.
Glass Railings Installation Process
Initial Consultation and Preparation
First we set up a preliminary call to discuss what you need for the glass railings installation and we discuss our process. After you send us photos of your current staircase, we will schedule an on-site consultation to determine the exact scope of work for the glass railings installation.
Removal of Existing Railings
After we decide on the scope of work and you agree on the quote, we can proceed with the installation. The first step is to remove the existing railings and we will address any holes or patches required.
Refinishing the Staircase
Afterwards, we will sand down your existing staircase to remove any scratches, damages and to strip it of the existing colour so a new stain can be applied to compliment your home’s interior.
Template Measurements and Design
We’ll then take precise measurements to order the exact measurements for the glass railings. This way you can be confident that the customized glass railings will be made to perfectly fit your staircase.
Glass Production and Customization
Once the measurements are done, we proceed to produce the glass railings. It usually takes about two weeks to produce the glass panels.
Installation for Existing Stairs
Once the custom glass railings are produced, we will schedule the installation date and then install the glass railings based on the style you’ve chosen. Our team will ensure that your new railings are installed properly and safely so you don’t need to worry.
After we finish the installation, our team will happily present your newly installed glass railings, leaving you with a beautifully transformed space.
