Black Zig Zag and Oak Glass Staircase
Project: Fowlers Lane
Mr and Mrs Taylor had always wanted to see the side profile of a staircase in their home. So during the renovation of their home, they chose to replace the staircase with a feature zig zag style staircase that we call “Brace”. Steel components available in any colour can offer a contrast to the chosen wooden treads, Braces offers an ultra-contemporary finish with a variety of balustrades available. The Taylor family chose to go for completely frameless glass balustrades, complimenting the open plan staircase to allow light to always be at a premium in their entrance hallway.
Our steel staircase range offer the opportunity to float certain elements such as half landings (the rectangle turn at the centre of the staircase), normal staircases would require structural posts. But for complex flights like this we can advise of inner wall steel positions to allow our designs appear to float, creating a charming space underneath the staircase that can be dressed with furniture or vegetation.
The sleek lines of the steelwork allow the staircase to look very lightweight without the need of large chunky wooden elements. Our design team work hard to ensure we keep every detail structurally sound yet aesthetically beautiful. With the steel fixings this also allowed us to use the glass balustrades as part of the staircase structure. The glass adaptors let the panels to become structural reducing any bounce in the staircase. Glass with no handrail is available, or why not add a continuous handrail for safety and comfort.
The oak and glass finish of this Brace staircase is one of our most popular styles in contemporary homes nationwide. Get in touch today for your free design and quotation within 48 hours of initial inquiry.
