Ledborough - Straight Glass Staircase, Glass Treads, Glass Balustrade

Elite Metalcraft Co Ltd as Sub-Contractor

When Elite Metalcraft was chosen to design and build this masterpiece glass staircase it was a challenge we were delighted to accept. It has the floating staircase experience that makes it a fascinating creation. It was totally unique in design because the cantilevered treads and the glass balustrade are connected using only one fixing per tread. The treads are constructed using a special high duty laminating process that can withstand the loads imposed, and enable the whole structure to have a transparent appearance. During construction we had to be extremely precise with the support steelwork hidden in the walls, in order to accommodate the tight tolerances required for cutting through the marble slabs
