Enhancing your home's style and function

Balustrades are a critical element of any staircase, providing a protective barrier to prevent falls while enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the stairwell and your home.

When it comes to balustrade styles, there are numerous options to choose from, with the three primary materials being steel, timber, and glass.

Please note: We supply and install balustrades exclusively for projects where we also supply and install the stairs.

Glass Balustrades

Glass balustrades offer a perfect blend of function and form. Made from toughened, industry-grade glass, they provide robust protection while maintaining an elegant, minimalist look. Favoured by architects and interior designers, glass balustrades seamlessly integrate with contemporary interiors, instantly modernising any space.

When installed on a meticulously crafted staircase by Ackworth House, our glass balustrades deliver both beauty and performance for years to come. They create the illusion of a larger space, allow natural light to flow freely, and are easy to maintain.

We supply and install balustrades only for projects where we also supply and install the stairs.
