|Glass stairs Glass in New York|
Staircase and glass did not go hand in hand in the past. Because it is a connecting element between levels, stairs have always worried us about their stability and resistance, and walking on glass does not sound very safe to say. Right? However, glass stairs have become very fashionable and engineers and architects have managed to design safe and transparent steps. In Giovani Glass we have experts in the manufacture of glass elements and stairs is no exception.
Here we present part of our work so you can learn more about glass stairs:
Translucent staircase with glass railing
This is our first proposal we apply two ways to include glass on the stairs; as raw material for the steps and as closing of the staircase. A high glass railing can mean fewer risks when going up or down, while offering a sense of space.
Metal structure with glass steps
If the floating stairs make you feel a little vertigo or certain insecurity, then this option is for you. The structure and metal rails that hold less thick and semi transparent glass steps can be a more economical option that works as a support at each step to avoid accidents.
Floating glass steps with steel handrails
This option is perfect for stairs located in small spaces. The completely transparent glass steps allow you to see the lower space that you can take advantage of to decorate with plants or floor decorations.
