Floating tread type staircase with glass balustrade with timber handrail, steel plate cantilever treads with timber covering. Residential property - The client required a high specification floating tread type staircase to seamlessly blend in with his high quality internal finish. The floating treads were achieved by cantilevering steel plates from a steel section hidden within the wall. Glass balustrade was fixed to the treads using high quality stainless steel fittings. The balustrades and treads were then clad in timber to hide any steel components.
