Brilliance for the Buttery
An Architectural metalwork specialist asked CT Glass to provide the glass components for this project at the Buttery that comprised of stairs and balustrading made from satin polished stainless steel with toughened glass in-fills panels and stainless steel tubular post uprights and handrails.
The glass stair panels are finished with satin polished stainless steel tubular handrails, which are side fixed from the 15mm structural glass panels. The balustrade was installed using post and infill stainless steel and glass balustrade panels made from 10mm glass on both the landing area and the staircase to the second floor.
Why CT Glass?
As specialist processors of thick glass, CT Glass supplied 37 panels made from a combination of 10mm and 15mm toughened for the balustrading panels and 19 pieces of 39mm thick laminated glass to form stair treads and landing panels. Each stair component piece was manufactured from three sheets of 12mm glass, with the addition of sandblasted strips.
The finished project leaves unobstructed views from the full length glass windows. Using glass as the main component material and what appears to be very little structural support makes this staircase appear to float. The deliberate lack of edging on the stair treads helps complete the illusion along with the first floor landing being edged with a 300mm glass border around the stair void.
