The key to making something look effortless is ensuring there is hard work happening behind the scenes — as in the case of a floating glass staircase recently installed with specialist glass supplied by TuffX.
The finished floating glass staircase with cantilevered floor treads looks stunning in its simplicity, like an optical illusion appearing to almost float in mid-air. But the toughened safety glass required to complete the job needed a special professional touch – a CNC finish, with completely smooth polished edges and dubbed corners, plus precision drilled holes along the bottom.
Which is why leading glass specialists TuffX were chosen to provide the 12mm safety glass for the three staircase panels and five landing panels of varying width and height needed for the project.
The staircase’s combination of striking, minimalist glass, warm wood treads and contrasting sleek stainless steel handrails and fittings, create an elegant feature that would be a talking point in any home. Meanwhile, the open risers combined with the glass transforms what could have been a gloomy hallway into a bright, light and airy modern space. “Our experience as a leading safety glass manufacturer for over 25 years means whatever your project needs, you can be sure that from your first call with us to delivery direct to site, we’ll make the whole buying process as simple and effortless as the stunning result looks,” said TuffX’s Managing Director Graham Price.
