we are able to supply a wide range of glass stairs and staircase parts including glass treads, risers, side panels and landing balustrades -
all made to measure. We can combine glass with wood or metal in all sorts of different sizes and configurations, so have a look through our Case Studies section for some inspiration.

What are the benefits of a glass staircase?

Installing glass staircase parts can benefit your space in many ways.
From opening up small hallways and allowing more light to flow through, to adding the ultimate modern vibe to your space, you can’t go wrong with glass staircase parts.
Another huge advantage of glass staircase parts is how versatile they are.
It’s a common misconception that glass balustrades are more limited (in terms of design) than their wooden counterparts, which can be carved, stained and painted in lots of different ways. But there are plenty of stunning ways you can style glass staircase parts.
You don’t have to be restricted to clear, plain-as-day glass – you could opt for tinted glass to add a touch of colour, or frosted glass to maximise light flow without the need for completely transparent panels.

Are glass staircases safe?

So long as they’re professionally manufactured, installed and fully legislation-compliant, glass staircases are incredibly safe.
Glass staircase parts are made from toughened, laminated glass – the same kind used for car windscreens and shop windows – which is much stronger than everyday glass. And, for extra peace of mind, every glass panel used in glass staircase designs are marked with something called a ‘kitemark’ – a symbol of quality used to identify glazing solutions that are at the pinnacle of safety.

We’re more than happy to help!

How much will I pay for glass staircase parts?

When giving their staircases a makeover, the cost is the main concern for many homeowners.
Lots of people think that glass staircase components are much more expensive than wooden or metal alternatives, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.
The price you’ll pay depends on your specific requirements, but regardless of this, you can be confident you’ll receive just what you’re looking for at a fair price when you work with us at Pear Stairs.
For a more accurate idea of pricing, you’re more than welcome to give our team a call on 01938 553 311 or reach out to us via email at

Are glass staircases hard to keep clean?

Just like the rest of the glass elements in your home – windows or mirrors perhaps – grubby fingerprints, dust and dirt are much more visible than they are on wooden or metal ones.
However, unlike these wood and metal components, glass doesn’t rot or corrode, and is super easy to clean, making it the perfect choice for your staircase.
Simply wipe away any finger marks with a dampened microfibre cloth, and use a gentle solution of warm water, a small amount of washing-up liquid and a drop of lemon juice or vinegar to remove any stubborn spots of dirt or dried stains.
Doing this once a week alongside your other household cleaning chores should keep your glass staircase components looking like new for years to come.

Glass Staircase Shropshire

Oak and Glass, Shropshire Staircase

The customer asked for a wow factor, so our designers came up with an American white oak staircase with a bullnose on a large D-end step, with glass balustrading throughout.  

For something a little different we followed through the glass on to the risers to give an 'open riser' effect and encourage light flow around the hallway. We finished off with square newel posts and pyramid newel caps, proving that less is quite definitely more.
