Grooved For Glass Base Rail
60mm Wide x 40mm High pre-grooved for 8mm or 10mm Glass Panels
Select from 1800mm, 2400mm, 3600mm or 4200mm Lengths
These rails are manufactured from either Pine or American White Oak to match our ranges of Pine and Oak Stair Parts. The rails are pre-grooved to accept either 10mm or 8mm Glass Panels.
We recommend bedding your glass panels onto a silicone inside the rail groove, this will secure your glass and stop any potential rattle of glass against timber
Fixing Base Rails and Handrail to Newel Post
Base Rails are fixed centrally to the top of the stair string (Side of the stairs) by drilling pilot holes through the groove and screwing into the string. The screws will need to be counter sunk into the rail, All screw heads will be hidden by glass panels or infill strips. Fix to the landing floor using the same method
Handrails can be fitted to any design of newel post with a flat face by either a traditional Mortice and Tenon joint or by using our handrail to newel post fixing kits. Zip Fixings are not suitable for fixing these handrails
