glass staircases for universities

Modern universities in the UK are continuously competing against each other to attract the very best students. A method of attracting such students is to continuously invest in campus facilities.

Students want to be educated in the best available facilities and with so many higher education institutions to choose from, it is imperative that the internal and external features of the university reflect the positive learning environment that students are looking for.


Taking the time to invest in the appearance of a University demonstrates a commitment to want to provide the very best working environment possible for both employees and students alike.

Maintaining the balance between traditional and modern architecture can sometimes be tricky but installing a glass staircase accompanied with a stainless steel balustrade system will ultimately provide a university with a stylish and contemporary result that is functional and easy to maintain.

As with any aspect of educational specifications, glass staircases and glass balustrade systems must be custom-designed to meet the individual needs of the environment. Early engagement with a specialist as part of the design and manufacture team will ensure that the end result maximises safety, infection control, durability and aesthetics, all within budgetary constraints.

Product Sectors

Glass Balustrade for Universities

In the UK, schools, colleges and universities come in all shapes and sizes, but regardless of size, students, staff and visitors, all require safe access and movement around the campus buildings.

Steel Handrails for Universities

If your University spans across multiple sites or floors, with more than one staircase, it is compulsory to have a steel handrail on both sides of the staircase, to protect people from falling from great heights as set out in the Approved Documents K&M.

Mezzanine Floors

A mezzanine floor removes the need to move to bigger premises and uses up potentially wasted space in the height of the building.
