Supplying the Balustrading for a Historic Home

Friday 28th February, 2020

Peterlee Glass recently had the pleasure of working alongside Home Glass Solutions - an established, family run business based in Harrogate, covering the whole of North Yorkshire.

Home Glass Solutions had been contracted to work on a very interesting project – specifically, to make the stairs of a period property safe and fit for use. Set against the quaint landscape of rural Grassington, this property posed a challenge due to its historic origins. The planners were very strict in stating that there could be no framework to spoil the building’s original steps, which date back approximately 400 years.


After contacting various industry professionals, many companies had expressed scepticism regarding whether this was possible due to the irregular and unwieldy structure of the brickwork.

However, after through consideration of the building’s architecture, Home Glass Solutions were able to overcome this and devise a way to make the steps secure with a glass solution in the form of balustrading and clamps. Peterlee Glass were pleased to be the supplier of the frameless, glass balustrading, which was fixed to the steps with minimal disruption to the original features and overall look of the property.


We are grateful to Home Glass Solutions for presenting us with the opportunity to work on this unusual project, and we are just as delighted with the end result as both the client and Home Glass Solutions are.

In addition to fulfilling the client’s and planner’s main priority of making the steps safe for use without spoiling the original architecture, the glass addition also looks aesthetically pleasing. The clean lines and translucent properties of the glass balustrading contrast nicely with the surrounding traditional brickwork, whilst adding a complementary element of modernity that doesn’t clash or draw attention away from the properties stunning period features.
