Location: Rochester, NY

Material and Finish: This mono-stringer glass railing staircase features powder-coated steel posts and open-riser wood treads.
Description: The mono-stringer floating staircase with glass railing is made of steel with wood treads and wood top rail. The balcony also includes our Ithaca Style railing posts.
Our client in Rochester, New York requested a modern floating glass railing staircase to accentuate their home’s high ceilings and open-concept design. Above all, the homeowner wanted the railing system to match the copper accents throughout the house. To achieve a copper look without sacrificing stability, we used powder-coated steel in a copper shade. Both the mono-stringer staircase and balcony have Ithaca Style glass railing as well as custom-made steel posts. We designed the steel posts to slice through the wide wood treads and connect to a steel plate below. As a result, the staircase has a sleek, modern look and matches perfectly with the rest of the home’s interior.
