Walk on glass is an excellent method of introducing natural light to dark areas or subterranean rooms within your property whilst maintaining the usable and costly floor space you currently have or are planning on building.
With external walk on glass we are able to supply a number of different finishes to prevent slipping due to water build up on the surface. This ranges from sandblasting of the glass through to a ceramic anti slip frit enamel, painted and baked into the top surface of the glass.
All glass floors are designed to be subjected to a specific uniformly distributed load and concentrated point load as specified for the use of the building they are being fitted within. As such the glass specification can change greatly but, as a minimum, all walk on glass is supplied in a toughened/laminated glass make up consisting of three layers of 10mm clear toughened safety glass and two intermediate 1.5mm PVB interlayers.
Most walk on glass elements are designed to fit flush with the surrounding floor finishes thus providing a seamless transition from one finish to the other, the Glazing Innovations team can work with your construction team to create the required upstand and aperture detail to produce both a guaranteed water proof rooflight installation and the required flush perimeter finish.
