Product Details

Glass floors and stair treads are found in both residential and commercial settings, and are growing in popularity because of their aesthetic appeal as well as for the daylighting benefits they bring to a space. While there are manufacturers that provide engineered and tested flooring systems, most glass floor and stair tread projects require the input of a structural engineer to provide load calculations and to provide glazing details. Also, it is recommended that an experienced glazer review the support conditions and waterproofing system if it is an exterior application.
