Interior Glass Floors

A glass floor is a stunning, dramatic addition to any interior space. Not only does our glass flooring offer aesthetic appeal, but it also allows for light to flow into the space below. The unique benefits of glass flooring continue with its superior, rigorously tested framing system and its exceptional engineering support and design flexibility. With beauty and simplicity that can’t be matched, Glass Flooring Systems’ interior system is the perfect solution for any glass-flooring project. Our triple-laminated glass assembly is engineered for passive redundancy with panels that are fabricated using three layers of low-iron, tempered glass with structural inter layers. Our structural glass delivers exceptional safety and design flexibility, with the top layer consisting of a safe, non-slip surface that allows light to filter into the space below. This layer can also serve as a form of artistic expression, with dozens of patterns, textures, and finishes that meet all safety standards. The role of the inter layers is to bond the layers of glass together to assure the safety and structural integrity of every glass flooring system we produce.

Our exclusive, fully independent, self-supported structural aluminum framing delivers exceptional structural integrity and design flexibility. The strength of this framing system means our glass floors can be made in much longer spans and used in more dramatic, expansive applications without the need for additional structural elements. When you work with Glass Flooring Systems, you’re working with the industry’s top glass flooring systems manufacturer, where we design, engineer, and fabricate the most innovative structural glass components and systems available. Every structural-glass product and system we offer requires some sort of engineering to ensure it functions optimally and safely. Engineering is essential to everything we do, and a large measure of the value we deliver to you lies in our engineering prowess. To that end, we offer a depth and breadth of engineering services:

  • re-engineered systems based on various live load requirements.
  • PDF, AutoCAD, and BIM format drawings
  • Sealed/stamped state-specific shop drawings.
  • Glass-specific engineering reports
  • Glass and frame engineering reports
  • Framing/system load charts
