Once regarded as an expensive luxury, glass floors now play both decorative and structural roles in many of the country’s grandest construction projects. They provide a fantastic way of enabling more natural light to flow through a building and OAG has been involved in a range or projects where glass floors have been used to stunning effect. We’ve installed glass stair treads and used glass in structural floor slab separation.
Today, glass floors can include lighting and colour elements and are manufactured to meet fire resistance standards. They can be built with thermal performance in mind – such as for pavements and roof terraces.
OAG has experience with all the compliance and safety standards to be met when a glass floor is built – in particular BS 6399 (BS/EN 1990) – and we can also advise on privacy, anti-slip surfacing, and cleaning and maintenance issues.
Pricing is still a key issue where glass floors are deployed, but OAG has a pedigree when it comes to glass floor design and can advise on a cost plan to suit your project.
