Walk-On Glass FAQs
There are many architectural uses for walk-on glass, both internally and externally. From roof lights to well covers, walkways to stair treads, walk-on glass panels are both practical and fashionable. Strong glass floors allow people to get from A to B safely, whilst improving light flow and aesthetics.
Whether you want a modern design with more natural light or to make use of a design feature above or below, walk-on glass can provide excellent views and a brighter ambience. Of course, for privacy reasons, it’s best not to install transparent floors in very busy areas with lots of foot traffic.
That said, glass floors make a striking statement when installed in the right place. Stargazing through the roof, displaying an aquarium or life-size terrarium on the floor below, or simply minimising barriers between spaces – there are so many potential uses for walk-on glass floors or skylights.
Since standard glass is known to be fragile and breakable, it’s understandable that you might worry about walk-on glass being able to hold people’s weight. However, this glass is specifically designed to walk on, toughened with strong layers to withstand appropriate weight distribution and impacts.
Our toughened laminated walk-on glass complies with British Standards and European Standards for strength and impact testing, including BS EN 12150, BS EN 14179, BS 6206, BS EN 12600, quality-managed in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 and the manufacture and processing of bespoke safety glass ISO 14001:2015.
The minimum measurements and loadings for a walk-on glass panel depend on the building type, usage, and position – if you have any concerns about Building Regulations, please contact your Local Authority Building Control office for guidance.
The biggest practical benefit of walk-on glass floors and rooflights is that they allow much greater amounts of natural light to enter the building. Multi-floor properties can utilise walk-on glass to maximise light levels throughout, saying goodbye to dingy interiors that are starved for sunlight.
Another advantage is that walk-on glass panels are completely customisable, from size and shape to finish and colour. There’s no need for concerns about modesty if the glass is frosted, tinted, painted, obscure, or patterned. You can even print a logo or slogan on walk-on glass for business premises.
With such creative leeway, the possibilities are endless. There are so many ways to incorporate walk-on glass as an impressive structural feature and showcase the design, from metal framing beams to recessed LED lights. Bespoke glass panels are sure to add a unique ‘wow’ factor.
