Is the floor to be situated internally or externally? If the floor is being used externally then there will be a soft coating required to lower the U-value in accordance to part L of the Building Regulations.

If the floor is being left clear or with a simple pattern of dots it might compromise your sense of privacy. Sandblasting will provide the privacy or a translucent resin can be used in the lower interlayer of the glass slab.

Instead of using standard glass in the upper slab this can be replaced with Low Iron glass. Low Iron glass will allow about 10% more light through the floor and will give a cleaner and whiter appearance.

Mark one of the boxes on each side to identify the type of perimeter detail that is required.

If the fire-rated material beneath the frame is not covered by the internal finishes then we suggest this is covered by a cosmetic flashing. This flashing will need to be trimmed and fixed on site after the floor has been fitted. The flashing can be in powder coated or silver anodised aluminium or in satin finish stainless steel.

The top surface of the glass can become slippery especially when wet. To resist this the glass can be consistently sandblasted or have a 10mm dot pattern fritted on the surface.
