The FloorGlaze range is comprised of a load bearing construction of multi-layered panes of toughened and heat-soaked safety glass, resin-laminated together to carry pedestrian and concentrated loads. The laminate used is DuPont’s Sentryglas plus, which is five times stronger and up to 100 times stiffer than conventional laminating materials.

For the double glazed floors (F60, F30 and DG) the top panel is combined with an under pane of laminated glass, which includes a high performance coating to achieve a U value of 1.1 W/m2/K.

This complex build-up of glass panels will provide the silence of an acoustic performance of 50 Db (Rw) along with the elimination of the transmission of UV rays. Peace from the noise and peace of mind in the knowledge that solar bleaching has been controlled.

Every FloorGlaze glass floor comes with a painted band, in a choice of colours, around the perimeter. This band is baked onto the under surface of the glass to clean up the view of the panel edge.

For a crisp, 'whiter' appearance these floors can be supplied with Low Iron glass to allow an amazing 80% light transmittance and give true transparency from one level to the other.

If you have an issue with privacy or slipperiness then the glass can be sandblasted, either fully or as a pattern.

Enter the number of floors that have exactly the same dimensions, specifications and perimeter configurations.

Enter the exact width in mm for the upper glass slab.

Enter the exact length (or span) in mm for the upper glass slab.

Choose the specification of the fire-rated performance. EI30 for 30 minutes insulation and integrity, EI60 for 60 minute insulation and integrity or choose a NON fire-rated specification.

Enter in KN the Design level of the Concentrated Load (CL) that needs to be allowed for in the calculations, to 1 decimal place.
For example the standard Domestic Concentrated load is 2.0 KN.

Enter in KN/m2 the Design level of the Uniformly Distributed Load (UDL) that needs to be allowed for in the calculations, to 1 decimal place.
For example the standard Uniformly Distributed load is 1.5 KN/m2.

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.
