The Glass Floor Range

The FloorGlaze range has been created to provide the answers to all the questions asked about the use of glass in floors. It is suitable for virtually all environments and every commercial and domestic situation.

The FloorGlaze range includes options for non fire-rated glass that can be integrated alongside the fire-rated glass to provide continuity of design throughout the project.

The FloorGlaze range is supplied fully integrated into a single steel frame, which means fitting is simple and free from mess and complication. The glass is structurally bonded into the frame before it arrives on site and only needs to be dropped into position once delivered. All that then remains to be done is to fix the supplied insulation to the underside of the frame. This can be concealed within the finishes or by optional flashings in powder coated steel if required.

The FloorGlaze F30 has been fully tested and is certified with a fire rating of 30 minute integrity and 30 minute insulation (EI30). The F30 can be fitted independently or joined together to provide an unlimited expanse of glass floor. Each individual free-spanning element can reach up to widths of 2328mm with a maximum glazed area of 3.03m2 (see Dimensions). The junction between each panel of glass is made with a simple 8mm silicone joint on the upper surface and underneath can be covered neatly by a narrow cosmetic flashing (supplied) allowing sight-lines of as little as 55mm.

The FloorGlaze F60 has been fully tested and is certified with a fire rating of 60 minute integrity and 60 minute insulation (EI60). To achieve this incredible rating the F60 is only available when all four sides of the panel are supported, but it is still possible to buy it up to a massive 2.33 square metres with a maximum width of 2244mm (see Dimensions).

The FloorGlaze DG is not fire-rated, but has the same appearance as the fire-rated floors and can therefore be integrated in the overall scheme without conflict. As with the F30 and the F60 the inclusion of a High Performance Solar Coating means that U-values are reduced to 1.1 W/m2/K to conform to the most demanding of Parts ‘L1’ and ‘L2’ of the Building Regulations (see Details).

The FloorGlaze SG is also not a fire-rated glass floor, but has the same appearance as the other floors in the range. Due to the fact it is single glazed it is only suitable for internal use, but like the DG it can be supplied in very large sizes and considerable spans (see Dimensions).

Enter the primary contact name.

Enter the site address.

Enter the site postcode.

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.
