Glass Walkway Panels
Structural Glass Walkway Panels
“Creating a glass walkway can provide a wow-factor for any home, garden or business and they are quite often used as showpieces for museums and attractions around the world. All you really need to get started is some walk-on floor glass, which can be bought online via our web shop…..”
The basics behind creating a glass walkway are the support system used and the structural floor glass specification, both of which can vary considerably.
Glass thickness for your glass floor system will depend entirely on its use (commercial, domestic or otherwise) and its span between supports. Glass floor panels can range from 25.5mm thick to around 39mm thick for most applications however thicker glass is available upto around 60mm and suitable for driving a car over.
The majority of glass walkways are designed to be supported on all four edges and never in the middle of the glass. A gasket should be used between the glass and the supporting surface, typically a 3mm thick neoprene rubber or similar.
The supporting structure can vary depending on your construction; some people will sit the glass into a timber structure, others onto beams and lintels etc. As steel fabricators, here at DioMet we manufacture a wide range of different steel support frameworks for use in glass floor walkways all of which are certified to BS EN1090-2 as required by law.
Walkway floor glass can be bought online in our glass floor shop and is all made to order, usually taking between 3-4 weeks depending on the options chosen which include non slip treatment and back painted glass borders.
