Unique Glass Floor Project
Unique Glass Floor Project- Preserving a Train Carriage
“We supply toughened and laminated walk-on floor glass all over the UK and often don’t get to see where it is used. Our latest customer however had a totally unique project and was delighted to share photos of her floor glass within her train carriage / house renovation……..
Becki got in touch with us to discuss her project, which is like nothing we have ever seen before as her house actually encompasses and incorporates an antique train carriage which she had discovered when renovating the property.
Becki rightly wanted to make a showcase feature out of the train carriage and used our walk-on glass floor panels and neoprene gaskets to sit between the train carriage joists and form a new flooring system with LED lighting underneath to really enhance the feature area.
All our walk on floor glass is cut to size so Becki simply supplied a list of sizes for us to get manufactured, and number up for ease of installation. The glass panels are all quite small and therefore our 25.5mm toughened and laminated glass was used (we recommend this thickness for sizes upto 1metre in domestic properties).
The glass was seated on our neoprene rubber gaskets and installed by simply placing the glass into the individual recesses and silicone sealing in place. The overall effect is quite simply awesome and we love it (as does Becki!) and is nothing like what we expected when the photos came through.
The project has also gained attention from the Railway Heritage Trust who are working closely with Becki to document the renovation and preservation of this unique find.
Our glass panels and walk-on glazing units are available to purchase via our glass web-shop in various thicknesses with transparent (pun intended) pricing. You can simply enter your sizes to the millimetre for an instant online quote and proceed through our secure online terminal to complete your purchase.
As all our glass is made to order, lead times can vary but generally around 3-4 weeks for most orders of toughened and laminated glass. If what you need is not available online, please send us an enquiry for a bespoke quotation on your glass needs.
