Our circular hinged glass floor design is made to order and manufactured between 900 and 1200mm diameter and features a partial opening hatch for access to either a circular display area, or used in this example as a spiral staircase wine cellar hatch*. All of our wine cellar floor systems come with structrual walk-on glass panel fully sealed within a hinged gas-strut opening framework. The gas struts allow for easy opening, and assisted safe slow closing.
*Although this particular customer (in main photo) used in conjunction with a spiral staircase for infrequent access you must be mindful that the area will be tight for space and headroom, and not function as a seamless spiral stair interaction- the reduced room, limited access and exclusion of handrails above floor level would all render such to be non-compliant with building regulations and should be used in this manner only at your own risk
These hinged circular glass floor systems are made to order, to suit your opening sizes. Please select the size range that suits your floor opening diameter and once ordered, we shall be in touch to produce a bespoke drawing of the exact size required. The frame will lip over your floor opening size by 50mm on all sides and be self-supporting with installation tolerance built into the design. All the hinged floor frames and glass that are made to order usually take circa 8 weeks to complete.
Once ordered a drawing will be provided based on your sizes to fully check prior to manufacture.

- 25.5mm toughened and laminated structural glass panel
