At Glass Flooring Systems, we create glass that serves not just as a beautiful aesthetic component, but also as an actual structural element. When we create structural-glass beams and use them to construct entire footbridges and catwalks from pure glass, the glass fulfills requirements in both form and function. Its ability to support the structure and look beautiful while doing so defies the idea that these footbridges and other elevated walkways require heavy steel beams and hefty pieces of hardware girding them from above and below. Not only are our all-glass bridges entirely safe, they’re also highly functional and incomparably beautiful.
To create a structure from glass using structural-glass beams, we partner with glass-specific engineering experts who work closely with our architects and are responsible for assessing site conditions, conceptualizing designs, and defining structural specifications. We construct each beam from layers of tempered, low-iron safety glass and utilize the latest technology in SentryGlas™ interlayers. Each beam is precisely machined, drilled, edged, and polished to create a stunning architectural showpiece with incredible structural integrity.
