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).
