Typically, structural glass is laminated for strength and safety. It can either be clear or frosted, depending upon the application. Structural glass comes in squares that measure as much as 4 or 5 feet wide, and can be formed into panels or glass blocks. When installed, structural glass is supported by a steel or aluminum frame.
Glass flooring is often lit from below to create a dramatic visual effect. Clear flooring panels can give people standing on it an overhead view of processes or other activities. When a clear view is undesirable, translucent panels can still distribute natural light and provide a dramatic view when lit from below.
China has recently taken structural glass to new levels – literally. Glass bottomed bridges and viewing platforms suspended hundreds of feet above the ground give tourists unique views of natural parks, city skylines and other tourist attractions. China is not the only city in which tourists can take advantage of structural glass. Glass-floored tourist attractions can be found in London, Toronto, Moscow, Tokyo, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City.
