IBP GlassWalk Structural Glass Floor System
IBP offers a floor system engineered for the next generation in structural glass: 1" thick laminated units. The SG system is ideal for any application where natural light is at a premium.
The heart of a GlassWalk SG system is a modular IBP aluminum grid: strong, lightweight, easy to install and proven in hundreds of applications. Grids contain more than 25% post-consumer recycled content, which helps make them compatible with popular green-building standards.
For most SG installations, IBP supplies two- or three-ply laminated glass units with each layer of glass being fully tempered for strength and impact resistance. These composite units, combined with the performance of the aluminum grid, have been proven in tests by independent labs to meet applicable code requirements for load and impact.
The GlassWalk SG system holds individual glass units ranging in size from 12" square all the way to 48" square as well as custom sizes and shapes. Slip resistance is achieved with a traction control ceramic-based frit, permanently heat-fused to the walking surface, or with anti-slip acid etch surface treatment. Both ceramic frit and anti-slip acid etch glass surface treatments meet or exceed the most stringent code requirements. To achieve translucency rather than transparency, there are a variety of standard options available.
