At Sierra Glass Block and Hawaii Glass Block, we have been supplying glass flooring and stairs for nearly 3 decades. Walkable Glass was first used on boats as deck prisms then migrated to city sidewalks in the 1800's that allowed natural light into shopkeepers basement storage spaces, first with a steel framework and then concrete and cast glass pavers, which are still in use in many large cities. These glass pavers often turned purple in color over time due to the presence of cobalt in the glass.
With advancements in materials like structural glass and aluminum grid systems combined with a resurgence in the desire to utilize natural light Glass Flooring has become a popular choice for Architects wanting to let light penetrate into dark areas and showcase collections from wine to cars above and below the glass floors.
We’re committed to giving our customers options. With that in mind, we’re able to use a variety of different materials, including:
Aluminum Grid Systems and Structural Glass either clear or translucent in standard or low iron glass with Traction Control Ceramic Frit in standard or custom patterns.
