Big D Construction Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring
Nathan Allan’s Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring features an exclusive safety finish called Glass Sandpaper. Glass Sandpaper is designed specifically to be walked on. Glass Sandpaper is a durable safety finish, long lasting, and very effective at providing slip-resistance. The Glass Sandpaper finish on our glass treads is designed to be used in both wet and dry conditions. With a high ASTM safety rating, our decorative glass stairs can used both indoors and outdoors.
Many safety finishes are designed for vertical panels, to be used as spandrel or privacy finishes. When used as a walking surface, these finishes can wear off and have very low safety finish ratings. Glass Sandpaper is the exception.
Thick, heavy layers of 5/8” (15mm) glass are used to produce this properly engineered Glass Stair Tread. Our Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring are laminated with our effective waterproof laminate.
Architect Gillies Stransky Brems Smith chose our architectural glass, Diamondplate pattern for these Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring. The pattern is formed into the bottom layer of the glass. However, the Diamondplate pattern simulates the traditional steel plate stair tread, but with a modern twist. The effect is a stunning, contemporary look that is truly unique, yet pays homage to classic industrial design.
The Diamondplate kiln-formed Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring for Big D Construction required glazing expertise. Installing the Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring properly and safely, is critical. In particular, Big D used proper glass cushions to shield the glass treads from any metal contact. Conversely pin mount connections are recessed into the Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring, avoiding any raised surface contact. Technical information provided by Nathan Allan engineers.
