Canisius College Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring

Canisius College Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring. Natural light floods the halls through skylights of the Interdisciplinary Science Building of Canisius College. Accordingly, the college is to become the center of a new cutting-edge program for future scientists. As well, the sun’s rays are also enjoyed in the lounging space available on the floor below.

This maximization of sunshine is created by the Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring specified by Cannon Design. Likewise, those seeking respite on the lower level enjoy an airier space. Students who pass overhead are assured of privacy due to the frosted finish of Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring. At the same time, the frosted glass glows from the light shining through.

There is never a fear of slipping on these Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring. Why? Because the safety surface provides a unique grip for shoes that exceeds ADA requirements for slip-coefficiency.

THE GLASS 

Nathan Allan’s Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring staircase is the focal feature in this space of higher learning. For this reason, everyone walking through the space is greeted by this unique glass. There is surprise and awe by students that they are actually walking on glass. Notwithstanding, some are actually anxious at first to step on the Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring. However, as the glass is safety tempered safety laminated and engineered, students are quickly assured of complete safety. Soon the elegant pattern and bright light transmission is appreciated by all.

SPECIFICATIONS

Thick glass layers of 1.5” (38mm) low iron tempered glass, are used in this staircase. Our properly engineered Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring Opacity coatings are added to create effective privacy finishes. Individual Glass Tread panels measure 84” wide x 14” deep. At the same time, our Glass Flooring panels measure 60” x 48”. Our glass stair treads Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring are laminated with a durable, waterproof laminate. As a result, the laminate layers cannot be adversely affected by liquid spills or moisture.

DESIGN

Cannon Design selected our Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring for their stair treads and glass flooring panels. Specifically because of the unique pin dot pattern, and extra semi-opacity finish. The secondary frosted finish on our Pixel Glass Stair Treads Glass Flooring creates a contemporary look. As well, light transmission is maximized, white at the same time, privacy is insured. For this reason, students walking overhead walk in confidence and security. This dual “scientific” effect is truly unique.

Story from Our Blog

Architectural Glass Design for Louis Vuitton, Beijing China

Nathan Allan’s finished glass concepts always begin with a thought. The thought becomes an actual design, and the design morphs into a small sample for client critique and approval (see above).

Working on the minute details with our clients, our designs grow and features are added. Technical discussion begins, making sure that whatever glass designs we create, the final product has to be safety tempered and functional. Balancing decoration and functionality is often very difficult, but here at Nathan Allan, we always seem to make it happen.

As one can see below, our Creative Designer MaryAnn M is excited to pose with the beautiful finished glass product. MaryAnn literally had a “hand” in this project, spending countless hours in our factory during the crystallization of this custom glass design. This detailed design incorporates the Louis Vuitton logo, created with protruding 3D surface shapes, and accented with brilliant crystals throughout. The finished decorative glass is brilliant!
