Whether panels are joined together with clear silicone joints for an almost seamless effect or supported by aluminum, steel or even glass beams, fixed multi-panel floors can have a huge impact on a property. Large spaces can be covered, and the use of multiple panels means this can be achieved without the use of a crane, lowering installation costs.
Furthermore, with comfort insulation and a wide variety of films and coatings available to ensure a consistent temperature is maintained by working with solar gain, flooring a significant area of the property with multiple-glass panels no longer means elevated heating costs or discomfort in the warmer summer months.
There's no glass ceiling to the visual and functional impact that a glass floor can have, except in the sense there are many different options open to you should you want your glass floor to serve a dual purpose, such as acting as a glass roof, or an access point which facilitates movement around the property.
The kind of opening glass floor you choose will depend on whether you want to ventilate the surrounding space, increase ease of access to it, or achieve both of these effects simultaneously.
