Glass Floors

Glass Floors in Melbourne from the Glass Flooring Professionals

Glass flooring is a great alternative to standard floor applications. The use of internal glass flooring speaks of luxury, creating an ambience of warmth while still maintaining a contemporary architectural look. Perfect for commercial areas as well as the home, glass floors offer both versatility and style, possessing the ability to open up any area to natural light.

The team of professional glaziers at Design Inferno Glass have all the necessary experience and knowledge to measure and install quality glass floors in Melbourne. We place a sacrificial layer on top of the structural glass to allow for fast and easy replacement should the glass become marked or scratched, resulting in a lower cost compared to replacing the entire floor. Alternatively, the glass we provide can be installed by any qualified glazier who has adequate experience with trafficable glass. 

A Wide Range of Styles

We make glass for internal glass floors and can provide a variety of glass styles and thicknesses to suit your specific preferences. Choose from a clear or frosted finish, with options including Starphire and Clear Float glass.

Please note that we do not specify, supply or install frames or supports for your glass floor. We recommend consulting a builder or structural engineer for installation, after which we can measure for the glass panels. Keep in mind that the frame must provide support to every panel of glass on every edge by at least 30mm.

There is no set thickness that glass flooring must be. This all depends on many factors, including: Load bearing, panel size, location and so on. These and many other aspects are considered when planning a glass floor. For a quote on glass flooring, simply contact Design Inferno Glass and we will determine the right solution for you. Design Inferno Glass floors include a sacrificial layer; a thinner layer of glass on top of the structural glass which can be replaced at a much lower cost than replacing the floor itself. This can be replaced should the surface of the glass become scratched.
Glass flooring can come in either a clear (see through) or frosted finish. The see through finish can be made with either Starphire or Clear Float glass, to read about the difference between these 2 types of glass, click here. When Design Inferno Glass make glass floors in a clear finish, they add a painted border under the glass to conceal the support frame. Frosted finish is a great way to let light into lower levels, as the glass will glow when hit by direct sunlight – allowing for more light to fill the rooms below.
Design Inferno Glass do not specify, supply or install any supports for the glass floor. This must be specified by a strutural engineer (usually through a builder) and installed prior to the glass being measured. This frame must support every panel of glass on every edge by a minimum of 30mm.
Design Inferno Glass recommends using their professional team of glaziers to measure and install glass flooring, however this can be installed by any qualified glazier who is experianced in installing trafficable glass.
Brewster’s Fringes occur when 2 panels of high quality glass are placed in parallel (for example when a sacrificail layer of glass is placed onto glass flooring) and can create an “oily” illusion. This can often be mistaken for liquid caught between the 2 panels of glass, however in reality are just an example of the way light behaves. Brewster’s Fringes are wavelengths of light meeting up with each other when they are exactly 180 degrees out of phase – an example of this phenomenon is known to physicists as the ‘interference’ of light. Brewster’s Fringes only occur when the surfaces of the glass are flat and the two panes of glass are parallel to each other. What happens is that some of the incident light from the Sun meets light reflected from one of the surfaces of the insulating glass in such a way that they are 180 degrees out of phase and cancel each other out, thereby giving rise to a fringe (sort of oily looking) effect, small in area on the glass when viewed from a particular angle. Alternatively, different parts of the incident solar radiation may be refracted through the glass by different amounts and end up by being 180 degrees out of phase. This phenomenon is not a defect of the product, being dependant on the laws of physics and not the quality of the glass. In fact it arises because modern glass made by the float process is flat and, therefore, free of the distortion.
