Glass Floors meet Sliding Glass Doors

IQ Glass - Sliding Doors meeting Glass FloorAs the UK’s leading architectural glazing company IQ Glass are often the first to see any emerging trends in residential architecture including materials used, building methods and design aspects.

On current trend emerging is the detail of glass rear doors, either sliding or bi fold, with a flush floor detail meeting an internal or external glass floor.The glass floors are generally to allow light down into basement or lower ground floors and the large expanses of glass to the rear of the upper space creates a large wall of natural light and a clear view out into the garden space.

But this connection of horizontal glass to vertical glass is not an easy one and if not handled expertly and with careful detail these complex areas of structural glass design can damage your design.

IQ's flush threshold drain

There are issues of drainage; where will water from the glass doors and also water from the glass floor outside go? Also supporting and fixing: with flush floor finishes the framing in generally below floor so where do you fix the glass floor?

Luckily IQ Glass, with years in experience designed and building technical and complex glass installations, has developed some key design details to help achieve the impossible for architects and designers.

The introduction of our Flush Threshold Drain solves the problem of drainage from these delicate areas with the drainage channel sitting flush with the track and external glass floor.

And IQ Glass have also developed our own methods of fixing and supporting these structural glass floors with no obvious supporting places.

Contact IQ Glass for more information about our proprietary fixing techniques or for any assistance on more difficult design aspects of your project.
