The IBP Glass Paver Grid System allows you open up an area to pedestrian traffic without creating 'dead space' below. Light passes through an IBP floor, so more natural light reaches the space underneath an important consideration for walkways, and the colorful underfloor lighting can create a striking effect.
The IBP Glass Paver Grid System sets real glass block in a precision engineered, custom-manufactured aluminum grid that allows both for building movement and for expansion/contraction of glass block and surrounding materials.
.
IBP now offers a floor system engineered for the next generation in structural glass: laminated units 1 inch thick. The heart of the GlassWalk™ structural glass floor system is the modular IBP aluminum frame. For most installations, IBP supplies two-ply laminated glass units: a top layer tempered for impact resistance and a heat-strengthened bottom layer, bonded with a clear resin interlayer. GlassWalk™ SG system is rated for glass units up to a 48 inch clear span with a 48 inch width (a full 16 SF area) or up to an 89 inch clear span in a 5 inch width.
