Safety concerns when ordering
When ordering products please consider safety issues: surface needs to meet safety standards and, in the case of flooring, needs to be laminated. For some cases double lamination is sufficient; however it is recommended to laminate at least 3 layers for stairs and flooring. Each section needs to be tempered as well.
Glass panel stairs are also a great development in the industry where each step is laminated and provide structural support and needed safety for application. Our craftsman laminate up to five layers of glass designing the thickness and look per your requirements.
Another concern is the slippery factor. As we all understand smooth surfaces might become extremely dangerous if slipped on. Spilled liquids are not always visible and can create potential hazard and danger.
If the client chooses some pattern to be visible on the steps or railing around, our artisans will carve and texture the very bottom layer of the step, thus keeping it not exposed to stepping, but at the same time creating visual impression.
As transparent medium allows to see through the layers of lamination, carving and texturing done for visual reasons is better saved on the bottom section of the step unit.
From design concept to execution by a manufacturer
While the idea of glass for stairs existed for a long time and some applications were there in the industry before, it is the new styles of stair treads that are etched or carved on smooth surface that make the use of this product practical rather than an awkward design solution.
Our design team will advise on design patterns that can be applied to the surface. Client can choose subtle lines carved on the edge of the unit or they can become some etched patterns incorporated in the concept of the product.
