Semco Step - Airy design

Glass floors and other accessible glass surfaces are an effective medium for the transparent design of interior spaces. They contribute to the positive enhancement of light conditions in a building object.

These elegant structures can be used as transparent flooring, dance floors, fair stands, stages or steps. Background lighting - clear, diffuse or even coloured - can also set accents and emphasise the transparency of the glass.

Construction-example of an accessible glass surface
  • Glass floors and steps visually provide lightness and give rooms a particular elegance
  • Illuminated lighting strips behind steps with diverse LED's are possible
  • Can be combined with colour films for colourful designs
  • Non-slip screen printing with individual designs is also possible (non-slip properties tested to DIN 51130)
  • Daylight penetrates the glass elements, lighting up the underlying space

Manufacturing information

The glasses have at least one ground edge that should not be used as the visual edge. The structure of accessible glazing is generally made of a multi-pane laminated safety glass. To avoid damage, the statically-bearing glass packet is also protected by a cover pane. Float glass or tempered glass must be used for the supporting glass structure. The cover pane consists of single-glazing tempered glass or heat strengthend glass to increase the loading capacity and breaking strength.

Accessible glass plates are not regulated building products. They require approval in individual cases by the highest construction supervision authority or a general construction approval. The German technical rules for the use of glazing with linear supports (TRLV: status  8-2006) basically regulate glazing that is supported linearly on all four sides up to the maximum dimensions of 1500 x 400 mm.
