Architects looking to bring daylight deep into building interiors now have an all-glass floor option that is impact-resistant and fire-rated for two hours. Fireframes ClearFloor allows glazing in spaces that previously would have required alternative opaque fire-stopping materials, such as concrete and corrugated steel. The custom-built system consists of two-hour, fire-rated Pilkington Pyrostop heat-barrier glass, a tempered, laminated walking surface glass, and a steel framing grid. The system provides a durable, non-slip walking surface approved for loads up to 150 psf, and is available for both interior and exterior applications.
