Important notes prior to request

The glass floor RFI is typically used for interior or exterior horizontal glass panels:

          • Not forming part of the upper weathertight boundary of the building/structure.
          • For applications designed to be walked on. Can be internal non-trafficable areas, or exterior decks as well.

NOTE: roof panels (forming the weathertight boundary) are not regarded as glass floors, even if they are horizontal – please use the sloped glazing RFI.

Please have all of the following information available to complete the RFI form in one session:

    1. E-mail address for recipient of PS1.
    2. Project details (street address, owner/developer, client/designer).

    4. Project occupancy type.
