Walk On Skylight with Pedestal Paver Application

construction

Glass Flooring Systems’ thermally broken SkyFloor® elevated units are an excellent option when incorporating walkable skylights into your roof paver layout. Our thermally broken SkyFloor® units have been designed to work perfectly within pedestal paver applications. The outside dimensions of our units are designed to layout perfectly with a 23 7/8 x 23 7/8 paver configuration or a variation of those dimensions. Each unit is engineered to withstand up to 100lbs per sqft live load* and has numerous design features to ensure a beautiful, trouble free finished product.

Thermally broken SkyFloor® units are constructed of 6063-T6 aluminum, greatly reducing the overall weight of the completed assembly while still maintaining all of the strength and load bearing capabilities required. This reduced weight provides for easier and quicker installation, saving both time and money.

All thermally broken SkyFloor® units utilize our patented framing system which incorporates our snap on setting blocks. Our setting blocks works as one with the framing members, eliminating potential installation issues or unsightly finish conditions. In addition, all thermally bro-ken frames are configured with an LED lighting channel. This provides a wave of color over the glass transforming any room into a dynamic living space.

Thermally broken SkyFloor® units come in either white or black with custom colors available upon request.
