  • Preparation of the floor surface "black";
  • Installation of a metal frame to support and fix the floor;
  • Installation of decorative and functional elements;
  • Laying of glass blocks and decorative profile.

The preparation of the underlying surface consists of removing a layer of 15-20 cm or lifting it if necessary. In addition, all foreign objects, remains of chemical liquids, etc. should be removed from the working platform. 

The base for the glass floor must be level and have no height differences (in the contour of the support). After preparatory operations, the assistant installs a metal frame on which the glass will fall, fixing it on the surface of the base of the room.

Choose a glass floor from an infinite number of possible options: this is still half the battle, it is more difficult to realize our plans. To turn design fantasies into reality, the master must have the talent of the artist and be able to see the depicted composition before creating it. As a rule, completely different people perform work on the design of glass floors and their installation.

After creating the composition and location of functional elements, such as a diode lighting, a glass sheet or separate panels are installed. The glass is placed on the supporting frame covered with a compactor and fixed with a decorative frame, also having a layer of the compactor. For better fixation, an adhesive paste is applied between the frame and the glass sheet, after which the frames are tightened with metal bolts.
