We currently offer three (3) different anti-slip solutions for glass flooring. Please click the "More" link on each option to learn details about each - including installation photos.
Our GlassGrit™ anti-slip walking surface is the highest quality anti-slip product available. Our GlassGrit™ "beads" are permanently fused to the top surface of the glass in our state-of-the-art production process. Jockimo is the first company in the industry to pass ASTM-C-1028, to obtain UL 410 classification, and receive NFSI phase 2 certification on its glass flooring products.
GlassGrit™ will not fade or lose its anti-slip capabilities over time. GlassGrit™ is suitable for exterior or interior applications. GlassGrit™ exceeds ADA requirements and we offer the first anti-scratch walking surface in the industry utilizing our JGlass™.
Our GlassEtch™ products are developed entirely through an acid etching technique where portions of the glass surface are removed to varying depths. This controlled process delivers an attractive and durable anti-slip surface. The GlassEtch™ acid etched walking surfaces serves a dual role – a safe walking surface and a modesty surface. The consistent acid-etched finish obscures the viewing through the glass while maintaining a high level of light transmittance.
GlassEtch™ walking surfaces have passed ASTM-C-1028. Custom GlassEtch™ surfaces are available.
Our GlassFrit™ products are made via silk screening onto the glass, much like how a t-shirt is printed, and then baked onto the glass. GlassFrit™ is UL Classified and has passed ASTM-C-1028 testing. Our GlassFrit™ products deliver a high level of anti-slip coefficient. GlassFrit™ is available in both standard or custom patterns. JGlass™ can also be easily applied to provide an anti-slip and anti-scratch walking surface. Custom GlassFrit™ surfaces are available upon request.
When specifying a glass-flooring product designers should review the privacy aspects of the installation. In public applications an obscure product should be used so that improprieties do not occur. This obscure product should still allow for light to pass through the glass. Jockimo offers both transparent and translucent options to fit most every project requirement. Please click the links above to learn about the numerous options that we offer.

Daylight harvesting is the practice of capturing light from an exterior wall, by making adjacent walls and floors transparent so that light can travel freely across room interiors. The glass-flooring product should allow for the maximum amount of daylight to pass. Therefore, the use of opaque anti-slip material should be avoided. Daylight harvesting reduces electrical consumption and provides access to nature by the occupants of a building. Numerous studies have proven that human performance is increased when exposed to daylight. The intent of the Indoor Environmental Quality Credit 8.1: in the USGBC LEED ® V3 reference guide is to provide occupants with a connection between the indoors and the outdoors. Using glass-flooring panels for daylight harvesting is a means to create transparency for this important environmental strategy.
Jockimo Glass Flooring Daylighting - Oklahoma City Federal Building Monolithically Polished Edges
Jockimo is the only glass flooring manufacturer that offers a monolithically polished edge on our fully tempered glass stair treads and flooring after laminating. Others may offer polishing but their glass is annealed and in our opinion, not as safe as fully tempered glass.
GlassGrit™ monolithically polished edges Customization / Other Available Options
Customization is our specialty. We can provide various glass colors, lamination colors, paints, silvering, custom frost, special lamination inter-layers including our ImagenGlass™ or DichroGlass™ as well as standard and custom Jockimo cast glass textures. We would love to develop a custom product for you using your design/ideas or one of ours!

Anti-scratch walking surface.
Jockimo is proud to announce JGlass™ - our anti-scratch solution for glass flooring. This new technology is the first in the glass flooring industry and meets a growing requirement among architects and interior designers. JGlass™ can be applied to the entire family of Jockimo anti-slip glass flooring surfaces as well as their ThickGlass™ counter tops and vertical cast glass products. Here are the details on JGlass™:
Highly water-repellent (hydrophobic), and so:
Require less frequent cleanings
Experience a reduction in mold and bacteria
Easier to clean – eliminating the need for harsh chemical cleaners.
Stain and graffiti resistant.
Resistant to leaching of calcium and sodium (etching caused by hard water).
At least 1,000 times more electrical resistant (additional electrical insulation).
At least 20% more brilliant (shine in glass surfaces).
ADA compliant anti-slip walking surface
The anti-slip walking surface needs to exceed the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirements of 0.5. Various anti-slip surfaces are available and it is important to verify that the selected surface meets the ADA requirements. ALL Jockimo anti-slip options listed above are UL Classified!
As well as meeting the ADA requirement for slip resistance Jockimo also offers an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) required contrasting strip on the nosing of stair treads and landings. Jockimo is the first and only glass flooring manufacturer offering this option. Available in various colors or patterns.

Laminated glass products historically do not work well in exterior applications when the edges of glass are exposed to the elements. The development of new and improved lamination products has eliminated this concern allowing glass-flooring products to be used in exterior applications. At Jockimo we have produced our glass flooring products for many exterior applications with success in all aspects.
