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 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.
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!

Jockimo was the first company in the industry to receive UL and NFSI certification on its glass flooring products. We are also the first company in the industry to meet worldwide (US, UK, EU, AU) anti-slip standards with our exclusive products.
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.
